    • The Absolute Truths
    • “You Cannot Multiply Wealth by Dividing It”
      “Friends, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.”

If the American people ever allow private banks (and the Federal Reserve is a private bank) 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.”

      “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.”
    • Quotes from a DemocratThomas Jefferson
      “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.”
      “My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
      “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”
