One of the most dispiriting things I find about American politics is what happens when one or both houses of Congress change hands. In a perfect world, it would be a time to hit the ground running and push ambitious, well-constructed legislation that advances the party agenda and challenges the status quo.
Not that the two are mutually exclusive, but what it usually happens is stuff like this: The new Democrat chair of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight decided to leave the words “so help you God” out of the oath witnesses must take before the panel, because leaving God out of things is now apparently an agenda item.
This is what you voted for, America. This is #TheResistance in action.
The move came courtesy of Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the Democrat now heading the subcommittee. On Thursday, CNS News reported, she left “so help you God” out of the oath during a hearing Thursday.
 
Instead, witnesses were asked, “Do you swear that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?”

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
