No Matter Where or When, President Obama is the Least Informed and/or Learned Person in the Room!

g-obama no salute to flagAt every turn, President Obama proves his total disregard or ignorance of America, its history, protocol, finance, business, labor, academia, God, radical Islam, taxation, military, and everything near and dear to most American hearts.

In contrast, consider a President like Thomas Jefferson who is perhaps the most intelligent man to hold the office of the President of the United States. There is a reason his likeness is on Mount Rushmore.

All of these popular points of wisdom are attributed to Thomas Jefferson…

Ø “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “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

Ø “My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ø “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” — Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson in 1802 said, “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. 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 the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God and his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be much more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past desperately needed to lead us into the future.
President John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation, at that time when he made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House – with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone!”
