Community Weblog - [ Thomas Jefferson From Eliza's Site ]

Thomas Jefferson From Eliza's Site

Who was it that said - those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it?  We were even more excited to have Eliza here after we found this gem on her website.    It's really quite startling to see how the government has come full circle...

"A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their
spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt....If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake."
- written by Thomas Jefferson in response to the Sedition Act of 1798.

How can you go wrong with an artist that quotes Thomas Jefferson on her website?
