We don't have a right to know everything our Government does, says congressional delegate
AdventMessenger.com | Editorial
Gone are the days of transparency and openness of our government leaders. Eleanor Holmes Norton, congressional delegate for the District of Columbia, passionately defended President Obama's right to be free from public criticism by saying that we have no right to know everything that goes on behind closed doors.
"You don't have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government," Eleanor Holmes Norton argued during a Congressional Oversight Committe hearing.
Do we want a goverment with little or no effective oversight? Do we want our govermental leaders making descisions with no accountability? Should our leaders be free from having to answer sepcific questions about their tactics, programs, or motives?
Eleanor Holmes Norton a die-hard Obama supporter doesn't even want the House Oversight Committee, the congressional committee in charge with overseeing our leaders in goverment, to be asking questions on the White Houses' business.
America is rapidly changing. Our country is rapidly becoming and image of the beast as described in Revelation 13. Would to God that our leaders would increase oversight and accountability and demand that all those who take public office do so with transperancy.
