"TO PRESERVE OUR INDEPENDENCE, WE MUST NOT LET OUR RULERS LOAD US WITH PERPETUAL DEBT. IF WE RUN INTO SUCH DEBTS WE (will then) BE TAXED IN OUR MEAT AND OUR DRINK, IN OUR NECESSITIES AND IN OUR 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." .....he wrote this in the year 1791 Fast forward to the year 2006, I believe this has all come to be. I'll bet if alive today, he would have been a member of LOTTERY POST, posting winning combination predictions. GoldenEgg....... a resident of New Jersey humbly awaiting the state's Lottery shutdown to end........sigh....
