Born on this day back in 1743, one of the most influential leaders in our country’s growth came into this world. This leader worked tirelessly for a limited government that served the people, who worked to ensure that each American would not be denied the pursuits of life, liberty, and property, and a leader who is no doubt rolling in his grave over the assaults to threaten the pursuits that we cherish.
Happy Birthday Thomas Jefferson!
“Man is capable of living in society, governing itself by laws self-imposed, and securing to its members the enjoyment of life, liberty, property, and peace.”–Thomas Jefferson: Declaration and Protest of Virginia, 1825
No, I am not talking about the TV commercial that features this jingle. I am talking about the next part of the Stevens Miller saga. Yes, our favorite carpetbagging candidate has just had another embarrassing mishap once again. This time, it involves a road trip to Richmond, where Miller could personally lobby against Delegate Tom Rust’s septic system bill, only to find out that Governor Tim Kaine signed the bill and used his powers to strengthen the bill.
I keep asking myself this question: Why is Miller still in this race? After all, Miller made the septic system bill the premise behind his race, and now with Governor Kaine’s support, we are left to question this even more.
