Time to get back to our roots and to me that starts with dropping “In God We Trust“ and returning to “e pluribus unum” (Out of Many, One) as our official motto.
It was adopted by an Act of Congress in 1782, although not as an official motto but what came to be considered, de facto, the basic statement of the USA. It is on the official Seal of the United States.
“In God We Trust,” in this era of the Religious Right separating itself from any compromise position with the center or the left, is meaningless. What do we trust in God for? That He would allow one side to corrupt the country in His name? If we don’t get back to unifying the many, we will no longer have control of the basics of daily life.
