Thread Name: BS: Election of the US President
Subject: RE: BS: Election of the US President
Jefferson was no saint and he had some awareness of how he fell short of his ideals...

and many of his failings were nothing to be proud of....

but he did have a number of good ideas and those are the ones that I try to support.

his shortcomings do not diminish his accomplishments, only puts them in a perspective that acknowledges that human beings are not even close to perfect, but we should take the best and try to move forward from there.
