    Default Thomas Jefferson quotes

    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

    And -- A Very Interesting Quote… In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what 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 wonder what Jefferson had to say about deadbeat dads, since he fathered so many kids with his slave Sally Hemmings?

    ^^ You constantly run around either making snarky comments about me, or accusing me of being racist/sexist, and I'm the one with the ego problem?

    Jefferson wasn't a "deadbeat" dad. He supported those little slave chilen' of his. He even let them work in the house instead of in the fields.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.
