    That was a man of immense wisdom who foresaw what we now detest in the liberals of our current era.

      He also did not like religion…that is why he seperated it from government and made his own bible, cutting out all the “miracles” which he considered hogwash.

        If, as you say, Jefferson “did not like religion,” he wouldn’t have had any copy of the Bible and wouldn’t have spent time studying it. Cutting and pasting his own version of the Bible is no different than how some people choose to live and practice only certain parts of it.

    If you’re concerned about people in our government taking care of us, you need not worry. They’re too busy taking care of themselves and the people who give them money.

    I wonder if he had that same attitude towards the slaves he “took care of?”
