Punisher & Sufferer…

“War is as much a punishment to the punisher as it is to the sufferer.”

Thomas Jefferson (1743 to 1826)

Thomas Jefferson was a draftsman of the Declaration of Independence of the United States and the nation’s first secretary of state (1789-94) and second vice president (1797-1801) and, as the third president (1801-09), the statesman responsible for the Louisiana Purchase.

An early advocate of total separation of church and state, he was also the founder and architect of the University of Virginia and the most eloquent American proponent of individual freedom as the core meaning of the American Revolution.
