    Our problem is "One Nation Out from Under God!" Our Declaration of Independence is addressed to God.The author is mistaken as there are religious symbols and quotes on our major monuments and government buildings the Supreme Court displays the engraved copy of the 10 commandments that had to be covered with a curtain during one of Obama's recent speeches. Displays like that over a governing body's activities puts a chill over them because it suggests that they too are accountable for their corrupt acts. The USA's wellspring of liberty was reliance upon the timeless truths revealed in the law and the prophets. But it is a mistake to reduce revealed truth as just dead rote law to be followed as a robot follows code. Then we grow cold and harden, consequently we reject the truth itself. The Law is the roadsigns that tell us where we are not to go. The Spirit that wrote that law and lives within us opens our eyes to the liberty of the many roads of choice available.
