Tomorrow is Thomas Jefferson’s birthday celebrated in the United States here and I was surprised to see that nobody wrote about it on WordPress when I searched on the reader.

I have one of his books and found it from in an antique store years ago.

He wrote several books and was a very good writer. This one is in public domain and I found it on Google Books, the cold Google Play Books.

You can read some of his inaugural addresses on here and you can find them in the table of contents. I thought if I’m the only one on WordPress to write about him and to remember the day then so be it. If you’re in school learning history this is exceptional.

Always look on other Google Play Books or LibriVox audiobooks before you buy one! Chances are you can find them on one or the other for a greatly reduced price because it’s an ebook.

As you’ll see even though he lived in the 1700’s, the truth still resonates in his words today, even more so to me. I wish he was president today because he would have listened to the voice of the American people, who are in essence America. He would have adhered to the Constitution the United States of America I’m not taking prepaid vacations all over the world like the president we have today.

He helped shape Freedom as we know it today in the United States of America by being the author of the Declaration of Independence. He helped define Freedom as we know it, as well as all of the military people throughout the years who have made sacrifices and died for it.

I hope and pray our next leader does a better job than what’s in there now.

  1. It isn’t so much the Constitution that I have found protects individual liberties, but the Declaration of Independence, and where this “Spirit of Resistance” is found. The Constitution to me is merely about the structure of government and there is little spirit there. Except as it relates to the preamble, where it states: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Let this spirit reign.
