The Other Thomas Jefferson Quotes

Much, too much, has been made of the PRIVATE letter of Thomas Jefferson as to the "wall between church and state". Perhaps all should not the following, OTHER, quotes from that founder's statements.

The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

Thomas Jefferson

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.
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.

Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too much
Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the
people to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson

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

To compel a man to subsidize with
his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Thomas Jefferson

. President Thomas Jefferson's note on the interpretation of the Constitution: "On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to to the probable one in which it was passed.

Supreme Court VS The Constitution?

After reading or hearing the sundry comments as to the Supreme Court I am reminded of four items.
1. The Constitution has its own provisions for such amendments as would add or subtract the rights of citizens (And legal immigrants); And,
2. President Thomas Jefferson's note on the interpretation of the Constitution: "On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 1823.
3. There is nothing in the Constitution which provides for "evolving standards of decency" or any granting or taking away of rights except by the amendment process OR to limit the laws passed in the Several-and-Sovreign States except by such means.
4. The 10th Amendment to the Constitution would appear to reinforce that limit.

I Want THESE Immigration Laws!

1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.

4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
* * * * * * * *
5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office
* * * * * * * *
6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food
stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any
burden will be deported.

Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens

Immigration & The Christ

The Cardinal-Archbishop of Los Angeles and many other Catholic “leaders” have made claims that Jesus the Christ would have supported open-borders and free immigrations into the USA.

That is a lie!

First, Jesus' kingdom was NOT of this world. How do I know? He said so himself! There is very little in the Gospels with direct application to government as opposed to the great number of verses addressed to the redemption of individuals and preaching His Word to the nations.

The most direct statement as to government was the classic “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's”. At the time of Jesus citizenship and residency in the Empire did, in fact, belong to Caesar and the Roman Senate. Through time that, in the USA, has passed to the Congress and the Legislature of the Several States (Yes, the States still have some residual power over citizenship, a power which may be increased when the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution is finally enforces.)

Surprise! Another Terrorist Muslim In USA

I doubt that too many persons are surprised that the person apparently (Self-admitted) responsible for the Times Square car bomb is a Muslim. The exceptions are those politicians, editors, professors, religious leaders and others who have accepted the state of dhimitude, that grossly inferior position allowed "unbelievers" under Islam.

As Muslims believe that the orders-and-commands in the Koran are the actual words of Allah and cannot be changed, it would appear that there will always be an ongoing stream of individual or collective Muslims who will wage the Koran-demanded perpetual war on us.

As that accused person is an American citizen, should (Must?) be charged with TREASON. However, it appears that those in our current Administration, who bow down before Islam (And its core leaders), will in this case, as in that of Major Hasan (Of Fort Hood infamy) not do so.

It also appears that the last sane national decision made as to such pools of terror was made by Spain in 1492 when it expelled all members of that criminal-terrorist movement out of Iberia. The "politically correct" denial of the potential of every adult-male Muslim to be a terrorist is based on ignorance--Or a pathological denial of reality.

The States' Concurrent Jurisdiction & "Illegals"

Some have claimed that the new Arizona "anti-illegal-immigrant" law is unconstitutional as the Federal (And unenforced) relevant laws preempt State jurisdiction. That is a false claim.

My State (Wisconsin) has laws punishing: Robbery (eg Of banks); Possession of a short-barreled (Sawed off) rifle or shotgun; Possession of a firearm by a felon; And, other and very serious crimes. The US Code also provides for the prosecution of "Bank Robbery" and the other crimes noted above. Offenders may be charged and tried for those offenses in either State or Federal (Or both) Courts. The penalties for State and Federal violations may be different.

I do not know of any person convicted in Wisconsin courts of those crimes who "beat the State rap" by claiming that the Federal laws preempt prosecution by the State.

The Arizona law merely asserts "concurrent jurisdiction" with the Federal government and Federal laws with differing penalties as is not uncommon in such matters.

Honesty in discussing Arizona's law demands the presentation of the above!
