Is This What You Want to Get From Your Vote in November

I just received an email stating the platform for "conservative" candidates in November, does this resonate with you when you think about elected officials?

Balance the Budget — Congress must be forced to cut spending. SCF candidates will support a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget without raising taxes.

Repeal ObamaCare — President Obama's health care takeover is set to destroy American medicine and bankrupt our country. SCF candidates will support legislation to repeal it.

Stop Government Bailouts — Bailouts for taxpayers to reward failure and punish success. SCF candidates will stop bailouts altogether and force corporations to compete.

Ban Earmarks — Congressional earmarks are a gateway drug to higher spending. SCF candidates will ban earmarks and break Washington's addiction to pork.

Secure the Borders — The federal government has failed to enforce our nation's immigration laws. SCF candidates will seal the borders and oppose all forms of amnesty.

Defend the 2nd Amendment — The 2nd Amendment protects our ability to keep and bear arms. SCF candidates will oppose all efforts to eliminate or restrict this right.

Protect Human Life — Human life is precious and it must be protected. SCF candidates will stop all taxpayer funding for abortion.

Establish Term Limits — Our country is being destroyed by career politicians. SCF candidates will support a constitutional amendment establishing congressional term limits.

Are these principles or are they actions? There is nothing here about upholding the Commerce Clause or the 10th Amendment. Do we need more Constitution, or do we need to follow what has been written?
