“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.” Thomas 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.”

The above quote is attributed to President Thomas Jefferson (and the two below too.)

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

“…a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
