While our nation sets a new record debt every day, while Americans kill and are killed in Iraq, while New Orleans still stands littered with debris from Hurricane Katrina, while Americans go bankrupt because they can’t afford medical care, Virgil Goode and 88 other members of the House of Representatives are getting busy. Unfortunately, they’re not getting busy solving these problems. They’re getting busy using the machinery of government to impose religious mandates.Fellow North Carolinians Walter Jones and Sue Myrick join 85 other Republicans in wasting our time and violating the Constitution.
These members of Congress have not only missed their lessons about the Constitution, which prohibits the use of government to establish religion. They’ve also wasted their time solving non-existent problems with coin edges and missed a chance to address actual problems facing the nation.Aren't you glad they're saving us from the terror of having our national motto appear on the edge of a coin, instead of the face? I feel like all those other problems will just fade away now that we've got the coin thing settled.
