the third president of the united states. Became president at the end of John Adams term in 1800. Major accomplishments include the Louisiana purchase and the reduction of the federal debt by decreasing the size of the federal government and military. Jefferson believed in the enlightenment philosophies of John Locke, and thusly believed taht governments purpose was to secure the rights of life, liberty, and proprety, and nothing more (he would be disgusted with the size of the gov today). His motto was " the gov which rules best rules least" . Also wrote the declaration of independence.
I am a Jeffersonian, I despise big government loving socialist pigs.
