THOMAS JEFFERSON – A FORGOTTEN FOUNDING FATHER!
My great friend on Jenkins sent this and I think I published it in the past. Apparently, if I did it was by a different title. This is so very important as we enter a new era with Donald Trump I will post it again. Our schools ,especially under Demoncratic leadership, have been systematically eliminating basic education to hide the brilliance of our founding fathers.
The latest dumbass deletion from our education systems is cursive writing. I suppose we need to assign another number for every new born American like the Social Security Number so they can sign their name. I suggest that they start with “X”-1 and proceed to “X”-300,000,000 so no one would have the same signature
Ron added, It is too bad the schools aren’t teaching the way our country was started. This is very thought provoking if you really read it and then think about it. We are becoming just what our forefathers left England to get away from.
NOW LEARN SOMETHING TODAY.

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. I doubt any President in my life time knew all of this so far. For sure “Obummer” and Hillary the Witch would have failed.
John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.” Thomas Jefferson
“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 government.” 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
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” I wish someone had listened.

Can you help Ron and I get this out to every American!
