FOUNDING FATHER’S WORDS OF WISDOM MEANT FOR TODAY


The words of Thomas Jefferson have as much meaning today as they had when spoken. Could Jefferson foresee the future?
Here are some quotes from our former President – think about what he said and how it applies to us more so than ever.

* The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear       arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in             government.

* “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are      neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.  Such laws make      things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they            serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an                        unarmed man may be attached with greater confidence than an              armed man.” (Quoting Cesare Beccaria)

* The beauty of the 2nd Amendment right is that it will not be needed     until they try to take it.

* When the people fear the government there is tyranny; when the          government fears the people, there is liberty.

* 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.

* The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those           who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

* Most bad government has grown out of too much government.

We don’t need to just read Jefferson’s words, we need to listen as he is speaking to us. They were aimed directly to us for our time.   The people of then understood.

  1. Reblogged this on POLITICAL SLEIGHT OF HAND and commented:
    I agree, they are as true to us today as they were then, the Founding Father’s Words light my path of Independence. Benjamen Franklin said, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” or John Adams wrote that “There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide,” and James Madison wrote in Federalist 10 that “Democracies have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.” Ty Arlin Report
