Seneca leader Guyasuta and General George Washington- 1790

Freedom is not without sacrifice, Happy Birthday America!  Simple but meaniful words that continue to echo even today…  The history of the United States goes beyond and before 1776…

When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.              –Ben Franklin

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored.  Liberty, once lost, is lost forever..   -John Adams, July 7, 1775

 “…cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible…avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt….it is essential that you…bear in mind, that towards the payments of debts there must be Revenue, that to have Revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised, which are not…inconvenient and unpleasant…”    — George Washington

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty. –-Ben Franklin

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it. –Abraham Lincoln, July 10, 1858

“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.”   – John Adams  1776

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” –Thomas Jefferson

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died within hours of each other, on the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1826. There is probably no greater coincidence in American history than this….

THE CONSTITUTION RATIFIED JUNE 21, 1788
