The Constitution is still the law of our land in spite of all the power-hungry mongrels in Washington that insist that it is a "flawed" document that has not lived its time.

Let me say, clearly and truthfully, I am not against any particular race of people. As a Christian, I believe that almighty God created us all as equals. However, its clear to me that many Americans have bought into the lie that every time there is a conflict of opinions between people of different color or origin, it has to be a clear cut case of racial prejudice.

This is a ploy of our government to promote strife. I don't care what color or gender our president or Congress people are as long as their policies are fair and sound.

When we have a Congress that labels American people as bigots because they exercise their God-given right to dissent in justice, and a spineless president who bows and grovels at the feet of our enemies and contemptuously snubs our friends (Israel), it's time for a complete house cleaning.

I love my country with all the shortfalls, but it's time we put our creator back into Washington and start making some sense of this mess.
