More from the Thomas Jefferson Hour
“You have a population of 330 million. This is a way that the whole system is designed to distill their will.” — Clay S. Jenkinson

"I believe that each faction, each party, has a moral duty to reach over to the other and to try to find common ground, and that each party should take the lead in being civil and respectful and generous."
