Thomas Jefferson on Freedom

We’re not interested in government fixes, we’re interested in freedom.

Thomas Jefferson

My fellow Americans —

This Palin woman stimulates me on multiple levels. She’s absolutely right in what she says. Let’s go back to first principles. We founded this country as “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” not as a goddamn hippie commune for pussies.

I believe in America and I believe in Americans. I believe that the majority of Americans — not as one-sided a majority as there was in my day but a majority nonetheless — do not want to be condescended to, do not want to be talked down to, but rather just want to be left alone to succeed or fail on their own merits.

Yours eternally in freedom,

Tom
