While I clean up after our Easter activities, I wanted to share this with you.
"Would it not be better to simplify the system of taxation rather than to spread it over such a variety of subjects and pass through so many new hands." ~ Thomas Jefferson
I am continually amazed at how wise our Founding Fathers were. They gave us a form of government that has lasted successfully for centuries and gave us both the representation and checks and balances necessary to that success. While I (and many others) believe our government today is a far cry from what they intended, it's still the best one around.
I also wonder if we have these types of individuals in our midst today. Who do you know that you think would be comparable to our founders?
