Sen. Jim Jeffords joins Paul Revere, Teddy Roosevelt, and others who, by their words and actions have spread the alarm when malefactors of great wealth and legislative thugs threaten the nation. Somehow, we, the people, are saved from ourselves when we need to be, whether or not we deserve to be. The only immediate danger is that the radical right may commit acts of uncivil disobedience to protest against being unable to have their way.
