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.
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.
