If Jefferson were still alive ... he'd be organizing a Revolution as we speak ....


"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."

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

"A government big enough to supply you with everything you need is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.... The course of history shows that as the government grows, liberty decreases."


All quotes by Thomas Jefferson

Move along, nothing to see here, beware of the tinfoil hat, the government is here to help

"Everyone who accepts such a government is just as guilty as the ones who created it"

How about James Madison:

"Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes...known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. . . No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."

- James Madison, Political Observations, 1795


He should go back to DU!
