– Thomas Jefferson

Still one thing more, fellow citizens, a wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.

– Thomas Jefferson, 1st Inaugural Address

    Incredible words, even 200+ later! Where did we go off the track?

      Our founders combed through 5000 years of ‘successful’ governments, and sought inspiration from God. They wanted to prove that man needs no Eartly master, and gave man the ability to keep tyrants at bay. They were unique in history.

    – Benjamin Franklin

    There are two ways to conquer a nation…one is by war, the other is by debt.

    -John Adams

    Every dollar in circulation today is created as debt…loaned into existence at interest. That is the root of our slavery.

    Our nation was conquered long ago, but you are asleep to the reality.

    Godor? Who is Godor? Is he from outer space?

  5. NoMoreGore says:

    “Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty” – (attributed to) Thomas Jefferson et al.


  6. Godor Toyevsky says:

    Benjamin Franklin was a US President? I never knew!

    • Ben says:


      It doesn’t say US president. You assumed that in error.

      Benjamin Franklin served three terms as president of Pennsylvania, before the office of governor was established after 1789.

      Live and learn sir.

  7. Godor, are you a liberal? You seem very good at deflecting, and ignoring the core.
