Joe’s Take

It was with those words, written by a 32 year old Thomas Jefferson in the Spring of 1776, that American experiment began. The Declaration of Independence set forth our mission statement. Like all mission statements, it represented not what we were, but what we aspired to be. For nearly 250 years, the story of America has been the struggle between those who want to move us closer to that ideal and those who want to stop them.
