Obama’s Opinion I Agree With
As I talk to people across the state, the conversation is clear in Conservative circles. Nebraska is campaigning on who can’t stand Obama (especially Obamacare) more. As conservatives, we are upset with many of the policies (understatement) the Democrats have enacted.
We must continue to stand up for a way of life that moves away from government control and returns the freedoms and liberties given to us by our creator and constitution. However, I know in this era of political gridlock we need to find something we agree on.
I dug hard to find something I agree with the President on, but I found it. I thought it was worth mentioning as I believe the future Congressional delegations must find common ground to work together. Let me be the first candidate in the Conservative circles to say I agree with the President on one of his statements.
This quote is from his speech in 2006. I agree with him 100% on this specific statement.
Obama – USA Today – 07/10/2006 –
“Secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering the public square. Frederick Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan (Great Nebraskan), Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King – indeed, the majority of great reformers in American history – were not only motivated by faith, but repeatedly used religious language to argue for their cause……So to say that men and women should not inject their ‘personal morality’ into public policy debates is a practical absurdity.”
“Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition.”
Many people (including conservative circles) will argue our law was not founded on Judeo-Christian principles. The President and I agree that much of it is.
Finally, the question is not if the law involves statements of morality. The question is which form of morality is a public servant fighting for to be law?
Todd Watson for U.S. Senate believes good law starts with a foundation grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition. I agree with the President on this statement from 2006.
