Thomas Jefferson… Years Ahead of His Time

Falcon:

Here’s a few quotes indicating Jefferson was hundreds of years ahead of his time and must of known about democrats long before they were ever invented.  I wonder if he sensed an Obama on the American horizon; so many years ago?

“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

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” — 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

“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
