Thomas Jefferson was right!!!

Looking back at quotes from Thomas Jefferson reveal how intuitive, brilliant, and unfortunately correct he was. Our government has degenerated into a vile political machine with people who care more for power and privilege than for the people they are supposed to serve. They forgot about why they were elected.

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

He who knows best knows how little he knows.

He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.

All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.

Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.

A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Think I'm negative on our current political crowd? Don't listen to me...listen to Karl Marx, a fan favorite everywhere. "In the due course of history, there will be an inevitable breakdown of capitalism for economic reasons, to be replaced by communism." What do you think the politicians are doing right now? Terrifying...
