thomas jefferson quotes

"Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God." --Thomas Jefferson: his motto.

what a motto huh?


"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established, should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience [has] shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." --Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:429

Thomas Jefferson was a brilliant man. Here are some of his quotes that are prevelant to even today's issues.

"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

"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

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government." - Thomas Jefferson

"Never spend your money before you have earned it." - 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

"The moment a person forms a theory, his imagination sees in every object only the traits which favor that theory." - 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

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

Are you trying to spell traitors or are you just stating the fact that our forefathers negotiated in the trade of goods?


Now ask yourself why our public education is the way it is...
