America’s Founding Fathers have been a real inspiration to me. Most of my insights actually come from their writings. To read them at length is to begin to understand a distillation of economy, character, order, purpose and integrity that is pure genius.

I am dedicating a page of this site to quotes from their writings and observations made about them. When you read and are inspired by their truly American contribution to philosophy, science and politics, remember that they were first entrepreneurs that proved they could. – Casey Benjamin Jurado

Thomas Jefferson:

A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

George Washington:

However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion. (Farewell address 1796)

John Adams:

There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.

Thomas Paine:

If we do not hang together, we shall surely hang separately.

If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.

Benjamin Franklin:

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
