Happy birthday, Mr. Jefferson

Happy 274th birthday to Thomas Jefferson. I’m sure it would sadden you, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, James Madison and the other founding fathers to see what the nation you founded has become. The people have become complacent and have elected ignorant fools to represent and govern them. Not only have the people ignored your warnings, they have embraced those very things you warned them against. In their ignorance, they believe that the erasure of the principles and the vision this country was founded upon will somehow make this country great. Nothing could be further from the truth. The ignorance and fear that dominates our politics and our culture will be our downfall, the end of our experiment with democracy, and will likely usher in a new age of tyranny and despotism. If you thought King George was bad, King Donald and his court will be much worse.
