Thomas Jefferson - The Mind of the American Revolution

Patrick Henry was the voice, George Washington was the sword, and Thomas Jefferson was the pen of the American Revolution. Jefferson’s pen is “a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of reappearing tyranny and oppression” – hence, little minds – Goliath wannabes – must discard the American Revolution’s pen, that coercive power might rule over reason and persuasion.

Little minds sought to destroy Jefferson with untruths, e.g. that the man and his exalted words were not integrated, that he was a man of contradictions. Their success emboldens them to write him off. The Mind of the American Revolution must be eradicated in order to rule the American mind.

Honest citizens seek the truth. The truth is what corresponds to reality.

The Goliath wannabes are ready for truth seekers. The Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia website states: “As historian David Brion Davis noted, if Jefferson had died in 1785, he would be remembered as an antislavery hero, as "one of the first statesmen anywhere to advocate concrete measures for eradicating slavery." After that time, however, there came a "thundering silence." Jefferson made no public statements on American slavery nor did he take any significant public action to change the course of his state or his nation.” This is a MALEVOLENT LIE.

In 1807, President Thomas Jefferson signed a bill abolishing the slave trade: on March 3, 1807, as President of the USA, Thomas Jefferson signed a bill making slave importation illegal in the United States.

Slavery was obtruded on the Colonies by King George III. Jefferson inherited slaves - it was against the law to free them. When it was permitted for the self-supporting, freed slaves must leave the State within a year. Other facts:
1769: Chosen for the first time to be a member of a legislature, Thomas Jefferson made one effort in the House of Burgesses for the permission of the emancipation of slaves, but was rejected.

1770: As a lawyer, Thomas Jefferson defended a slave, saying: under the law of nature, “we are all born free.”

1776: He strongly condemned slavery in his draft of the Declaration of Independence.

1778: The legislature passed a bill he proposed to ban further importation of slaves into Virginia.

1784: His draft of what became the Northwest Ordinance stipulated that "there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude" in any of the new states admitted to the Union from the Northwest Territory.

1806: President Jefferson requested Congress to ban all slave importation to the US.

1807: As President, Jefferson signed a bill abolishing the slave trade: on March 3, 1807, as President of the USA, Thomas Jefferson signed a bill making slave importation illegal in the United States.
Thomas Jefferson: author of the Declaration of Independence, the Father of religious freedom (Virginia is the first society on Earth to have religious freedom), the advocate of the Bill of Rights, and the President who abolished the slave trade: “the business or process of procuring, transporting, and selling slaves, esp. black Africans to the New World prior to the mid-19th century.”

Jefferson had written in his Declaration of Independence draft: "He (King George III) has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation hither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of INFIDEL powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he also obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed against the LIBERTIES of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the LIVES of another."

Jefferson successfully abolished primogeniture in Virginia, the rule by which the first born son inherited all the land. Jefferson fought against the establishment of the Bank of the United States, a government bank. Since government is force, a government bank is as evil as government religion. This is Jefferson's Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank: "It would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and, as they would be the sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please."

Jefferson was certainly for capitalism: the separation of state and economics:
"[The] pillars of our prosperity are the most thriving when left most free to individual enterprise."

"The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits."

"To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association--the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."

"Were we directed from Washington when to sow, and when to reap, we should soon want bread."

"A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

"Were [a right] to be refused, or to be so shackled by REGULATIONS, not necessary for... peace and safety... as to render its use impracticable,... it would then be an injury, of which we should be entitled to demand redress."
Jefferson was an absolutist on reason and rights:
"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
On immigration, Jefferson stated, “I hold the right of expatriation to be inherent in every man by the laws of nature, and incapable of being rightfully taken from him even by the united will of every other person in the nation. If the laws have provided no particular mode by which the right of expatriation may be exercised, the individual may do it by any effectual and unequivocal act or declaration.”

Jefferson reduced the national debt from $83 million to $57 million while abolishing ALL excise taxes including the whiskey tax in the first year of his presidency, and then spending $15 million to double the then size of the USA.

The ONLY proper function of law and of government is enshrined in the Declaration of Independence: to secure rights. In the Louisiana Purchase and in the Barbary War, Jefferson performed the ONLY proper function of government.

Aside from the aforementioned, theocracy warriors try to obliterate Jefferson because of this stumbling block: On New Year's Day in 1802, he wrote: "...Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a WALL OF SEPARATION between Church & State..."

To cut Thomas Jefferson from America is to cut REASON, TRUTH, and EQUAL INHERENT INALIENABLE RIGHTS. Republicans like those on the Texas Board of Education are THEOCRACY WARRIORS. They are TRAITORS to the American Revolution. This is the Jeremiah Wright moment of a Republican: are you with the American Revolutionaries or are you paving the way back to the Dark Ages?

Other Dark Ages warriors and Goliath wannabes often quote Jefferson. But they betray themselves as Trojan horses when they ask, “Who are you: Libertarian, Progressive, Liberal, or Conservative?” – Like the Texas Board of Education, they exclude JEFFERSONIAN. They out themselves when they sponsor a candidate of the Conservative Party, the party which Ayn Rand described as “not an American political party, but a religious party – A PHENOMENON FORBIDDEN BY THE CONSTITUTION.” The party, not endorsed by ACORN, but backed by these:
Pope Benedict XVI’s Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth - 2009) and Pope Paul’s Populorum Progressio (On the Development of Peoples - 1967) -- These encyclicals blame the PROFIT motive for all the world’s problems, and call for a worldwide REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH by a world government as the solution. Ayn Rand further said: Pope Paul’s Populorum Progressio declares that capitalism is worse than Marxism and that the only morality is altruism (self-sacrifice).
Ayn Rand’s most admired Founder is Thomas Jefferson. She worshipped, "If it is ever proper for men to kneel, we should kneel when we read the Declaration of Independence… probably the greatest document in human history, both philosophically and literarily."

Abraham Lincoln extolled: "THE PRINCIPLES OF JEFFERSON ARE THE DEFINITIONS AND AXIOMS OF FREE SOCIETY… ALL HONOR TO JEFFERSON - to the man, who in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and sagacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so embalm it there that to-day and in all coming days it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of reappearing tyranny and oppression.”

"Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light,” declared George Washington. "Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppression of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day," proclaimed Thomas Jefferson. He also avowed, “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

I am doing my very best to reach the mind of every honest man. I revere the American Revolutionaries and their legacy: FREEDOM. I am a Jeffersonian.

"I think all the world would gain by setting commerce at perfect liberty."

-- Thomas Jefferson, July 7, 1785

It should be our endeavor to cultivate the peace and friendship of every nation.... Our interest will be to throw open the doors of commerce, and to knock off all its shackles, giving perfect freedom to all persons for the vent to whatever they may choose to bring into our ports, and asking the same in theirs.

Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 22, 1787

Ilyn Ross said...

"In matters of principle, stand like a rock.... The principles on which we engaged, of which the charter of our independence is the record, were sanctioned by the laws of our being… Man [is] a rational animal, endowed by nature with rights… A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature…” -- Thomas Jefferson

"Under the law of nature, all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the Author of nature, because necessary for his own sustenance." -- Thomas Jefferson: Legal Argument defending a slave, 1770. FE 1:376

Ilyn Ross said...

From Jefferson's autobiography: http://www.constitution.org/tj/jeff01.txt -

"In 1769, I became a member of the legislature by the choice of the county in which I live, and so continued until it was closed by the Revolution. I made one effort in that body for the permission of
the emancipation of slaves, which was rejected: and indeed, during the regal government, nothing liberal could expect success."

In 2008, DARK-AGES WARRIORS scored a victory when Barack Obama's opponent, a speech infringer, anti-gun, anti-capitalism, whose hero is dedicated Antitrust enforcer Theodore Roosevelt, the first POTUS to endorse the income tax and the inheritance tax who also endorsed socialized medicine, chose a gravitas-free puppet of THEOCRACY WARRIORS as running mate.

DARK-AGES WARRIORS remain popular:

1. Jim DeMint, Conservative of the Year 2010, evidently the Conservatives' 2012 presidential bet, is described by Wikipedia as a consistent supporter of school prayer. DeMint advocates STATE-MANDATED RELIGIOUS INDOCTRINATION.

2. Sarah Palin, the darling of many Conservatives, is against the wall of separation between church and state.

3. Montana GOP want homosexuality declared illegal.

4. Colorado's Conservatives endorse Amendment 62 which regards the BIRTH CONTROL PILL AS MURDER.

5. Allen West, another favorite of Conservatives, holds abortion and PROCREATION as national security issues. Imagine a PATRIOT ACT on PROCREATION!

6. Conservatives on the Texas Education Board want Thomas Jefferson deleted from history.

The Thomas Jefferson fb page, where the admin is named Frank, is anti separation of church and state. My first experience of this tactic is with the Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia website, which malevolently lies about Jefferson.

The ANTI FREEDOM, like Frank, infiltrate from within. In his recent push for theocracy, Frank posted a theocratic quote, and when I asked him if he is anti separation of church and state, he included in his answer a shameless lie about the UVA.

This is the truth:

"The UVA is the 1st educational institution to offer astronomy, botany, & philosophy. Its School of Engineering & Applied Science was the 1st engineering school in the US to be part of a comprehensive university. In the UVA, Jefferson implemented his vision that education shd be completely separate from religious doctrine.

"An even more controversial direction was taken for the new university based on a daring vision that higher education should be completely separated from religious doctrine. One of the largest construction projects in North America up to that time, the new Grounds were centered upon a library (then housed in the Rotunda) rather than a church—further distinguishing it from peer universities of the United States, most of which were still primarily functioning as seminaries for one particular religion or another.[14] Jefferson even went so far as to ban the teaching of Theology altogether. In a letter to Thomas Cooper in October 1814, Jefferson stated, "a professorship of theology should have no place in our institution" and, true to form, the University has never had a Divinity school or department; it was established independent of any religious sect. Replacing the then-standard specialization in Religion, the University undertook groundbreaking specializations in scientific subjects such as Astronomy and Botany. (However, today UVA does maintain a strong Religious Studies department and a non-denominational chapel, notably absent from Jefferson's original plans, was constructed in 1890 near the Rotunda.)"
