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.

I wish we could get this out to everyone!!!
