Thomas Jefferson, can you hear the words written?

Thomas Jefferson quotes and I ask does anything sound familiar in these quotes?  Are there any words quotes that apply today in the U.S.A.?  I ask all of you to answer these as questions for your self and your life?

"The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.” - Thomas Jefferson

"We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt." - Thomas Jefferson

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” - Thomas Jefferson

“Experience has shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” - Thomas Jefferson

"No man will labor for himself who can make another labor for him." - - Thomas Jefferson

"A little rebellion now and then is a good thing and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical." - Thomas Jefferson

“The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” - Thomas Jefferson

“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” - Thomas Jefferson

“A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of government is tyranny!” - Thomas Jefferson

“Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.” - Thomas Jefferson

“Upon the altar of God I pledge eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man ” - Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” - Thomas Jefferson

“I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us that the less we use our power the greater it will be.” - Thomas Jefferson

"If I am to meet with a disappointment, the sooner I know it, the more of life I shall have to wear it off."  - Thomas Jefferson

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of Constitutional power.” - Thomas Jefferson

Now that you read them, where do you stand?

These written words along with so many others speak loudly to me!
