Stella Tremblay makes Election Pledge

With this pledge I submit my name for consideration to represent You.

It is my opinion that criteria to run for office should not depend on having a “Harvard”   education, or just for those who have the financial means.

It is important for elected officials to love their country…and to understand and apply the Constitution; remembering that it is a document inspired by God…to our Founding Fathers…and does LIMIT Government power…expressly so, by its inherent design.

An elected official should be willing to serve without self-interest. To base their decision on what is best for the Country and the individual according to the Constitution: NOT on the PARTY TO WHOM THEY AFFILIATE.  When their term is over and they have fulfilled their duty, they return to the public sector without lifetime compensation for their duty.

May I impress upon you…that we do have the right and freedom to choose without being coerced.  This concept and plan has been around from Our Foundation.

You should ask yourselves this question:  do you want to have the freedom to make your own decisions, whether at the cost of personal failure or success…and reap the consequences of those actions…or do you want the GOVERNMENT to make those decisions for you? It is by these actions…those of making our own decisions…that the experience and knowledge we gain for ourselves throughout our lives…can be reached. I’m sure that you’ll agree…that they cannot be resolved…in any other way.

We need to “restore” the original intent of the Constitution of the United States of America.   “The Government” is there to “uphold our individual Freedoms” and to “protect those freedoms”  from foreign and domestic threats.

I promise you:

  • I will do my best to vote on the side of individual Liberty and Freedom…
  • To be honest, forthright and to the point…
  • To be available to you…should you have specific concerns…
  • To limit Government intrusion at the State level and enforce the Constitution of New Hampshire that is in place; thereby setting the boundaries that exist between Federal and State Governments.

Therefore, as your public servant…I swear to you that it is my express intent…to implement this pledge now…while serving you in the future…and always…so help me God.

Candidate for State Representative

  1. From the Daily Show back in August:

    STEWART: See, that’s the whole thing, that they talk about the sacrosanct nature of the Constitution, when they like what it says, then suddenly they say, hey that’s not what the Founders meant, they don’t want to do that. They want to pick and choose the parts of the Constitution that they want. That’s the problem with this original intent business. We have the Founders’ words, but no one really knows what they were thinking, and they were not monolithic to begin with.

    HODGMAN: Ah, ah, ah, no one Jon? Or no one minus one? I should tell you that I’m a noted Founding Father psychologist, as you would know if you had read my book: “Men Are from Mars, James Madison Was a God-like Genius Who Could Do No Wrong, And I Am the Only One Who Knows What He Was Thinking”.

      Instead of a cut and pasted feeble attempt at humor, you could have simply stated that you believe that the Constitution is a malleable document that conforms to your views and definitions rather than those of Ms. Tremblay.

    Hi -am I the only one here? Is this a Halloween Joke? What God inspired the Constitution? Is this a real person – is this your idea of a Halloween Joke?

    The founding fathers were slave owners, had no respect for the right of women (like you?) to even speak in public – let alone vote.

    Look up the constitutional amendment that gave you – a woman – the right to vote. Document the year.

    This is definitely a joke. Good one, admin.

      Tina,
      If you do not like the United States or how it was founded/Built, why stay.. EU is right on the other side of the pond. Two more weeks can’t come fast enough!!!

    The founding fathers were a collection of extraordinarily prescient men. They bequeathed us an amazing document, a rigid framework that has allowed us to witness a thriving democracy in action for over two hundred years. Yes, there have been changes over the years, 27 of them, but not a wholesale revamping as many on the left would like. The Constitution is not to be altered as if it were an ill fitting garment. It is to be honored, revered, and upheld. So when a candidate for public office pledges to do so they should be applauded, not held up to public ridicule.

    I’m sorry Tina, but this time the joke is on you. I will be laughing heartily come November 2nd.

      Hi Frank…I think Tina’s bigger issue was with the inference that the document had been handed down by God himself.

      But, since you brought it up…Your statement that “The Constitution is not to be altered as if it were an ill fitting garment”…That may well be true for the articles, and i’ll even give you the first 10 amendments (otherwise known as the bill of rights)…but how do we get by the other 17 amendments that have been “altered as an ill fitting garment” in the years after 1787/1791? I guess people of color who can now vote, women who can now vote, and all citizens who benefit from due process should be mighty thrilled that the states and congress “altered” the sacred document!

        Come on, Chris. You know James Madison carried the Constitution down some mountain engraved on stone tablets.

    “The founding fathers were a collection of extraordinarily prescient men.”

    Did they really have the foresight to see women having the right to vote?
    I have nothing but respect for the framers of the Constitution. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows that, at that time, they were establishing a government by the people, for the people. The tyrannical policies of the monarchy had been dealt with.

    It was a different time – no reasonable person would dispute this. You cannot ascertain my political views by disputing my opinion that anyone who runs for political office would attempt to bolster their position by wrapping themselves in facts that are simply not true.

    There is no “joke” to be played on me. The only joke is ignorance. Unfortunately, too many politicians are hoping that our collective ignorance will win them a seat in the government that is now bought and sold by the people that our founding fathers would abhor.

    The Constitution has been amended many times. Thanks, C. Melcher.
    The amendment that allows me to vote happened many, many years after the “prescient’ writers of our Constitution could have reasonably imagined.

  5. There we go again, the Democrats reading between the lines once again, on any chance they get to attack someone’s support of Religion, where Stella wrote “remembering that it is a document inspired by God…to our Founding Fathers”

    The Democrats need to go back to their history books and see why many immigrants came to America. I see the Democrats were confused as to the meaning that many were inspired by God!!!

    Respectfully,

    Mr. Baldasaro, I have a great deal of respect for your military service as well as your political service to this country. I even vote for you!
    I am neither a Democrat or a Republican. I am a concerned citizen who feels that inserting God into politics is wrong. I am also the child of immigrants who, I believe, would agree with me.

  7. Tina,
    I apologize to you and anyone else that takes my comments the wrong way but whether we like it or not the Immigrants came here to establish Freedom of religion and the history of our country proves that the signers of our constitution and Bill of Rights were very religious in inspiring them to protect the Religious Freedoms we have today.

    Tina,

    Do you realize that votes were actually taken at the constitutional convention to establish a national religion? Not whether there should or shouldn’t be one. They voted on whether it should be Presbyterian, Baptist, Episcopal and one or two others. No one religion received enough votes so they chose not to establish one. NOWHERE, in any document establishing our republic doest it state that there must be a seperation of church and state. This is just an interpretation by 9 people that fits a certain political view. So to say that God shouldn’t be brought into politics I say why not? Except for a couple more votes, we might very well have a national and government endorsed religion.

    The most influential of our founding fathers, Jefferson, Washington, Madison, and Paine, were Deists. That means they believed in a God but not neccessarily a religion. In fact, the word God is nowhere to be found in the Constitution. The First Amendment proscribes Congress from establishing a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

    Reduced to it most basic element, the First Amendment guarantees you freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

    Bill, I am not unaware of the history involved. Your comments are the very reason I have stated that God should not be brought into politics. Do you really want to go back to the King of England who had the power to cast aside the teachings of the then Pope and redo the rules to suit himself and his all powerful reign? In keeping with your train of thought, we should all be Christians. Doesn’t matter what denomination – as long as we are all Christians.

    Of course you must be smart enough to know that many of those who voted were agnostics and atheists. They knew what was politically correct back then. In your world, I guess we should all be Christians or suffer the consequences?

    People have fought and died for religion since the beginning of time. This country, the United States of America, has a Constitution that very clearly does not allow the establishment of religion. There is nothing in the Constitution that requires a separation of Church and state. I know that. Supreme Court decisions have been predicated on the interpretation of the Constitution and the amendments that have followed. The Constitution beautifully allows for the three branches of government to have checks and balances.

    If you do not realize that your God has no business in my being able to live freely – well, you just don’t get it.

      Tina,
      Being a mind reader must carry a heavy burden. Where did I say that I was a christian or that I’m advocating for a certain religion. I merely stated that the founding fathers contemplated and actually voted on establishing a national religion. I believe that government has no place in religion. That doesn’t mean that others couldn’t argue that there is a place for it. I believe that the Supreme Court overstepped it’s bounds in coming up with the seperation of church and state ruling. How is it that putting a cross or a Star of David on a piece of public land is an endorsement of a particular religion? Or having a moment of silience for those who wish to pray at a high school graduation. This from the very court that opens every session with a prayer and has Moses holding the ten commandments on the freize on the courthouse.

    Bill, Sorry – I took my train of thought and made it yours. It’s such a heated issue, I got a little carried away. I am not against religion. Thirteen years with the Sisters of Notre Dame made sure of that. I realize how close the country came to having an established religion. Thankfully, we do not.

    I just see so many references to God in politcal ads and speeches that I find it disconcerting. However, as you stated, God and religious symbols are most certainly woven into our political culture.

    I have been watching a great series on PBS – God in America. It’s a great documentary and especially relevant now given the most recent controversy concerning the “Ground Zero mosque/community center.”
