The Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson, Michael Hardt (Introduction), Garnet Kindervater

5 of 5 stars  *****

One of the strongest, enduring documents ever conceived and written. Thomas Jefferson is the master penman to put, in writing, the declarations of the American colonists to free themselves from tyranny and take advantage of the American spirit to forge a better nation based on the thoughts and ideas of many great men and societies throughout history. The awareness of God as the only true king and men as flawed beings inspire Jefferson and his peers to nurture a society based on Judao-Christian morals but not ruled by any one religion or any branch of government. Freedom and liberty as unalienable rights from God became the basis for the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.
