New Thoughts on the Pledge

Below is the 3 item Pledge. I was surprised to hear from 2 people that Democrats would never agree with it. I had thought it was nonpartisan. Your view?

I was asked to put a review by the people into the pledge, but since we have a Representative form of government, I don’t know how that would work. Can you help?

Finally, I think a #4 should be added: no government support of any kind for gain of function research, “gain of function” being a metaphor or misnomer for deliberately making microorganisms more virulent/dangerous. Ideas on adding this?

A Pledge to Regain our Democratic Traditions

1.  REVOKE COVID EMERGENCY LAWS and INTRODUCE LEGISLATIVE REVIEW OF EMERGENCIES

I support limits on government powers conferred by an emergency declaration.  All government emergency laws, rules, regulations, orders, and any other directives must have strict time limits, not to exceed 2 weeks. Legislative and/or administrative government actions must recommence immediately at the end of two weeks.
