He'd simply say this:

"You bunch of selfish, money grubbing assholes are all gonna get what you deserve. Don't blame me or my pals, we did everything we could for you, but you chose to dedicate your lives to sports, NASCAR, fishing, booze, broards and any other useless pastimes rather than working to ensure your personal liberty for you and your children forever and forever. Have fun in Hell you reprobates!"

You know, I think you are right. He is probably spinning in his grave.

Is this the same Thomas Jefferson who never once shouldered a musket in the struggle for independence?

Or maybe it's the same Jefferson that supposedly wasn't on the same page as everyone else when it came to god and country and yet HE STILL went along with it all.

That's says alot about his character to me.

anyone see that Family Guy with the statue of Jefferson, and his 15 black kids?

all the founding fathers and framers of the Constitution are undoubtedly pissed off right now at what America has become

None of your congressmen are shouldering arms in the war on terror. I guess they're all just weak-kneed pansies.

The later part of that stament is true. But I'm not sure it's connected to the first part.
