Now, here's a true leader in Congress....let's elect McCotter!

I have always appreciated Congressman Thaddeus McCotter's representation and candor as he served as my representive in Congress for some years now. We have disagreed on some issues, but he always has replied with the intent of helping me understand why he was voting a certain way rather than do the form letter, like the Democratic Senators I've dealt with. It is McCotter's quote under the quotation section that he writes me about.
This is a member of the government we should elect to higher office.
In peace,

As your Member of Congress and as promised, I wish to update you on an important issue: our freedom of religious expression and the importance of religious faith in our free republic's history.
On December 2, 2008, the new Capitol Visitors Center (CVC) is expected to open to the public. Unfortunately, there has been no effort on the part of the House and Senate Committees on Administration (which oversee the CVC) to include well known examples America's spiritual heritage. Consequently, as a member of the Congressional Prayer Caucus (CPC), on July 30, 2008, I co-signed a CPC letter sent to the Acting Architect of the Capitol Stephen T. Ayers regarding the curious omission of symbols of America's spiritual heritage such as "In God We Trust" from the CVC.
Ultimately, on October 2, 2008, the leadership of the House and Senate Committees on Administration agreed to ensure the phrase "In God we Trust" is prominently displayed within the CVC and recognized as our Nation's official motto. Further, these Committees have also agreed to have the Pledge of Allegiance - including the words "under God" - engraved in a prominent location inside the CVC.
As I have stated before: no good government denies God's presence. Thus, rest assured, I will continue to defend our God-given right of religious expression and oppose efforts to erase our Nation's religious heritage during the 110th Congress. Thank you for all you do for our community and our country. Should you have any further comments or questions on this or any other issue, please contact me at the Livonia or Milford district, or Washington, D.C. office.
I work for you.


Thaddeus G. McCotter
Member of Congress
