Quote 210

"The trend of looking back to the '60s has gotten us nowhere. You've got generations now that don't have anything of their own. They seem to long for identity. Teens are so consumed with the '60s, peace signs and psychedelia. Their own generation is full of young Republicans, and rock 'n' roll is guys in rubber pants and hair spray."

Quote 94

"When they took the fourth amendment, I was silent because I don't deal drugs. When they took the sixth amendment, I kept quiet because I know I'm innocent. When they took the second amendment, I said nothing  because I don't own a gun. Now they've come for the first amendment, and I can't say anything at all.”

Quote 107

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...  

What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion?

And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?

Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

Thomas Jefferson Democracy, Justice
