“The 9/12 Pledge’s principles and values encapsulated the philosophy that has guided me since I broke from the black orthodoxy more than 30 years ago and declared myself to be a conservative and a Republican,” he said. “All of the values my parents instilled in me – the primacy of God in my life, my dignity and value as an individual human being, the rewards of personal responsibility and accountability, and love for my fellow man – were right there in black and white, staring back at me. I didn’t hesitate to sign and submit my pledge and it will be easy for me to uphold its tenets as a servant of the people should God bless me with a victory in 2010.”
