Davie Crockett to Congress; “It’s not your money to give”

I wonder if they teach children about Davie Crockett in school these days?
Most people think of him as a folk hero, almost mythical, but he was a real person. More than a frontiersman, he was also a soldier, an officer in fact and later died in battle at the Alamo during the Texas Revolution. This was AFTER serving in Congress for many years. He was also something even more unusual, he was an honest politician. Take 10 minutes to read this story, and you’ll wonder how we ever got to where we are today, I guarantee it. And if you do, pass this story along to as many people as you can. There’s nothing to gain, except knowledge of how our country, and our congress, is supposed to work.
