Thomas Jefferson, quotes for today



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

In light of the present financial crisis, it’s  

interesting to read what Thomas Jefferson

said in 1802:

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. 

Doesn’t this sound eerily familiar to what is

happening in America today?
