I heard this tonight Monday-while watching my Red Wings -
Tim Thomas -Goalie for the Stanley Cup champion -Boston Bruins- refused to meet w/ bho- for Constitutional reasons-and he is one of only two US citizens on the Bruins team-
Thomas-- MAN after my own heart! and HE KNOWS THE CONSTITUTION!
quote from article-
Thomas, a Flint, Mich., native and one of only two American players on the Bruins' Stanley Cup roster last season, was the only Boston player to decline the invitation.
"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People," Thomas said in a statement.
"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," he wrote.
"Because I believe this, today (Monday) 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."
