I
predict future happiness for
 Americans
if they can prevent the government

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

 against tyranny in
government.
Thomas

The
tree of liberty must be
 refreshed from
time to time with the blood of

 patriots and tyrants.

Thomas

To
compel a man to subsidize with
 his
taxes the propagation of ideas which he

 disbelieves and abhors is sinful and

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.’
