The Real Thomas Jefferson Saw Our Day Clearly!

Someone sent me the following quotes today by Thomas Jefferson who amazingly must have seen clearly where we were headed and pin pointed the problems we would face today! That made me think of my dear life-long friend Andy Allison who has written the best book available on Jefferson. (Of course Andy, as nearly everyone else I know, has also lost a loved one to an antidepressant, his beautiful teenage son, Jacob,  in 2003.)

The Real Thomas Jefferson: The True Story of

America’s Philosopher of Freedom

“Jefferson is the central figure in American history, and…he may yet prove to be the central figure in modern history. So stated noted historian Henry Steele Commager. And as the English novelist Samuel Butler once wrote, Though God cannot alter the past–historians can. His observation is especially applicable to our changing perceptions of great historical personalities, most of whom are relentlessly reinterpreted by each new generation of biographers.”

Jefferson on the subject of too much government

“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

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

Jefferson on the subject of banks

“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

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. — Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson on the subject of the right to bear arms

“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

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. These reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and sucessful withdrawal helps here:
