...from a letter Jefferson wrote in 1762: The old-fellows say we must read to gain knowledge and gain knowledge to make us happy and admired. . . . Mere jargon!

It would mean putting the brakes on the billions of dollars allocated to force fundamental economic and societal manipulations through cap-and-trade schemes and fabricated "new energy economies," among many other intrusive policies.
