    Really Justin, Exactly What Would It Have Hurt You?

    There's some interesting company in this end of day non-binding vote.  muslim Rep. Ellison voted Obama, err, "Present" ...and all Michigan Democrats voted Yea?  Amazing.

    Amash, R-Cascade Township, was one of nine U.S. House members - and the only Republican - to vote against a non-binding resolution that affirmed "In God We Trust" as the national motto. The resolution passed on a 396-9 vote with two abstentions.

    "Displaying "In God We Trust" on public property is appropriate in some circumstances," Amash explained on his Facebook Page. "There is no need to push for the phrase to be on all federal, state, and local buildings."

    "The fear that unless "In God... We Trust" is displayed throughout the government, Americans will somehow lose their faith in God, is a dim view of the profound religious convictions many citizens have," said Amash, a first-term freshman.

    "The faith that inspired many of the Founders of this country--the faith I practice--is stronger than that," Amash wrote. "Trying to score political points with unnecessary resolutions should not be Congress's priority."

    Feh.  Grow a pair, kid.

     ... who is willing to put principle before popularity. The more I read about Mr. Amash the better I like him. Everyone else jumps at the first chance to pander to the mob. Too bad there isn't somebody like that in the presidential pageant.

    If one likes being mocked by the wealth redistributing Marxist Left.

    A wise man once wrote:

    "Stalin followed the position adopted by Lenin that religion was an opiate that needed to be removed in order to construct the ideal communist society."

    Yep.  That is the meat and potatoes of the issue.  Only an obstinate fool would ignore history.

    About these things, but I tend to think it wouldn't have violated any version of what we consider to be the faith of the founders.

    In fact, faith was quite strong and a declaration that we have placed our trust in God to guide decision makers and our country's path would not be out of the question.  I believe our nation's makers would aspire to have such a statement readily seen.

    Justin can be wrong sometimes too.
