       At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the
Declaration of Independence along with John Adams

       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."
