Reread for the first time since High School Government class (25 years). It is a great reminder of what The People's rights are and as it says in the 10th Amendment, "The powers NOT delegated (specifically) to the United States by the Constitution (such as creating Czars over industry or bailing out banks), nor prohibited by it to the states, ARE RESERVED TO THE STATES RESPECTIVELY OR TO THE PEOPLE." The Constitution is NOT out of date, those who claim it is (Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton et al [...more

Always on the currently reading shelf.

Great little reference book. Everyone should have a copy and read it often. Everyone could then be reminded that the freedoms we have had to be taken back at gun point and written down so no one would forget or misinterpret that we can say what we want, pray what we want, and own any kind of damn gun we want! Too bad more people don't fight for these freedoms today. Soon enough we may find ourselves in a place where we again have to take our natural freedoms back from the idiots we elected to pr...more

Beautiful writing from Thomas Jefferson, as usual. I am studying Lockeian ideas of innate human rights and how they may clash or combine with shamanic belief systems around the world as the 21st century begins to see a revitalization of these ancient cultures, most notably Finnish, Norse, and Egyptian; this is a good compendium of Locke's ideas processed through the sensibilities of Thomas Jefferson.

It is a classic that is still subject to modern day interp. It means something different to everyone. It comes in handy from time to time, but sometimes it just doesn't do enough. This is an American classic. When it was written it was revolutionary! It was and remains to be a controversial text.

Simply put: this should be required reading for every American. While they're supposedly covered in school, surveys show that most Americans are appallingly ignorant of the content and intent of these documents. There's no excuse.

The founders of our nation did an incredible job and I suspect the naysayers were just as prevalent as they are today.
Check out my audio at itunes,amazon, napster "Those Self Evident Truths."

I think more people need to actually read this and have it discussed and interpreted.

I read this so I could know what politicians in Washington don't seem to know.

Nice clean reference. Weird disclaimer on copyright page.

This goes hand in hand with The Federalist Papers.

More than a mere renaissance man, Jefferson may actually have been a new kind of man. He was fluent in five languages and able to read two others. He wrote, over the course of his life, over sixteen thousand letters. He was acquainted with nearly every influential person in America, and a great many in Europe as well. He was a lawyer, agronomist, musician, scientist, philosopher, author, architect...more
