We are excited to have you consider signing The Results Pledge. The pledge is simply a declaration by concerned Americans that they believe it is critical to the future of this country that government focus on delivering results.
We invite you to sign The Results Pledge.
Here it is….
The Results Pledge
Whereas, I believe in these United States of America, and hold as precious the sentiments Abraham Lincoln expressed at Gettysburg in 1863: “A government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from this earth.”
Whereas, I believe we as a nation have lost our way, and that as a citizen I have the sacred duty to speak for the betterment of our Union.
Whereas, increasingly our political system does not serve the people, but instead has degenerated into a circular world of ideological rhetoric that serves only the desire to get elected and re-elected in order to maintain or accumulate power.
Whereas, I believe our government can, should, and must work for the common good.
Whereas, I believe the mission of our Government is to make this Nation better, and that our Nation should lead the world with:
- The best-educated people
- The most innovative and prosperous economy
- The safest place to live, work, and raise a family
- The most responsible sustainability practices
- The healthiest and fittest people
- A second-to-none infrastructure
- A government respected for its efficiency and effectiveness
Whereas, these goals can be best achieved by a Government that thrives on being transparent, efficient, effective, and accountable to its citizens, routinely publishing its results in scorecards that demonstrate its progress.
Whereas, henceforth our Government shall function for the purpose of achieving RESULTS, and that we shall elect and appoint as our government leaders those people who demonstrate actions that achieve the results we as a nation hold dear.
Therefore, I sign The Results Pledge with the very words used by the signers of our founding Declaration of Independence, in order to demonstrate the strength of my resolve: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
