HOW DID JEFFERSON KNOW?

17 06 2010

One of the most brilliant men ever!
Obviously, he was a man ahead of his time.

HOW DID JEFFERSON KNOW?

Especially: Read the last quote from 1802. 

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, 
we shall become as corrupt as
Europe ..
Thomas Jefferson 


The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those 
who are willing to work and give to those who would not. 

Thomas Jefferson 


It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. 
A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world. 

Thomas Jefferson 


I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. 

Thomas Jefferson   


My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. 

Thomas Jefferson 


No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. 

Thomas Jefferson 


The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. 

Thomas Jefferson 


The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. 

Thomas Jefferson 


To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. 

Thomas Jefferson 


Thomas  Jefferson said in 
1802:
‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
 
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation,
 then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’  

I WISH WE COULD GET THIS OUT TO EVERYONE!!!
