Amer­i­cans have been through try­ing times be­fore

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

I found a cou­ple of quotes from some wise men:

“The prin­ci­ple of spend­ing money to be paid by pos­ter­ity, un­der the name of fund­ing, is but swin­dling fu­tu­rity on a large scale. Politi­cians should con­sider them­selves unau­tho­rized to sad­dle pos­ter­ity with our debts, and morally bound to pay them our­selves.”

— Thomas Jef­fer­son

“Those who pre­fer the tran­quil­ity of servi­tude had best be pre­pared to crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may pos­ter­ity for­get that you

were our coun­try­man!

— Sa­muel Adams

If it worked for them, it should work for us as well. Richard E.Wahl Kansas City, Mis­souri
