The Gospel Truth: Thomas Nirvana Jefferson

Pin It Now!
"Every citizen should be a soldier.  
This was the case with the Greeks and Romans,
and must be the case of all free states."

"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone.
The people itself are its only safe depositories."

"Force is the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism."

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties
than standing armies."

"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations
which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, 
and bid defiance to the laws of our country."

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization,
it expects what never was and never will be."

"Merchants have no country.  
The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an
attachment as that from which they draw their gains."

"Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct."

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.  
When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

 -- All  of the above quotes attributed to Thomas Jefferson

"Load up on guns and bring your friends"
from "Smells Like Teen Spirit," by Nirvana (Cobain, Novoselic, Grohl)

"It's time to re-create our future.  Unfortunately, it appears we must do it the hard way."
--  The Preacher
