Dear President Obama ...

APRIL 4, 2010 --

Is our founding legacy still relevant?

The reason I ask is, you called for “change” during your remarkable presidential campaign – but now I am not sure if you wanted us to change in the direction of our founding legacy – or away from it?

Our founding legacy, I believe, emphasizes freedom, democracy, equality, justice
for all. Today, I see officials imposing rules for most of us, and special treatment for a few.

And so I ask, respectfully, is our founding legacy still relevant. Follow-up questions:
Does our founding legacy guide you; if so, how?
