2004 Election Summary
Liberty Compact: A Candidate's
The Liberty Compact is a written pledge inspired by
the words of the late Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) in his
book, "Conscience of a Conservative," which
promotes the belief that government isn't the solution, but
all too often, the problem. The pledge reads as follows:
"I, (insert name), pledge to the citizens of the
State of (insert state) and to the American people, that as
their elected representative I will work to: Restore
liberty, not restrict it; shrink government, not expand it;
reduce taxes, not raise them; abolish programs, not create
them; promote the freedom and independence of citizens, not
the interference of government in their lives; and observe
the limited, enumerated powers of our Constitution, not
The RLC announced the Pledge project on Independence
Day of 2001, to mark the true significance of the 4th of
July and the Declaration of Independence. Since then, an
estimated four dozen incumbents and candidates have signed
the RLC pledge.
The Liberty Compact may be used by candidates to promote
their campaigns to liberty-minded voters. It is a
preliminary requirement to obtain an official RLC
endorsement or RLCUSA-PAC support. The objective is to
assist and identify candidates, both local and national, who
deserve consideration by liberty advocates.
