Original content by Albena Pachmakov

And it came to pass................
 

"It has been   said the greatest volume of sheer brainpower in one place occurred when Jefferson dined alone..."  John Kennedy 

     
 
                   Especially read the last quote from 1802.



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...'
 
 

'If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.'
-Mark Twain

One thing for sure would go along ways to saving the country and that would be ban Lawyers from being in politics. The next would be to make all politicians march to Europe every three years since they think they can walk on water.
