Rudy’s Contract with America

giuliani.jpg  First of all, I am not personally endorsing Rudy, but he is a major candidate and has just made probably the most substantive and detailed proposal for the 2008 campaign by either party to date (I know that the Paul supporters will dispute this, so I will nod to that).  Rudy announced yesterday, Tuesday 6/12/07, his broad outline of 12 promises to America that I expect he plans to shape his campaign around.  I guess that these things if done would please some and displease others or some may be acceptable while others unacceptable.  I will look forward to how he expands these concepts to clarify just what they mean.  There are some that I am interested in, some that I need clarity on.  Off hand pending further detail I like 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9.  Although I don’t necessarily dislike 5, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 12 I’d like to know what he means by them.  I don’t believe that Rudy will find many if any of these items exclusive to his campaign.

  1. I will keep America on offense in the Terrorists’ War on Us.

  2. I will end illegal immigration, secure our borders, and identify every non-citizen in our nation.

  3. I will restore fiscal discipline and cut wasteful Washington spending.

  4. I will cut taxes and reform the tax code.

  5. I will impose accountability on Washington.

  6. I will lead America towards energy independence.

  7. I will give Americans more control over and access to healthcare with affordable and portable free-market solutions.

  8. I will increase adoptions, decrease abortions, and protect the quality of life for our children.

  9. I will reform the legal system and appoint strict constructionist judges.

  10. I will ensure that every community in America is prepared for terrorist attacks and natural disasters.

  11. I will provide access to a quality education to every child in America by giving real school choice to parents.

  12. I will expand America’s involvement in the global economy and strengthen our reputation around the world
