Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson, his wisdom

I picked this up in an email. I found it extremely enlightening as to the thoughts of our founding fathers.

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 the future happiness of 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 ‘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
