During this year, you have heard such stories of President Obama leaving out the word “Creator” from the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence. I was watching a box set to the Looney Tunes one day, and an episode of Porky Pig and Uncle Sam taking a stroll through Washington D.C. came on. At the end, they recited the Preamble; however, they left out the word “Creator”.
I have looked through YouTube and cannot find it. But what I did find was Porky reciting the Pledge of allegiance and leaving out “One nation under God”. So, Porky did it first!
I chose this year not to give the two-party system the satisfaction of having my television tuned into a superfluous debate; although, I did read about them. I have friends on Facebook putting up things such as “we want our country back” and little pictures of Mitt Romney with “so-and-so likes Mitt Romney”. Change will not come until we change the idea of government, and government changes its philisophical idea of why it was created. So many bureaucrats. So much red tape. Do you actually think that one man who is a flip-flopper can change all of this?
I read the transcript of the foreign policy debate and it was so superficial, it was ridiculous! They aren’t discussing different ideas of foreign policy – only technicalities. Two issues were never brought up in the debates – and thus far, haven’t been – that I wish were:
One, is that President Obama seems to think he has the authority to assassinate American citizens. And Mitt Romney doesn’t disagree.
“Those who would sacrafice essential liberty and freedom for temporary safety, deserve neither.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Another is that the Pentagon authorized the flying of drones over U.S. soil. And since it isn’t brought up in the debates, no American thinks another thought of the matter.
“The truth is the most important value we have. If the truth does not endure – if the government murders truth – if we cannot trust the hearts of these people, then this is not the country I was born in, and it is certainly not the country that I want to die in.”
– Kevin Costner, JFK
