If Libertarian presidential hopeful George Phillies wins the presidency he will not take the oath of office on the Bible but on the Constitution.
"When a President takes office, he should place his hand in one place: on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights he is swearing to protect. And then, having sworn to protect our Constitution, he should do so," says Phillies.
He concludes that: "Unlike Mr. Romney and his Republican religious extremist cohorts, I will protect and defend America, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, not proselytize for one faith or another. I will protect freedom for people of all beliefs by swearing on the very document that guarantees those freedoms."
