Thomas Jefferson Speaks ...

I have decided to add some political posts and humor to supplement my spiritual posts ... of which I can only write two or three weekly. I realize this brings potential controversy and I hope no one is offended by this change. These are most troubling times for our nation, and I have decided it is negligent of me to ignore the multiple challenges that are leading to America's destruction and the loss of our freedoms. These issues impact all of us and will shape the America that our children and grandchildren will be forced to live in. We must stand up for our freedoms! All of them! One goal is that the addition of these current affairs will encourage more comments from those of you who visit each day.

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..'

Thomas Jefferson clearly had his faults, but he also possessed uncanny insights and wisdom regarding the events of the future. I am convinced that he got that understanding by looking at the most recent history as well as past history of the European continent. The nature of man does not change from one generation to the next.

Points to consider?
Does this post inspire your comments?
What is the number one problem facing America?
What do you think America needs to do to save our Republic?

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
God Bless You My Friends, Bob


  1. I am a firm believer every American should be engaged in our political system. We should do everything we can both legally and according to Gods Word to stand against the slippery slope of destruction our country is on.

    That being said;
    I believe the number one problem in the USA is a spiritual one. Unless Gods people repent and return to sound bible teaching and preaching in our churches, the world will never be convicted of sin, righteousness and judgment
    and our country is doomed

    We need to pray God will have mercy on us like he did Nenivah. Anyone want to volunteer to be a Jonah ?

  2. Thank you Ron! Those are words of wisdom. I have had periods where the fleeing Jonah and the Jonah in the belly of the whale would describe me well.
    God Bless, Bob

  3. We should do everything that we can within the system that God blessed us with. Ron is right, we have a spiritual problem. Thank God the church will be spared, but it will not get better until the King of King and the Lord of Lords returns in the clouds to establish his kingdom and rule.

  4. I'm so glad that Christians are FINALLY getting political. We can do so much good in this world with the "right" people in charge. Hey Bob thanks for stopping by Mr. kind words are much appreciated. God bless

  5. Bob, I feel that the major issue facing everybody at this time is basic greed (translate- materialism). Most people seem to want things, go get things and not necessarily plan to pay for them.Along with this goes the loss of spiritualism. It's time to stand up and be counted as being opposed to what is not scriptural. Thomas Jefferson had his feet soundly planted in the faith and what is right or wrong. Read the list again and ask "Right" or "Wrong" This is a big topic, both south and north of the border. If everyperson started living the life as Jesus would want us to, the North American continent would be a far different and better place!

    great question and I am sure not offended!

  6. Well said Ian. The problem in America is that the athiests have taken over our public school system and their agenda has become the rule rather than the exception. Right and wrong and truth or lie are not even part of the discussion, and now the children of those crazy ideas are adults making laws and then ...all of a sudden ... the next thing you know, boys are allowed in the girls locker rooms and bathrooms, and this is now law ... rather than a cause for expulsion. abnormal is now normal and this is what happens when we are forbidden from teaching Christian values, and forced to teach secular values to our children in pursuit of tolerance and inclusiveness.

    At the highest levels, nine attorneys who have been providing millions in free counsel to the most evil al quaeda terrorists, such as Kahlid Sheik Mohammad (911 architect), are now working for Attorney General Eric Holder, at America's justice dept.

    It is all about training up our children, and it appears the majority of our kids may have accepted the indoctrination and they are now adults ... running America into the ground.
