Virginia GOP Will Require Primary Voters To Sign Party Loyalty Oath

Wonder how many Christians will sign this? 

Virginia: The state Republican Party will require voters to sign a loyalty oath in order to participate in the March 6 presidential primary. Anyone who wants to vote must sign a form at the polling place pledging to support the eventual Republican nominee for president. Anyone who refuses to sign will be barred from voting in the primary.

Signs for polling places and the pledge form will advise voters that “Section 24.2-545 of the Code of Virginia allows the political party holding a primary to determine requirements for voting in the primary, including ‘the signing of a pledge by the voter of his intention to support the party’s candidate when offering to vote in the primary.'”

The pledge will require the voter to sign and to print his name beneath a line that says: “I, the undersigned, pledge that I intend to support the nominee of the Republican Party for president.”  (Va. GOP will require loyalty oath in presidential primary)

  1. Between this gem and the whole Newt Gingrich fiasco, it will be interesting to see how voter turnout is affected. As unpopular as the current President is what with the economic pain all around us, the opposition is extremely divided into very uncompromising camps. The GOP leadership *knows* this and are determined to avoid the political trainwreck that looms for the coming election. There are only two things that unite “Republicans” these days: 1) no more taxes, and 2) no more Obama. EVERYTHING else is confusion between the three very distinct and divergent camps represented by the three leading candidates in the Iowa caucuses. Putting all of this mixed bag together into a winning campaign in November will take a miracle of the first order..

    • There are only two things that unite “Republicans” these days: 1) no more taxes, and 2) no more Obama.

      True. The only thing i’d change is “no more Obama” would be the number one thing. 🙂

  2. How can this even be constitutional?????

    • I don’t know…like you, i thought this would be against some law but apparently its not. It should be.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
