No--he was just a very wise and educated man.





DID THOMAS JEFFERSON HAVE A CRYSTAL BALL?
IT HAS BEEN said the greatest volume of sheer brainpower in one place occurred when Jefferson dined alone...
HOW DID JEFFERSON KNOW??????


Especially read the last quote from 1802.
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..'



'If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.'
-Mark Twain

They forgot that only White Males should have the right to vote.

Hey wingnuts, get a clue: your mighty hero Jefferson is making the case for SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE! You know, that horrible liberal idea that says the state cannot, should not, and must not subsidize or be ruled by religion.

No one could know more about liberty than a man who personally denied it to about 500 people.

I predict that almost 200 years after my death wingnuts will be making up stuff and attaching my name to it.

To CMcD: LOL! good one!

This is the same as cherry picking Bible verses to justify whatever excressences you feel like foisting out there.

I like this quote, though:

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.

Uh, well, whaddaboud the giant DEBT accrued in W? Oh yeah, I forgot: somehow that is all NOBama's fault in their twisted view.

The irony about saving one-half of the wars of the world is also LOST to these easily manipulated hypocrits.

Why go on? Dumb and dumber....
