This is a discussion on The whole enchilada within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I've often seen the abbreviated version of this quote from Thomas Jefferson, but this is the first time I have seen the whole thing in ...

Thomas Jefferson...... The Declaration of Independence

Interesting to note is the fact that Mr. Jefferson founded a political party that remains one of the two main parties in the US. That party is known as the Democrat Party. I wish that the party leadership and members of today were still closely guided by the wisdom of their founder.
I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.
