Thomas Jefferson

<< < (2/2)

Michael Bush:
"Without Thomas Jefferson and his Declaration of Independence, there would have been no American revolution that announced universal principles of liberty. Without his participation by the side of the unforgettable Marquis de Lafayette, there would have been no French proclamation of The Rights of Man. Without his brilliant negotiation of the Louisiana treaty, there would be no United States of America. Without Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, there would have been no Virginia Statute on Religious Freedom, and no basis for the most precious clause of our most prized element of our imperishable Bill of Rights - the First Amendment to the United States Constitution."--Christopher Hitchens

Haha!  Reagan was always full of old age jokes!   :cheesy:

He's one of our most interesting founders.  Let's hope he is not erased as so many have been!
