Eternal Hostility Against Tyranny over the Mind of Man

Of all the history teachers I have spoken to in recent years, at least a dozen have had the pleasure of viewing the Thomas Jefferson Memorial.  None were able to remember what was engraved in the marble stone, which is.  “I have sworn upon the Altar of God, Eternal Hostility Against every form of Tyranny over the mind of man.”  I guess the reason they can not remember such a profound statement is that they simply don’t recall or they don’t consider that statement to be important.  Mitt Romney laughs when he is asked about global warming and our nation’s longest and most costly war, (The Drug War).  14 million years of imprisonment have been laid down in the last 40 years, 60% for marijuana related, whose crime was the partaking and marketing some harmless herb.  A 100 thousand Americans die each year from using prescribed legal pharmaceutical drugs, compared to a thousand from all combined illegal drugs.  Not one person has died in 10,000 years of smoking or eating marijuana.  I believe that any one who profits from laying off hard working men and women, bankrupting factories, and sending those jobs out of this country should be forced to go live in the countries where those jobs were sent and not ever be allowed to return.  I also believe the men, if that is what you wish to call them, that ran to Canada to avoid serving in the armed services in the sixties should never been allowed to return.  Is it true that all men in this country have a 6 year military obligation?  Or is that a myth?  Terry Cook, Findlay, Ohio
