"Conscience".seldom comes to a man's aid while he is in the zenith of health and reveling in pomp and luxury upon illgotten spoils. It is generally the last act of his life, and it comes too late to be of much service to others here, or to himself hereafter." ---General George Washington, letter John P. Posey, Aug. 7, 1782

"Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness." ---President, General George Washington, speech to Congress, Jan. 8, 1790

"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion." ---President, General George Washington, Farewell Address, Sep. 17, 1796.

"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from . . .want of honor or virtue, but from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation." - - John Adams second President.

"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance." ---Fourth President, James Madison.

"I hope we shall... crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and to bid defiance to the laws of our country." --- Third President, Thomas Jefferson, letter to George Logan. November 12, 1816""""""..source---Thomas Jefferson quotes.

 "" the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity"" --- Third President, Thomas Jefferson

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe." ---Third President, Thomas Jefferson

"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." ---Third President, Thomas Jefferson said in 1802.

  "...unless you become more watchful...and check this spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that the most important powers of Government have been given...away, and the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations." ---Seventh President, Andrew Jackson, Farewell Address to America, 1837

"In this point of the case the question is distinctly presented whether the people of the United States are to govern through representatives chosen by their unbiased suffrages or whether the money and power of a great corporation are to be secretly exerted to influence their judgment and control their decisions" ---President Andrew Jackson, on his address to Congress December 3, 1833. (He explicitly demanded that the banks cease its political activities or receive a corporate death sentence--revocation of its corporate charter.)

"I have the confederacy before me and the bankers behind me- and for my country, I fear the bankers the most!" --- Sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln.

"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." --- Sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln.

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country... Corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed." ---Sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln, 1864.

"Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." ---Sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln.
