    • Actually.........that is not a Jefferson quote....its another GOP urban legend

    • here's another recent famous presidential quote - "I did not have sex with that woman"........

    • Here is a more recent quote from the failed attempt of a Presidential candidate which is much more recent and gives the perspective of how he thought of the American people.

      "And I mean the president starts out with 48, 49 percent … he starts off with a huge number," Romney continued. "These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every four years. And so my job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the five to 10 percent in the center that are independents, that are thoughtful...."
      Of course he was wrong too but it sounded good to the fat cats he was addressing.

    • curetime - the above is a quote from Thomas Jefferson.............look it up and stop lying........

      Here's another - To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association—the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.

        No, it's not. Republicans are making a cottage industry of fake invented Jefferson quotes. That was one of them.

        "To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association—the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."

        I believe this sentence is from a Jefferson translation of a French author. So you could say it's a Jefferson quote but putting it that way is dishonest.

        I realize that today's Republicans think it's OK to propagandize by gross lying. They aren't Conservative either. You know exactly what you are doing. I'm cynical about politics, especially the Pay-To-Play system, but today's politics have changed qualitatively - the US may actually be in the process of breaking up. If you guys do go your own way, which I would welcome, what will you do when you realize that your roof and kitchen table are held up by the Blue States and Texas? But if you were gone, you would be the IMF's problem.

    • Gee, I can't understand why the Republican message "you suck" isn't selling.
