Thomas Jefferson by RafkinsWarning Thomas Jefferson by RafkinsWarning
Well, on the 4th of July this year I submitted a Christmas themed wallpaper... so now, two days after Christmas, I am submitting an Independence Day wallpaper, yes I know I am all backwards!

Anyway... this wallpaper is of Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence.

Declaration of Independence from: :iconslevin28:

Thomas Jefferson portrait and signature searched online.

Made in Photoshop CS3.

Naw, not so backward, I don't think. My belief is that Independence Day and Christmas are about the same thing: Freedom :)

Yes, Jefferson was a badass!

Hmm... that is an interesting list of favorite presidents.

It seems to contradict in principle though.

Jefferson also said:

"I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive."
-Thomas Jefferson

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
-Thomas Jefferson

"Most bad government has grown out of too much government."
-Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson would have opposed FDR's socialist plans of redistribution of wealth.
