Mr. Jefferson, resistance is alive..

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.” Th. Jefferson

Upon these words, Mr. Jefferson, the spirit of resistance has from time to time arisen within the souls  of citizens, keeping such resistance alive. It is the points in history when citizens felt resistance too harsh or too laborious to contend with that we have developed ourselves a despotic government.

Citizens have revived resistance against the government as a great form by which we may restore what we have found taken due to un – attentiveness. Perhaps should former generations not found attentiveness as being too laborious the occasion of resistance today would not be decided.

I pose the question of how resistance can successfully and constructively transform into the restoration of government to its foundation? I say, sir, the citizens are indeed filled to their capacity of taxation and mandates, making it quite impossible for them to live in freedom or enjoy any liberties. May I tell you, freedoms and liberties have been whittled away from the people,so boldly that some legislators have gone so far as to call the Constitution a document too old, too outdated or not worthy of upholding. Do you not see the situation here?

The spirit of resistance whether it has slept quietly for years or ignored for reasons of complacency, is quite alive today. It is from resistance to restoration that we must not just consider but exercise.

I bid you well, my friend, should I wish you rest in peace, I know that you shall not for your I know your spirit stirs un-restful and there is thanks given to you for such consideration.

Yours in Liberty,

A Jeffersonian.
