Oaths and pledges must mean something

Just so I am clear, when a person makes a promise or takes an oath or pledge, it means nothing anymore?

All the Republican candidates pledged to support the winning candidate. I guess that pledge meant any candidate but Donald Trump.

And the members of the Electoral College take an oath to support the wishes of the majority of voters. Nowhere does it say that they can or should vote their conscious if they don’t like the voter-elected candidate. Even though they will be assessed fines, some say they will not vote for Mr. Trump.

How is anyone to be believed or trusted in the future? How can there be any meaning at all to promises made or oaths and pledges given?
