Capitol Visitor Center Mangles Constitution, Historical Perspective

CitizenLink's latest Turn Signal video highlights the new U.S. Capitol Visitor Center (the one which will save Senator Harry Reid's delicate nostrils) and some important areas in which the $621 million taxpayer-funded facility is deficient.

For instance, builders got the national motto wrong. They engraved "E Pluribus Unum" in marble, when it should have been "In God We Trust."

The Pledge of Allegiance was also given the cold shoulder (too--gasp!--Christian for some?).

The center also refers to the "delegated powers" in the Constitution as "aspirations." This liberal distortion of the Constitution implies that rather than a document of enumerated powers and limited government, it is one where congress seeks to empower government to the fullest extent possible--limited only by our "aspirations."

Taxpayer-funded historical revisionism at it's liberal best!

The multimillion-dollar center has opened -- with glaring omissions and an interpretation of the Constitution many find troubling.
