Ron Paul vote on House Res.131Submitted by pearl on Wed, 07/15/2009 - 14:13
I just want to put this out there and ask if anyone can explain why Dr. Paul would oppose this. The U.S. Capitol Visitor's Center is a boondoggle and, as Congress found out, it completely distorted American History. One of the glaring omissions, in fact lies, was it declared that the official motto of the U.S. is "E Pluribus Unum" The real motto of our nation is "In God We Trust". Another omission was that nowhere in this giant structure was any mention made of the Pledge of Allegiance. After this came to light, Congress actually addressed the issue and these two items are to be given prominent display as a result, being engraved in stone at the entrance.
Here's the weird part. Ron Paul voted against this! I can understand voting against he Visitor's Center, but what could he find unconstitutional about including these omissions after the fact?
I'm really upset by this and I hope someone can explain why he would oppose this declaration of truth in the otherwise banal project.
