When Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence for America; there were no teleprompters and he knew how to walk the walk.
Jefferson was a student of government who understood the basic human frailties that led to failure over time.
His vision was predicated on common sense values and Divine guidance which left no room for today's secular politically correct agenda.
He understood actual history, the nature of God and the nature of man.

John F. Kennedy once held a dinner at the White House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: " This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

Consider the prophetic wisdom offered in the following ten (10) selected quotes by Thomas Jefferson:

1.  "When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe , we shall become as corrupt as Europe" .

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

3.  "It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world".

4.  "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".

5.  "My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government".

6.  "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms".

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

8.  "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants".

9.  "To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical".

10.  "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".

Thomas Jefferson is proof that God truly blessed America...........I pray that God may bless America once again.
