Tis ironic that the far right has been citing Jefferson and making noises for years but now all that patriotic stuff about Petitions, Redress, and protests best describe:
- those who marched the day after the inauguaration all around the US and beyond on behalf of women
- all those lawyers and others who showed up at airports to protest the Muslim ban
- all those who have attended town halls and confronted their representatives with righteous indignation
- all those who have called their Representatives and Senators to register their opposistion to Ryancare/Trumpcare/Wealthcare
So, on this Fourth of July, I take inspiration from those who fought an Empire with a little help (ok, lots of help) from some friends.
