true this is today….
Thomas Jefferson "I place economy among the first and most important virtues and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared.
To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with public
debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of 'caring for them,' they will be happy."
