Big promises from "America's Mayor"

Yes, yes. As readers know, we're still open to a good candidate for president. Right now that includes only three people -- Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, and Rudy Giuliani. Today, Rudy took a big step forward in what can only be termed as emulating the 1994 Republican Congress' "Contract with America." He unveiled his Twelve Commiments to America:

1. I will keep America on offense in the Terrorists’ War on Us.

2. I will end illegal immigration, secure our borders, and identify every non-citizen in our nation.

3. I will restore fiscal discipline and cut wasteful Washington spending.

4. I will cut taxes and reform the tax code.

5. I will impose accountability on Washington.

6. I will lead America towards energy independence.

7. I will give Americans more control over, and access to, healthcare with affordable and portable free-market solutions.

8. I will increase adoptions, decrease abortions, and protect the quality of life for our children.

9. I will reform the legal system and appoint strict constructionist judges.

10. I will ensure that every community in America is prepared for terrorist attacks and natural disasters.

11. I will provide access to a quality education to every child in America by giving real school choice to parents.

12. I will expand America’s involvement in the global economy and strengthen our reputation around the world.

Big promises. But you have to give him credit for coming out and stating, point blank, what he is standing for as the man running for president. What have we heard fromt he other candidates. Well, if you're supporting Tancredo or Hunter, they're one trick ponies who can only harangue the public about immigration. Ron Paul is against anything unconstitutional (sometimes even his own existence, it seems). Jim Gilmore can only cite his record as governor, and the amount of vetoes he's cast. Get my point? The others aren't really offering America anything other than talking points. Rudy, Mitt, and Fred have come forward with where they stand, and to America that means a lot.
