Signers of Contract with Michigan

Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections, along with other cosponsors, is pleased to announce signatories to the Contract with Michigan. On Aug. 7, 2021, PIME supporters voted to adopt the Contract of Michigan. Contoured along the lines of Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, the agreement is intended to serve as a litmus test for constitutional candidates and to help provide positive exposure to the signatories. 

Signatories:

  1. Ralph Rebandt, II, Candidate for Michigan Governor, 2022. Date of signing, Aug. 8, 2021.
  2. Gina Johnsen, Candidate for MI House of Representatives (running against Fred Upton). Date of signing, Aug. 22, 2021
  3. Bob Scott, Candidate for Michigan Governor, 2022. Date of signing, Aug 30, 2021
  4. Ryan D. Kelley, Candidate for Michigan Governor, 2022, Date of signing, Oct. 9, 2021.

Ryan Kelley, candidate for Michigan governor, signs Contract with Michigan

Ryan D. Kelley signs the Contract with Michigan, following the candidate for governor’s presentation as featured speaker at Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME’s) monthly meeting, Oct. 9, 2021, in Stockbridge. 

Nov. 1, 2021: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced that Ryan D. Kelley, candidate for governor of Michigan 2022, has signed its Contract with Michigan. If elected, Kelley pledged to honor the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions and work to restore election integrity throughout the state. 

Kelley, PIME’s featured speaker at its October meeting, signed the pledge in the presence of attendees at the Stockbridge Activity Center. The Republican business owner who had never before sought public office explained that he felt compelled to run for governor after witnessing what appeared to be flagrant election law violations during the 2020 election.

“We need to restore election integrity, or we are going to lose our republic,” Kelley told the audience of PIME supporters. “A full forensic audit is necessary in order to find out what went right and what went wrong during the election.”  

Attendee Becky Mayer spoke enthusiastically of Kelley. “I hadn’t had the opportunity to know much about him until meeting him at a PIME meeting. He immediately had my vote when I learned of all he has been doing for election integrity since November 2020. He doesn’t just talk the talk; he walks the walk.” 

Kelley cited his personal experience with the current governor’s shutdowns as another factor prompting him to throw his hat into the ring. “She has no right to take away people’s livelihood, to shutter businesses that have taken a lifetime to build. She weaponized government bureaucracies against the people. As Michigan’s next governor, I will respect people’s rights, not violate them.”

Kelley joined a growing list of signatories to the Contract with Michigan, co-sponsored by nine grassroots organizations (below). In signing, he pledged his commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs:

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

“Teaching critical race theory in our schools is indoctrinating our children to hate themselves and their country,” Kelley said. “As President Trump stated, CRT is a ‘program for national suicide.’ We need to fight to protect our medical freedoms and privacy, build a strong economy, and keep our country strong.”

Meeting emcee Lori Zick, a member of PIME’s Executive Committee and resident of Ingham County, agreed. “Ryan Kelley seems authentic, and his policies align with my beliefs. He appears to have a lot of energy and determination to fight to return our state to one that we can be proud of. I am following Ryan Kelley on Telegram, and I am learning more about him. I like what I see.”

Kelley and his supporters are circulating nominating petitions at events spanning the state. In order to run for governor or senator of Michigan, a candidate must submit at least 15,000 valid signatures from registered voters in each of at least half of the state’s 14 congressional districts. Voters may sign only one candidate for governor’s petition. 

When asked for her assessment, Kathy McClinchey, a PIME Executive Committee member and Jackson County resident, nodded approval. “What made me a believer was when he mentioned his young kids and another on the way. He will fight hard for them to have the America we all have known and love.”

Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections started with a handful of concerned citizens in January 2021. Since then, the group has grown to around 500 supporters, located primarily in Ingham, Eaton, and Jackson counties–and all around the state. As a grassroots group committed to helping restore election integrity to Michigan elections, PIME analyzes election legislation with an eye toward closing gaps and opportunities for abuse by those who would undermine free and fair elections. The group works to achieve maximum transparency, checks and balances, ethics, and integrity in election law. PIME is a peaceful, issue-based, nonpartisan political movement that welcomes all who support election integrity and the US and Michigan Constitutions.

Ralph Rebandt II signs Contract with Michigan at of Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections meeting.

Dear PIME,

As a candidate for Governor, I would be honored to sign this contract with Michigan. 
It is spot on; on point; and on my heart. If I had drafted a document myself, it would have been in total agreement with this.

Your group understands the threats, the issues, and the solutions needed to protect our State, and to return our State to righteousness. 

Thank you to all of you who had a part in drafting this document. When you get the final version, I will wholeheartedly sign with full commitment before God to seeing it executed when I am governor of Michigan.  

All for God’s glory,

Ralph A. Rebandt, II

Gina Johnsen, signatory Sunday, Aug. 22:

Gina Johnsen holds the signed Contract with Michigan, signed in Howell, MI, on Aug. 22.

On signing the Contract with Michigan on Aug. 22, 2021, Representative candidate Gina Johnsen (left) said, “After reading this document carefully, I am pleased to sign.”

Having worked in both the healthcare and insurance industries, she added, “We need to be vigilant. We need to be smart and organized and focused. This is a spiritual battle.”

Johnsen said she is committed to God and to the cause of stopping  governmental abuse. Too often, green energy is used as a front to expand government control, she said, and fighting for the right to life and defending the elderly are two of her priorities. She would like to see more churches offer kindergarten through 6th-grade education.

Contract with Michigan – Bob Scott

Contract with Michigan

In affixing my signature below, I, __Bob Scott,___Candidate for Governor__, of Michigan_____, (Candidate) do solemnly pledge my allegiance to the United States Constitution, to the Constitution of Michigan 1963 (Constitutions), and to the State and US Bills of Rights. In seeking public office, I pledge to serve honorably as a servant to my constituents in Michigan (State). Further, to restore the bonds of trust between the people and their elected representatives, I pledge to protect and defend citizen rights and needs as delineated below:

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty 
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights 
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes. 
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

Description:

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government

Restore election integrity to Michigan elections. Establish fair and transparent elections. Ensure valid and fraud-free absentee ballots. Require photo identification, residency, citizenship, and clean voter rolls. Ensure the authenticity and chain of custody of every ballot. Prevent federal takeover of State election laws.

Defend State rights. The US Constitution and Michigan Constitution guarantee State rights to conduct elections within State boundaries. The State shall conduct all elections for all levels of government, including federal, state, county, township, and municipality.

  1. The right to free speech 

The First Amendment guarantees free speech. Government agencies must not directly or indirectly (as in collaborating with private industry or organizations) filter and stifle citizen dialogue or free speech.

While the First Amendment does not specifically apply to or govern private technology companies, the American people need their representatives to curtail large technology companies from filtering and stifling citizen dialogue and free speech.

Regulate Big Tech and social media companies like “common carrier” telecommunications services and public utilities. Require them to host user posts regardless of what the posts say, much like phone companies host all telephone calls regardless of content.

  1. The right to keep and bear arms

Defend the Second Amendment, which states, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” 

Candidate agrees to: Protect citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms. Stop the passage of new laws that make it harder for people to acquire firearms or ammunition, or that restrict/ban certain types of firearms or accessories. Oppose any effort to deprive individuals of their right to keep and bear arms without due process of law. Oppose the enactment of schemes such as firearm registration, waiting periods, and “universal background checks,” all of which undermine individual liberty as well as the security of our republic.

  1. State rights

Defend the Tenth Amendment, which expresses the principle of federalism, also known as states’ rights. This amendment states that the federal government has only those powers delegated to it by the Constitution. All other powers, not forbidden to the states by the Constitution, are reserved to each state.

Fight federal, State, and county government power grabs and protect local government authority.

  1. The right to liberty and the protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies.

Though the Fourth Amendment does not explicitly protect the privacy of forms of communication that did not exist at the time of its writing, it explicitly guarantees citizens the right “to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

Candidate agrees to: Protect the Fourth Amendment, liberty, and privacy. Stop the politicization and overreach of government agencies. Ensure the government does not abuse technology, invade citizen privacy, or conduct unreasonable searches and seizures.

  1. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and to funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic.

Support law and order. Support anti-crime packages to keep people secure in their neighborhoods and kids safe in their schools.

Enforce and uphold all constitutional protections and Sixth Amendment guarantees to make criminal prosecutions more accurate, fair, and legitimate. Stop the judicial system from weaponization against the citizenry and ensure the crimes of those in power receive justice.

Conduct legislative and administrative hearings under oath. Prosecute those who commit perjury to the fullest extent of the law.

Prevent citizens from being held as political prisoners without bail.

  1. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Ensure that schools adopt educational curricula that teaches understanding of and appreciation for this nation’s dedication to the individual’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Prohibit teaching any form of critical theory (i.e., that one group is better than another) in our schools. Fine or suspend certifications of teachers who teach any form of critical theory (racism, classism, sexism, agism, etc.). Support the Hillsdale 1776 curriculum and reject the 1619 Project. Teach the hazards of communism.

  1. The right to private property

Defend the Fifth Amendment and the right to own private property. The right to private property forms the cornerstone of freedom, individuality, independence, and right to pursue happiness.

Support free enterprise and never shut down market sectors (e.g., as occurred during the 2020-2021 pandemic and caused devastation to entire industries, including entertainment, restaurants, and gyms). Stop government overreach from determining winners and losers and making business success reliant on government support or regulation.

  1. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty 

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the US “shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion.” Acknowledge that the Chinese Communist Party and globalism represent an imminent threat and have been waging a long-term economic, political, and cultural war against the republic. Adjust trade, public, educational, scientific, and State policies to ensure the republic’s survival.

Article 1, Section 8 grants Congress the power to “provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States,” “to regulate commerce with foreign nations,” and to “define and punish offenses against the Law of Nations.” Neither the State nor US Constitutions can be upheld if their authorities are ceded to another entity. Do not cede the sovereignty of the US to an international body. No U.S. troops shall operate under U.N. command. No U.N. inspectors or troops are to be invited onto US soil.

Protect the environment and natural resources while simultaneously pursuing energy independence. Develop renewable power sources that supplement and do not undermine national security.

  1. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights

Reinforce tax and social welfare programs to encourage nuclear families. Offer tax incentives for adoption and strengthen parental rights in their children’s education. Support an elderly dependent care tax credit to reinforce the central role of families in American society.

  1. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.

Support a pro-growth tax code. Impose no new taxes. Adhere to fiscal responsibility. Stop unchecked government spending and the printing of money. This irresponsible behavior will lead to hyperinflation, wipe out the retirement savings of senior citizens, and lead to the destruction of the US dollar.

Support favorable tax policies and cut excess regulations to encourage job creation and wage enhancement. Encourage small business incentives and capital gains cuts. Eliminate the supplemental government unemployment and welfare incentives while employment opportunities are readily available. Provide financial encouragement, rather than discouragement, to potential workers to participate in the job market.

  1. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws.

The first sentence of the US Constitution declares, “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

In a time of terrorism, drug cartels, human trafficking, and criminal gangs, the presence of millions of unidentified individuals in this country and state poses grave risks to the domestic tranquility, general welfare, and security of liberty to current citizens and their posterity.

Support secure borders and all ports of entry. Uphold and enforce immigration law. Stop the US government from enabling illegal immigrants to cross into the State. Restore and maintain the essential parts of our national security funding to strengthen national defense.
