NHL Goaltender Tim Thomas Refuses White House VisitSubmitted by parade4thecheat on Mon, 01/23/2012 - 19:52
Anyone watch or care about hockey around these parts? Today the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins visited the White House without their MVP goaltender, one of just two Americans on the team in the first place, who made a statement about the state of the union:
"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.
"This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
"Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL."
Apparently he has vocally supported the Tea party in the past. Sound like a Ron Paul supporter to me!
