God has forbidden that we will experience more than twenty years without a revolt

Does this really sounds like a president?
This was actually words of Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. 

I wouldn't be so happy to have a president like that, but he did his work.
The thing he is most famous for is that he signed Declaration of independence.
That was written in September 1776. 

Just two years earlier he had done his first public attack against slavery, the only miss was that his family farm were dependent of slaves.
But this took a turn and he said that slavery was "abominable crime" so in good time before the Declaration of independence he had a good reputation when people talked against slavery.
How could this man become the president of the United States? 

well probably because he could something the Swedish politicians cant,
he could talk so people understood and promised a huge change in the US.
Well all politicians promise a "huge" difference but everyone knows that it doesn't work that way but Thomas Jefferson actually made some difference in the US history.

Once again, nice article!

As you point out, it is really important as politician to be able to communicate with the masses if you want to succeed. There are many cases where politicians have said that they want to take away one thing, but suddenly you realise that the politicians do not follow this statement either. Communication with the community is essential!

Rethorics are vital to a leader, the impression you give to the masses, the voters is as important as anything. Thomas Jefferson was a brilliant man, his views on politics in the Declaration of Independence have formed the United States. John F. Kenendy once said, while having that year's nobel winners at visit in the White House; "This is probably the greatest concentration of talent and genius in this house except for perhaps those times when Thomas Jefferson ate alone". Thomas Jefferson was that brilliant.
