Thomas Jefferson 1802

Thomas Jefferson 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 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.’
