Jefferson vs. Lincoln: Who is your hero?

This is a great reminder of the original intent of the Founders of our Country. It promised the world the safest and most secure form of liberty at the least expense of resources and bloodshed, but I believe it has failed.

Getting back to basics is a way to step ahead. After all, it is hard to rid the world of that which is self-evident and resonates in the heart of every lover of freedom. Lincoln's way has proven to fail and the corruption is so vast today that the world waits to see if it can be stopped.

July 4 is a good day to make a political resolution to do something different this year. If we don't change, how can we expect to reap something different than what we have?

Perhaps the best evidence of how American history was rewritten, Soviet
style, in the post-1865 era is the fact that most Americans seem to
be unaware that "Independence Day" was originally intended
to be a celebration of the colonists’ secession from the British
empire. Indeed, the word secession is not even a part of the vocabulary
of most Americans, who more often than not confuse it with "succession."
The Revolutionary War was America’s first war of secession.
"If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve
this Union or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed
as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated
where reason is left to combat it." (In sharp contrast, in
his first inaugural address, Lincoln promised an "invasion"
with massive "bloodshed" (his words) of any state that
failed to collect the newly-doubled federal tariff rate by seceding
from the union
