What a strange reading of Jefferson. Look at where leftists are trying to take us. No protection for intellectual property because the rich make money off of it. If you could steal (sorry, use) anyone's ideas wouldn't the rich benefit vastly more than they are now. The dangerous Communist tennent of demonizing the rich always ends with the poor getting screwed. I believe jealousy is more destructive than greed. Greed makes you want something, jealousy makes you want someone else's thing. Please keep speaking truth to leftist power.
