WE NEED A LEADER LIKE THOMAS JEFFERSON
Thomas Jefferson was a remarkable man who started learning early in life and never stopped. For example at age 5 he began studying under his cousin's tutor - At age 9 he studied Latin, Greek and French - and at age 16 he entered the College of William and Mary where he could write in Greek with one hand while writing the same in Latin with the other. At 19, he studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe and started his own law practice at 23 - At 25, he was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses - At 31 he wrote the widely circulated "Summary View of the Rights of British America and then retired from his law practice.
At 32, he was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress - At 33, he wrote the Declaration of Independence - At 33, he took three years to revise Virginia's legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.
At 36, he was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry - At 40, he served in Congress for two years - At 41, he was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.
At 46, he served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington - At 53, he served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society - At 55, he drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became head of the Republican Party - At 60, he obtained the Louisiana Purchase which doubled the nation's size - At 61, he was elected to a second term as President - At 65, he retired to Monticello - At 80, He helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine - and at 81, he almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first president.
At 83, Thomas Jefferson died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence, and his good friend and political colleague John Adams who also was a signer of the Declaration of Independence died on the same day.
Thomas Jefferson was very well versed in the history of politics, having long studied the nature of both Gods law and the nature of man, indeed his is the kind of voice from the past that we sorely need in order to lead our nation to greatness in the future. In fact President John F. Kennedy once held a dinner in the White House attended by a group of the brightest mind in America, during the course of which he stated the following: "This is perhaps the largest assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House, with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone." President Kennedy was right as evidenced by the following Thomas Jefferson quotes listed below, which ring especially true for the world of today. "When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe." "Democracy will cease to exist when you take from those who are willing to work, and give to those who will not." “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes, a principle which if acted on would end half the wars of the world."
"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 the worse government results from too much government."
"No free man shall be debarred the use of arms, as the strongest reason for the people’s right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against government tyranny, thus the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of idea’s concerning which he does not believe and he abhors is both sinful and tyrannical."
"I believe private banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the corporations that grow up around these banks will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
Well folks in the book of Isaiah (CH. 3 - VS.4) we are told there will come a time when “I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them” thus we need only look to the liberal administration of Justine P. Turdeau to realize that we are indeed living in just such a time of being “Ruled over by a child” so let’s turf this narcissistic brat out of office in October and send him to a day care centre that has a good old fashioned woodshed for some intensive obedience to the rule of law training, and lie telling remediation therapy.
