    Absolutely amazing how one of the founding fathers would KNOW what we face today!!!!

    "It has been said the greatest volume of sheer brainpower in one place occurred when Jefferson dined alone...."

    John Kennedy

    HOW DID JEFFERSON KNOW??????

    Especially read the last quote from 1802.




    And pass these on to your children and grandchildren!!







    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

    In 1802 Thomas Jefferson said:
    '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..'

    Another good quote, "It used to be we paid off the mortgage and gave the kids the farm. Today we are selling the farm and giving the kids the mortgage." - Newt Gingrich on Sean Hannity March 23, 2010
