  • THE exchanges on these pages began as an email conversation. The discussion was moved to this website in order to make it available to a larger number of participants and to put it in a more readable and lasting format. The discussions are presented here with a minimum of editing; the text is in a subject-related order, rather than in the sequence in which it might occur on something like a Newsgroup or Discussion Club.

        The purpose of this forum is intelligent discussion, analysis, and critical evaluation of questions related to political and social issues from a Jeffersonian point of view. Other points of view are welcome, but the intent here is to examine those views with Jeffersonian principles. Visitors to this website are encouraged to join in these conversations by posting their comments, questions, etc., in the form provided at the bottom of each page. Comments will be posted temporarily in the order received, and in their original form, on the Recent Postings Page (See also Table of Contents to your left). Those same postings will be included permanently under the proper headings on these pages.

        You may register to receive the latest postings to this website via email by going to the Jeffersonians List at Topica. Or you can register simply by sending a BLANK email to:
    Topica will automatically send you a confirmation message. Once you are registered, you will receive an email every time a new posting is added to this website. That email will contain the new posting, with a link that will take you directly to the posting on this website. If you wish to reply to the posting, you can use the form at the bottom of the page on which the posting occurs.

        The discussion here is moderated but not censored. Only improper or unrelated comment will be excluded. The editor will not post comments that consist of ridicule, name-calling, personal insults, or inflammatory accusations based on unreasoned and unsupported opinions. In general, all comments should be in the form of a "Letter to the Editor," and not be directed to any other person who has posted a message. Please refrain from comments that only repeat or agree with something already said, and bear in mind that comments are not posted automatically, but usually within one or two days.
