Thomas Jefferson Quote

I place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared…To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude…The same prudence, which, in private life, would forbid our paying our money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the disposition of the public moneys…We [must endeavor] to reduce the government to the practice of a rigorous economy, to avoid burdening the people, and arming the magistrate with a patronage of money, which might be used to corrupt and undermine the principles of our government…The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt, are indications soliciting the employment of a pruning knife…It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.

This site is dedicated to the idea that once was the United States. That idea was a land dedicated to freedom from government interventionism, a land that distrusted the inherent evils of a strong central government, a land of freedom. Now the United States is a land of security and rampant government interventionism.

As Henry Grady Weaver wrote in THE MAINSPRING OF HUMAN PROGRESS:

"Most of the major ills of the world have been caused by well-meaning people who ignored the principle of individual freedom, except as applied to themselves, and who were obsessed with fanatical zeal to improve the lot of mankind-in-the-mass through some pet formula of their own....THE HARM DONE BY ORDINARY CRIMINALS, MURDERERS, GANGSTERS, AND THIEVES IS NEGLIGIBLE IN COMPARISON WITH THE AGONY INFLICTED UPON HUMAN BEINGS BY THE PROFESSIONAL 'DO-GOODERS', who attempt to set themselves up as gods on earth and who would ruthlessly force their views on all others - with the abiding assurance that the end justifies the means." (p. 40-1; P.P.N.S., p. 313)
