“Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them.” –Thomas JeffersonTechnorati Tags: tame, humanity, Thomas Jefferson, heredity

could it be said that Thomas Jefferson was a profit? Or am I misunderstanding his meaning? This in my view is exactly what is happening here and now with this nation, under this current administration.
It is certainly amazing the insight that our forefathers had into human nature.
