The Wisdom Of Thomas Jefferson

"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."
