"For anyone who questions why the president has authored this plan, these pledges will be the answers. Because the American people demanded it. The pledge canvass will also be the first step in growing our movement and building a nationwide network to support our agenda for change. This is just the beginning for us."
Guy in a brown shirt (no irony there?) tells us that Obama/America/the Fatherland/ whatever needs these "pledges." Because the PLEDGES are the answer to "anyone who questions" the plan. So the questioners should sign the pledge. And give their email addresses and personal information.
And the people are "demanding" Obama's agenda because they signed the pledge. No one would be, say, a little scared when bunches of people from a pseudo-governmental organization showed up at their homes and asked them whether they support the current administration. No one would, say, be a little scared that this might be the year they get a tax audit if they don't.
I'm telling you, the idea of an entire cadre of these people swarming about my neighbourhood is a bit chilling. I'd rather have ten visits from my local Mormons AND the Jehovah's Witnesses AND the stupid (name) for Mayor campaign visits we've been getting of late, than see this happen.
Who are these people, anyway?
