    Now if only we can get the rest of the country to get this self-evident fact.

    If only Jefferson had stuck to separation of church and state and civil liberty and not become the patron saint of all teabaggers throughout US history with his anti and small government paranoia and call for individual self-reliance (especially laughable given that he inherited his wealth, spent himself into massive debt and depending upon slaves for support).

    Sorry for the aside, but today's anti-government zombies can trace their ideological roots back to the likes of Jefferson.
