Jefferson Would be Appalled
Letter to Editor by Alan Journet, Ashland Daily Tidings, Medford Mail Tribune, Coos Bay World, January 14th 2017.
I admire those who say what they really think, not those who lie repeatedly or say just what they think we want to hear. I therefore had to applaud when Ashland City Councilman Rich Rosenthal wrote: “The specter of the Trump administration has the feel of an invasion by an occupying force.”
Maybe Rich was thinking of the words of Thomas Jefferson: “A properly functioning democracy depends on an informed electorate.”

“A properly functioning democracy depends on an informed electorate.” Thomas Jefferson wrote about the importance of a well-informed electorate many times.
