Words of Wisdom and Inspiration...
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on
certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when
wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and
then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere." -- Thomas Jefferson
