More Founder's Quotes

In this age of liberal bashing of our Founder's as racists and slave owners, and, the drive to accept the Constitution as a document overcome by the new age, I look at the wisdom from our Founder's and think how blessed we are to have some many people together in a short period of history with the wisdom they had.

"Contemplate then, the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and ask, what should be the reward for such sacrifice? Whether ye love wealth better than liberty, servitude better than the animating contest of freedom...go home from us now. We seek not your counsel, nor arms. Crouch down then, and lick the hand which feeds you...may your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were ever our countrymen." ~Samuel Adams~ (August, 1776, at the Philadelphia Statehouse)

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government. So let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so that the second will not become the legal version of the first." ~Thomas Jefferson~

"Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world." ~U.S. Senator Daniel Webster~ (1782-1852)
