While Mr. Obama presided over one of the most degrading and nauseating spectacles of contemporary American life, the practice of winning sports teams paying homage to the state by having the president bestow his blessing, one man had the courage to declare himself a free individual. Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas refused to bow down at the alter of state and released the following statement: “I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.
This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT”
