Thomas Jefferson

Here are some timely quotes by one of the Founders of our great nation. (According to DHS he would be labled an extremist)

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from thosewho are willing to work and give to those who would not.

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.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent thegovernment from wasting the labors of the people under the pretenseof taking care of them.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government resultsfrom too much government.

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas whichhe disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties thanstanding armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to controlthe issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks andcorporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of allproperty until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathersconquered.
