The framers of the Constitution were very concerned about our nation’s sovereignty: they wanted America to be a place free of foreign influence, where our governance and destiny would be self-determined.
Recent events have undermined and called into question certain politicians’ dedication to this core tenet of American democracy. Now is the moment for both citizens and elected officials to reaffirm our commitment to self-rule.
To that end, We the People have begun collecting signatures on a petition, asking our current and future elected representatives to make the Pledge to Defend American Sovereignty (see language in the next section). DemCast will deliver petition signatures to lawmakers (based on zip codes of signers) on November 30th.
Politicians can read the Pledge language below, followed by instructions about how to sign on. Those who do so will be listed at the bottom of this page. The fact is, we shouldn’t even have to ask, and this shouldn’t be a difficult commitment to make. We hope all politicians – on both sides of the aisle – agree to defend our sovereignty.
Signatories to The Pledge
Candidates and officials at all levels of office, both federal and non-federal, are encouraged to declare their agreement with the above pledge. To do so, please fill out the form below or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (from any official or campaign email address). DemCast and partners will then circulate your declaration via our social media channels.
We also encourage you to publicly declare your commitment via social media. If you do so, please use the hashtag #PledgeToDefend and #DemCast, and our supporters will amplify you. Thank you in advance for standing up for America.
