Thomas Jefferson
knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood
actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand
today.

Jefferson really knew his stuff.
A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

John F. Kennedy
held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightest minds
in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps
the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in
the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined
alone."

"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."

I wish we could get this out to every American!

I’m doing my part.

So Please do yours.

GOD BLESS AMERICA – IN GOD WE TRUST
