I'm reading The Politically Incorrect Guide To The Constitution. A lot of my right wing ideas are a little ill conceived, I freely admit it. I hope to learn more about that spirit, so I can be a more well informed citizen, and so I can refrain from petty arguments and bickering. I feel like I'm longing for The America I grew up in, and wondering if it will ever be the same. Some of the things I took for granted over a lifetime seem to be threatened these days. Some of the stuff Jefferson said seems completely applicable to today.
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be ... The People cannot be safe without information. When the press is free, and every man is able to read, all is safe. - Thomas Jefferson
