History repeats itself over and over again.

 Quote:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Thomas Jefferson 13 November 1787


Thomas Jefferson wrote the "Tree of Liberty Letter" in Paris in the Fall of 1787. In this letter he describes the "lies" told by the British Ministry.

 Quote:
The British ministry have so long hired their gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to believe them, & what is more wonderful, we have believed them ourselves.



 Quote:
And can history produce an instance of rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of it's motives. They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.


 Quote:
And what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them.


Tree of Liberty Letter


DON'T LET LIBERTY DIE UNDER OBAMA.
