Thomas Jefferson, unsurprisingly, commented on the Lance Armstrong blood doping controversy 225 years ago.
On November 13th, 1787 he wrote a letter to William Smith saying:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the doped blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it's natural manure."
Jefferson was obviously talking about Armstrong's battle with the USADA. It seems as though Armstrong's blood has already been spilled time and time again as they have asked for numerous samples. The resolution seems quite simple. It's time for the tyrants to spill blood as well, USADA owes a piece of flesh.
For our tree of liberty to be strong and healthy we need the blood of both, the manure is week and can't be made stronger without the blood of the USADA. Keep fighting Lance! Jefferson believes in you.
