Jefferson Predicts America in 2009

From our friends over Freedom Watch:
Jefferson Predicts America in 2009

“If we run into debts, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they do now, on oatmeal and potatoes; have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves out to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers.”

(Jefferson to Samuel Kerchival, March, 1816)

(The Jeffersonian Cyclopedia, Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1900, pp. 234-235)
