The expert

July 13, 2013

Once again the President of the United States has demonstrated his contempt and rejection of the Constitution; and, ultimately, his Oath of Office. This opportunity came as he spoke to new Congressional summer interns in D.C. about Independence Day. He seems to think that the policies of King George III, even though thought of as a tyrant by the Colonies, weren't that bad. He used the usual rich vs. poor tactic on taxes and, to me, twisted the Gospels saying the rich don't help the poor so it's up to government. "God instructs us to help our neighbors. He does not tell us to look down on them through the windows of Capitalism. Why then, on the Fourth of July, should you celebrate such a radical break from what is Godly and just?" See how certain people can take history, in this case the Founding of our Country, and make the enemy of our country seem like our friend. When asked by one of the students if we should still celebrate the Fourth of July, the President said, "I believe we should celebrate where we are going. Celebrate moving forward. not where we have been." I've always heard if you forget your history, you are bound to repeat it.
