I like how Dave explained that the pledges are part of having a bit of faith that there are some politicians out there with some beliefs and ideas they value. I am skeptical that there are politicians that will stick their necks out and argue for progressive politics in the pledges but some well worth pledges to make into policies here.

It’s a good idea to get prospective politicians to stand up for some principles rather than just being competent managers. Some of these pledges are well worth considering.
