Dennis Bradley on Government Reform

 


Remove limits on individual political donations

Q: Do you support or oppose stricter limits on political campaign funds?

A: I strongly believe that we need to do away with PACs and any other groups that can be used to determine the outcome of an election. Any person should be able to give any amount of money directly to the candidate of his or her choice. That is the ultimate in free speech.

Adhere to 10th Amendment; delegate power to states.

Bradley signed the Tenth Amendment Pledge:

    As a public office holder, or a candidate for public office, I promise that, as long as I hold office:
  1. My votes will always be in favor of the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of this State. Every issue. Every time. No exceptions. No excuses.
  2. I do, and will continue to, oppose any and all efforts by the federal government to act beyond its Constitutional authority.
  3. I will proactively introduce and support measures designed to adhere to the Tenth Amendment and preserve, to their fullest extent, the powers of the People in my district, and of the legislators and administrations of my State.
  4. I will introduce, sponsor and support a resolution affirming the sovereignty of the People of each State under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
  5. I will introduce, sponsor, and support legislation that seeks to repeal laws and regulations that are outside the scope of the powers delegated by the people to the federal government.
  6. I will introduce, sponsor and support legislation that provides such relief as is necessary and proper to provide fair redress to the citizens of my State in response to actions by the federal government which exceeds its Constitutional authority.
  7. Whenever I vote in favor of a new federal power, I will always make public my justification for it within the confines of the enumerated powers of the Constitution.
  8. I will only vote in favor of a bill that I have thoroughly read, considered and understood.
  9. I will be accountable to voters. Upon request, I will make public every vote I cast while in office.
  10. I will keep this pledge public, and will provide a link on my website which directs constituents to the text of this pledge.
