Chuck Norris is a true patriot. He believes that our national motto, "In God We Trust" should remain front and center in our lives.

As Norris explains,

"Since the U.S. Congress passed Resolution 13* with an overwhelming 396/9 vote in November, 2011, reaffirming our national motto and encouraging its public display, elected leaders and citizens have taken action to display "In God We Trust" in government buildings, courtrooms, schools and businesses."

For background purposes, the motto was added to our money in the early 1860s, at the request of the Secretary of the Treasury, Salmon P. Chase. In his letter to James Pollock, Director of the Mint at Philadelphia, Chase said this;

"No nation can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense. The trust of our people in God should be declared on our national coins" (11-20-1861).

Norris is undertaking, via his Facebook page, the Million Window Campaign. The campaign is an effort to encourage Americans everywhere to display their support for our national motto via a window sticker emblazoned with, "In God We Trust." Norris' goal is to sell 1-Million stickers, then upload photos of the stickers from all over the United States to social media sites, "so there will be no mistake about the huge number of people in America who trust in God and who are bold to say so!"
