Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

I have been many things in my life.
To England I traveled during times of strife.

I owned a printing shop and made its periodicals popular.
Many enjoyed my views and called me a philosopher.

I loved inventing and in the field of science I strove.
Some of my inventions were bifocal eyeglasses, the glass harmonica and even a stove.

Many public offices have I held and served long,
Not the least of which, was reorganizing the postal system and making it strong.

Thanks to my love for travel, debates and tendency to chat,
I earned the title of diplomat.

I spent many times in England, that's a fact.
I defended American rights and fought for repeal of the Stamp Act.

My ability to write and strong belief that all men are created equal caused me to help design
A Declaration of Independence, on which the original I did sign.

Be original, a thinker, give it a try.
Can you figure out my name; who am I?
