  "In [the Founders'] enlightened belief, nothing stamped with the Divine image and likeness was sent into the world to be trodden on, and degraded, and imbruted by its fellows. They grasped not only the whole race of man then living, but they reached forward and seized upon the farthest posterity.   They erected a beacon to guide their children and their children's children, and the countless myriads who should inhabit the earth in other ages. Wise statesmen as they were, they kenw the tendency of prosperity to breed tyrats, and so they established these great self-evident truths, that when in the distant future some man, some faction, some interst, should set up the doctrine that none but rich men, or none but white men, were entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, their posterity might look up again to the Declaration of Independence and take courage to renew the battle which their fathers began -- so that truth, and justice, ad mercy, and all the humane Christian virtues might not be extinguished from the land; so that no man would here-after dare to limit and circumscribe the great principles on which the temple of liberty was being built..." --- Abraham Lincoln 1858-08-17 speech at Lewistown, IL (quoted in 1953 _The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln_ vol2 pp546-547; quoted in Mark R. Levin 2012 _Ameritopia: The UnMaking of America_ pg21)

Proposed Bills 2016

  "The depreciating of currencies has become such a popular form of trying to raise one's self by one's own boot-straps in our own day that we may here discuss Jefferson's sufferings from earlier experiments and his views on money and debt.   The landed property which came to him with his wife was valued at $40K but was burdened with a debt to British merchants of $13K.   Jefferson, who had a horror of debt, either personal or public, sold land to raise the $13K and to clear the rest of his property of such an encumbrance.   Then came the Revolution, and it was impossible to transmit the money.   The Virginia legislature passed a resolution stating that any one owing British merchants might deposit the money in the state treasury and be protected.   As is invariably the case in war, few people realized at its beginning the length of time it might last or its devastating effects.   The Revolution was no exception, and at its beginning most people did not believe, or wish, that it would result in separation from Britain.   Jefferson was anxious to get his debt paid and off his mind.   He deposited the money in the treasury.   Later the legislature rescinded the resolution, and the deposits were returned to those who had made them but in treasury certificates which had depreciated so greatly that Jefferson was just able to buy an over-coat with what had been his $13K.   He again sold property to clear the debt but got paper money which again depreciated as fast as the certificates.   When the war was over he wrote his British creditors that he was desirous of settling the debt.   Certain laws had been passed behind which he might have taken refuge but he wrote that 'what the laws of Virginia are, or may be, will in no wise influence my conduct. &nbp; Substantial justice is my object.'   Thus he virtually paid the same debt 3 times.   No wonder he rose in wrath whenever Hamilton or others accused him of not wishing to honor obligations." --- James Truslow Adams 1936 _The Living Jefferson_ pg334

Except that computer people use 2 as a base raised to multiples of powers of 10, instead of 10 raised to multiples of powers of 3 because powers of 2 are handier for them, but they also want to stay somewhat close to the values of 10 most folks are used to.

  "Experience has shewn that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to iluminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, which history exhibiteth,... and whereas it is generally true that people will be happiest whose laws are best, and are best administered, and that laws will be wisely formed, and honestly administered, in proportion as those who form and administer them are wise and honest; whence it becomes expedient for promoting the publick happiness that those persons, whom nature hath endowed with genius and virtue, should be rendered by liberal education worthy to receive, and able to guard the sacred deposits of the rights and liberties of their fellow citizens, and that they should be called to that charge without regard to wealth, birth, or other accidental condition or circumstance; but the indigence of the greater number disabling them from so educating, at their own expense, those of their childen whom nature hath fitly formed and disposed to become useful instruments for the public, it is better that such should be sought for and educated at the common expense of all, than that the happiness of all should be confined to the weak and wicked." --- Thomas Jefferson (quoted in James Truslow Adams 1936 _The Living Jefferson_ pg109-110; citing Thomas Jefferson and Paul Leicester Ford 1892 _Writings of Thomas Jefferson_ vol2 pg220f)
