“To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between liberty and economy, or profusion and servitude.”

-Thomas Jefferson

We need to listen to the author of the Declaration of Independence. We can not let Congress burden us with huge amounts of debt. Congress doesn’t seem to realize that we can’t keep going in debt! Debt was what caused the housing crisis, and that was just the debt of the people. Imagine what would happen if the United States of America had to pay off all of it’s debts within the next year. It would be impossible. We can not allow ourselves to go further in debt. Wake up America! Stand up for a debt free nation.

  1. Here is another one by Thomas Jefferson on National Debt:

    Thomas Jefferson on Politics & Government

    38. The National Debt

    Loading up the nation with debt and leaving it for the following generations to pay is morally irresponsible. Excessive debt is a means by 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.

    I think this one says alot too !!!!
