Thomas Jefferon quotes.

Postby kiryan » Tue Sep 14, 2010 9:07 pm

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.'

people who would say our forefathers didnt understand or couldnt have known what america would become have not read the things theyve penned or even the constitution and bill of rights itself
they saw it all coming, they did their best to protect us from it and it was our own ignorance and disregard that has put this country into the current situation
love for america does not equal love for its current government, propaganda or policies nor vice-versa

very true. I'm reminded of the Roman slogan, bread and games which pacified the romans as their empire crumbled around them. Welfare and Healthcare!

Republicans don't believe in the founding fathers or the bill of rights. Just ask anyone who lives in Texas... if they still remember who Thomas Jefferson is.
