However, the recently elected [...]
Wake up America. We are heading head long into a brick wall and we are ignoring it.

Thomas Jefferson said, “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” The power of this statement is boundless, and its meaning is clear in its construction.
