Our greatest president.

If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he'd be less popular with the Obama Democrats than is Ted Cruz. But he was among the most intellectual, if not the most intellectual, of the Founding Fathers, and the biggest proponent of the individual rights that our country was founded to guarantee, cherish, and protect, the very rights that are under attack by today's liberals.

That I could rate this with innumerable stars beyond a measure of times. We hold this truth to be self evident. One example of such moral law is larceny. When an individual participates in a theft, it is identified as a criminal act. When an immoral occupying statist theocracy participates in theft (funny money, income / property / insurance taxes, etc.) it is identified as a collective morality. Such is absurd to the max ! ! !

From George Washington to Obama, the best to the worst. We are in one hell of a mess.

J Carlton, Calgary

Jefferson and Obama may eventually have something in American Revolution in their life times. Hats off to TJ.
