Thomas Jefferson quotes

Discussion in 'Economics' started by andrasnm, Dec 31, 2007.

  1. "If the American people ever allow the banks to control issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers occupied."
    — Thomas Jefferson

    "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies."
    — Thomas Jefferson
     
  2. "We have no government armed in power capable of contending with
    human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our
    Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people.
    It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other."
    John Adams

    and



    "Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or
    monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes,
    exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did
    not commit suicide."
    John Adams
     
  3. "To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." Thomas Jefferson
     
  4. "The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence." John Adams
     
  5. That's all quite different from our present state of affairs... you know, "Government at the EXPENSE of the people... F*CK 'EM!".
