I'd rather see 500 thousand freedom drinkers survive the coming collapse than 300 million serfs, entwined in the same old shit...

Re: Drink from the pool of Jeffersonian freedom or become a serf
If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, and give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; And the sixteen being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they do now, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; But be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains around the necks of our fellow sufferers; And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for a second, that second for a third, and so on 'til the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering...and the forehorse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.

On the note of that, look up the State of Jefferson on wikipedia. I'm damn proud to come from that part of the country.

Your thread caught my eye because Thomas Jefferson is my hero. He is the most brilliant president this country has ever had. What has happened is his worst nightmare come true.

Half the sheep in the country don't even know who Jefferson is?
