Thomas Jefferson 
Knew because he himself studied 
the previous failed attempts at government. 

He understoodActual 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 itgoes. 
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."

This was one of those email forwards... 
but I thought it interesting enough to pass on!

Enjoy the Journey!
