Recently the ghost of Thomas Jefferson left me the following message and asked that I pass it on:

FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OF 2011/2012

Shame on you the leaders of America who have taken my country to the point of destruction with your modern two party one monopolistic elite establishment that robs the people of their wealth to satisfy the groups of special interest that finance and control you. Shame on you the mass media for serving as the mechanism to make this possible. And shame on you the people who have accepted this fate while being marched like sheep to the destruction of our country and your own well being.

Did I, and others, not warn you of the problems that would result from a large bureaucratic federal government, foreign escapades and entanglements, and banker control of our economy? Shame on you the American people who I envisioned to serve as a shining light by setting a good example for the rest of the world. Shame on you for instead producing, following, and taking seriously, big government spending flip flopping leaders such as Obama, Romney, Gingrich, and a Congress composed of self-serving scoundrels.

With deep sadness I have watched this process develop for many decades but I cannot remain silent any longer for if you don’t hear the bell of Liberty ringing now I fear that you will have given up America as we have known it for more than 200 years.

Therefore I appeal to the political leaders who still have a conscience to support one of the few leaders left who supports the Constitution and the rightful course for America’s recovery- RON PAUL. Many of you know better and need to decide if you will go down in history as a fellow patriot or be among those who sold out your country during one of its greatest times of need.

To those of you belonging to perhaps the most important profession responsible for preserving our great democratic Republic – journalism, I plead the case of equal coverage and time for the one true patriot in your current presidential race – Ron Paul. Many of the “debates” that I have seen resemble the promotion of certain candidates over others in a dictatorship.

To the people I plead to awaken before endless wars, bankruptcy, and Great Depression result in bitterness, anger, frustration, and violence against one another, which will destroy you into a 3rd world banana republic heavily equipped in arms but left with no spirit, no civil rights, and massive poverty from which it will be very difficult to recover. The final bell rings for preserving your Liberty by uniting under presidential candidate Ron Paul.

I appeal to the American people to unite under Ron Paul so that recovery can begin now, as maintaining the present course will no doubt lead to catastrophe and disaster within the next four years.

Yours in Liberty,
Thomas Jefferson

If Thomas Jefferson is rooting for candidate Ron Paul, then I will vote that way. He's much more reliable and astute to the issues of the day than his GOP compatriots. The Republican Party should get behind the man.

Hey, Jefferson:
It's not your country anymore, b!tch!
I'm a black woman, and I have all the rights a white male has. If you weren't already dead, I'm sure that would kill you.
And, stupid, Ru Paul has a better chance of becoming president than Ron Paul does.
Kiss my black backside!

They won't. And to understand, you have to realize Paul is a libertarian running as repub because there is no third party. If you support Paul, you really are not repub.

Repubs don't agree with his views on legalizing drugs, abortion, prostitution, and many other Federal laws.

Even though repubs claim to want non-intrusive Gov, they mean that only for business. They do want the gov involved in personal choice decisions like drugs, abortion, marriage, and many other moral plays.

If you listen to Paul, he is against all Fed involvement in our personal choices.

The day repubs get behind a man that says the Feds should not prevent us from smoking weed, is the day repubs give up on Fed involvement in abortion laws.

Won't happen.
