A convenient talking point became the latest source of political fodder for President Barack Obama’s antagonists on Capitol Hill Monday. Members of Congress on Monday called on President Obama to issue a public correction after he incorrectly identified “E pluribus unum” as the official motto of the United States, supplanting the country’s real motto, “In God We Trust.”
“In the United States, our motto is ‘E pluribus unum’ — out of many, one,” he said, then compared it to the Indonesian motto, “Bhennika Tunggal Ika — unity in diversity.”
The official motto of the U.S. was established by law in 1956 as “In God We Trust.”
“By misrepresenting things as foundational as the Declaration of Independence and our national motto, you are not only doing a disservice to the people you represent you are casting aside an integral part of American society,” the representatives wrote in a letter requesting the correction. It is obvious that this scholar of America did this on purpose. He knows that we will never trust the government or socialism if God is in the picture. He is trying to remove God at every angle. This president needs to stop this rhetoric. He isn't impressing the Muslims by putting down America,Christians,Jews and God. We're not any safer under Obama since he started this tactic, so he needs to stop it.
