Just a few quotes I found from Thomas Jefferson. To me they hit home like no other. Yet, few still only believe in his words.
"History, in general, only informs us what bad government is."
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not"
"A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither."
"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first."
