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.”

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
