"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


If that only were a true quote from Thomas Jefferson it alone would label that man as a genius.

I believe so, I heard it once on a radio talk show and looked it up because it sounded so perfect. I don't believe it has ever shown up in any of his writings but was just credited to him.

Another quote falsely attributed to Jefferson...

"Dammit, Weezy...we ain't hangin' out with no whiteys!"

I don't buy a lot of what they're selling... even a deactivated cell-phone, if powered on, can dial 911... so, the premise for this gov't subsidized tracfone service for emergency purposes makes no sense to me

What I found is it's unproven...

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."-Unproven! This quote was not found in the Jeffersonian Cyclopedia but several people have attributed this to Jefferson. This is still under investigation.
