Move the monument

Here's what should happen regarding the Ten Commandments monument controversy:

• Since this country was built on the premise of “majority rules,” the ACLU shouldn't use the U.S. Constitution to make decisions on local matters.

• Some church or other religious group should step in when these outsiders raise a stink about a monument on public property.

It should move to a location across from the public property and face toward the entrance or exit.

Then make the lettering large enough to read without the use of binoculars.

We, the silent majority, have been silent too long.
