Out Of The Mouths Of Indentured Brits

Ah, but I do have a truly soft spot in my heart for the British. In bemoaning the fact that their government is spending them into the same economic oblivion as Obama is doing to us, they turn to none other than Thomas Jefferson for guidance. As the Telegraph quotes today:

"To preserve [the people's] independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our selection between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude."

Thomas Jefferson, President of the United States of America,1801-1809.

Just out of curiosity, do they teach Jefferson in our public schools any more?

Of course they don't, GW--he was far, far too sensible and principled!
