Quotes From The Friends Of Liberty

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency,

homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.”

Thomas Jefferson

Among the natural rights of the colonists are these:
First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property;
together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.

Samuel Adams

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties,
each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other.
This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest
political evil under our Constitution.

John Adams
