“We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles. The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 1824

  1. Steve, we should channel Thomas Jefferson through any one of our Fellowship members and have that person elected into office. Human nature hasn’t changed. Only their clothing, food, and toys have!

     
  2. Eowyn, I posted earlier and apologize for a possible repeat.
    Steve, we need to channel Thomas Jefferson into the body of an electable member of this Fellowship. Our elected Fellowship member can undo the “change” one law at a time.

     
  3. Thomas Jefferson is probably watching what is happening to our country, in horror! However, he probably is proud of the Americans in our country who are trying to uphold the Constitution and everything he fought for! His Declaration of Independence is so superb, as is the Preamble to it! I remember when I stood in front of his monument in Washington, D.C. I cried, and I watched the people around me cry too! (men and women both)
