Thomas Jefferson Said ....

"I have the consolation of having added nothing to my private fortune during my public service, and of retiring with hands clean as they are empty."
"Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state."

"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. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

"An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens."
