A patriot suggests Ron Paul be on hand for Q&A during Obama school speechSubmitted by northstar on Fri, 09/04/2009 - 01:39
The U.S. Constitution calls on the government to “promote the general welfare” and “provide for the common defense,” not beam his thoughts into public schools, Shannon said.
“There’s no place where it says he should feel he has the right to address our children,” Shannon said.
Halliburton suggested a local politician, such as U.S. Rep Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, be on hand to watch the speech and answer questions to balance out any one-sided views.
“It would be a bad thing if he (Obama) talked about how big government is a good thing, or how the government can do things for us,” Halliburton said. “I think kids should be taught they can do more things for themselves.”
