The U.S. Founders and Ignored Warnings

https://grantcoulson.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/incentiveseverywherepicturecorrect1.jpg?w=444&h=288

    Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives. It’s not their money, of course they’ll waste it.

      The knowledge and intelligence of the founders of the United States of America was undoubtedly the highest of any group convened for the purpose of writing a government document.

Where is our nation headed if we don’t take action?   Listen to the words and warnings  given to us by our Founders!”

Here are some quotes from the greatest of all:  Words we should be paying attention to especially today.

“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

    Anticipating the welfare state. Take from the productive and give to the lazy and entitled. What a good idea.

“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

<insert>

     Mortgaging the future. Never a good idea.

“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

<.insert>

  Using coercive powers to take wealth away from those who create it and giving it to those who can only dissipate it.

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

<insert>

   Passed too much government about 20% ago.

“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

<insert>

   Violence can only be met with violence.
