I believe, the election of 1800, that the American's republic's survival depended on the success of the candidates. I know the results of the elected votes were pretty close, but I had still had him beat by 8 points. But, the problem was when I had found out I had a tie with Burr. And as it went on, finally I had won the thirty-sixth vote. It might have been a little overwhelming at first, but I had won the election for sure!

I like vanilla ice cream, with a cherry on top. I love to read, write, and learn. I love to hang out with my 6 children and my 12 grandchildren. My favorite pet is Mockingbirds, I always have 4 at a time. I am a blessed man with a blessed family and I believe everyone is made equal and everyone should be treated fairly.
