The birth of our nation was occasioned by a gathering of eagles.

 
And none more glorious than Thomas Jefferson.
 
He had good company – Washington, Adams, Franklin…
 
But if the birth of the American Republic rested on the brilliance of any one mind, it was that of Jefferson.
 
This is a note in which I have included a few choice quotes from The Thomas to remind and encourage one and all to vote this Tuesday. It is a precious right, enjoy it.
