Re:Voices from the Grave

October 29, 2008

My intrepid sister used the Google to do a little research and it turns out the quote from Thomas Jefferson isn’t real.

Jefferson’s actual quote is:

“I sincerely believe … that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”  The reference for the quote is here.

That quote makes a bit more sense as Jefferson had more than a little familiarity with banking establishments.
