Not All Oaths Have Meaning

Originally, billed as the GOP-elite’s best idea to stop Donald Trump from being nominated, worrying he’d take his supporters and run as an independent, harming GOP efforts to win against Hillary Clinton. Nothing like a plan back-firing on its planners; I mean it isn’t all that shock that it failed, given that all the Progressive minds that supported this stupid idea.

After all, it is a ‘means nothing’ kind of oath:

“I [name] affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for president of the United States I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is. I further pledge that I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate nor will I seek or accept the nomination for president of any other party.”

Now, here’s an oath that means something:

“I, [name] do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the Officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God!”

And it has no expiration date.
