Sir Isaac Newton's First Law states; "A body in rest stays in rest, and a body in motion stays in motion".
His laws were essential to mankind's development, but they have not been applied to U.S. politics effectively as we have observed in the last three and one-half years.
President Obama's policies have taken a country in rest and has made it worse by his ineffective application of "Hope and Change," instead providing increased tax and spending, waste in expanding government oligarchies, a stagnate ineffective and costly energy program, a trillion dollar expanding debt and trade imbalance, all of which show a "body in motion," but unfortunately in the negative direction.
Even looking at simple things like family values, the latest political faux pas was evident by the vice president premature eruption by announcing President Obama is the first president to be for same-sex marriage.
It appears that President Obama and staff should review how to apply Sir Isaac's Laws more effectively and also consider referring to the Holy Bible like old Honest Abe Lincoln often did.
