Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson. Here are some of my favorite Jefferson Quotes on his Birthday!

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.  

We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.   From a  letter to Samuel Kercheval, July 12, 1816  

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

If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.

Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)
