THOMAS JEFFERSON QUOTES
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
Who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
We shall become as corrupt as Europe .
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.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
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.'
