For Immediate Release

Contact: Kenneth J. Benway Alliance for Bonded Term Limits, Inc. P.O. Box 1750 Pinehurst, North Carolina 28370 Phone: 910.949.3856 Cell 910.322.8095

Congressional Candidate Dr. Dan Eichenbaum Bonds a Limited Term in Office Challenges Congressman Heath Shuler for North Carolina District 11 Seat in 2012

Pinehurst, N.C. – September 8th, 2011 -- The Alliance for Bonded Term Limits (ABTL) is pleased to announce that Congressional candidate Dr. Dan Eichenbaum, who is challenging three-term Congressman Heath Schuler in 2012, has executed a bonded term limit pledge. He is the first candidate in the United States to do so for the 2012 election season.

A U.S. Navy veteran and practicing physician from Murphy, N.C., Dr. Eichenbaum is committed to limiting his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives to a maximum of six (6) years. And to secure this promise, he has personally and legally obligated himself in the amount of $500,000 . Should Dr. Eichenbaum break his promise of limited Congressional tenure, the beneficiary of his bond will be the Moore County Sentinels of Freedom, a non-profit charity dedicated to assisting servicemen and women who have sustained brain trauma in combat.

Dr. Eichenbaum advocates limited government, self-determination, a free-market economy, a balanced budget, and the right to keep and bear arms. He believes that personal self-interest over country and the desire for long tenure in elected office is the root cause of the irrational legislative outcomes to which we are continuously subjected. His Bonded Term Limit pledge financially underwrites the credibility of his agenda and his belief that citizen legislators should serve honorably and effectively in the best interest of America, then return home to live in their communities under the laws they helped enact.

Dr. Dan graduated from the Yale School of Medicine, Cum Laude, then served as a commissioned Naval officer during the Vietnam era. He is a 35-year practicing physician and successful small business owner. Dr. Dan has authored 14 peer-reviewed articles, lectured internationally in the field of ophthalmology, and holds six US patents. Dr. Dan and his wife, Rhonda, live on their farm in Murphy where they raised their two college-age children.

I’m glad my congresscritter didn’t do this. When we want him to go, we’ll let him know at the ballot box.

Good for him. If the RAT doesn’t sign the pledge, he looks like just another washington insider. If he argues it violates constitutional law, he isn’t American. If he signs it, he has been in 6 years so it is time to go.

No downside.

The few Dems that made this pledge to limit their terms in the past have never honored the pledge if elected. Most, not all, Republicans have honored it.

Your fella seems to have a convenient position on every thing.

They seem to be what the would be congresscritter thinks the listener wants to hear.

Sneaking in a RINO in Sam Adams’ costume is no better than sending back that club-foot quarterback.

I’ve had the opportunity to be the “fly on the wall” andlisten to him talk. Dr. Dan isn’t all he wants you to believe or at least he has me convinced he is an opportunist.

Good luck down there. Without the snakepit in the district, the repubs might win that seat back. Dr. Dan won’t cut it. Someone from Hendersonville, Spence or the District attorney Hunt.

Pro life my a@@. Pro what you want to hear..
