WHAT THOMAS JEFFERSON HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE WAY OUR PRESENT GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DOING THIER BUSINESS

A must read for every American.  Thomas Jefferson talks about a Nations Debt and the National Debt Limits.  I found it by mistake but really enjoyed it.  Especially the first paragraph:

“Loading up the nation with debt and leaving it for the following generations to pay is morally erresponisble. Excessive debt is a means which governments oppress the people and waste their substance. No nation has a right to contract debt for periods longer than the majority contracting it  can expect to live.”
