The Liberty Compact was inspired by the late Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, author of “Conscience of a Conservative,” who argued government was not the solution — but the problem.
Candidates for public office seeking the endorsement of the Republican Liberty Caucus are asked to sign the Liberty Compact, which can be downloaded as a word document (.doc) or can be printed from a PDF and sent to the Maine RLC.
I pledge to the citizens of this State, and to the American people, that as their elected representative I will work to: restore liberty, not restrict it; shrink government, not expand it; reduce taxes, not raise them; abolish programs, not create them; promote the freedom and independence of citizens, not the interference of government in their lives; and observe the limited, enumerated powers of our Constitution, not ignore them.
Liberty Compact signers include Congressmen Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Ron Paul (R-TX), John Shadegg (R-AZ), and former Congressman Bob Barr (R-GA). In this year, when liberty is so imperiled we are urging all of our Republican presidential candidates to sign the Liberty Compact.
