This Hilarious Meme DESTROYS Bernie Sanders’ Evil Plan For America

Here are 10 quotes from America’s Founding Fathers that Bernie Sanders has clearly never read:
1. “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”
– Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
2. “A lady asked Dr. Franklin Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy — ‘A republic,’ replied the Doctor, ‘if you can keep it.'”
– Anonymous, from Farrand’s Records of the Federal Convention of 1787
3. “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation.”
– John Marshall, McCullough v. Maryland, 1819
4. “Besides, to lay and collect internal taxes in this extensive country must require a great number of congressional ordinances, immediately operation upon the body of the people; these must continually interfere with the state laws and thereby produce disorder and general dissatisfaction till the one system of laws or the other, operating upon the same subjects, shall be abolished.”
– Federal Farmer, Antifederalist Letter, October 10, 1787
5. “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.”
– Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788

6. “Government, in my humble opinion, should be formed to secure and to enlarge the exercise of the natural rights of its members; and every government, which has not this in view, as its principal object, is not a government of the legitimate kind.”

– James Wilson, Lectures on Law, 1791
7. “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”
– Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
8. “How prone all human institutions have been to decay; how subject the best-formed and most wisely organized governments have been to lose their check and totally dissolve; how difficult it has been for mankind, in all ages and countries, to preserve their dearest rights and best privileges, impelled as it were by an irresistible fate of despotism.”
– James Monroe, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 10, 1788
9. “If Virtue & Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav’d. This will be their great Security.”
– Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
10. “I am commonly opposed to those who modestly assume the rank of champions of liberty, and make a very patriotic noise about the people. It is the stale artifice which has duped the world a thousand times, and yet, though detected, it is still successful. I love liberty as well as anybody. I am proud of it, as the true title of our people to distinction above others; but…I would guard it by making the laws strong enough to protect it.”
– Fisher Ames, letter to George Richard Minot, June 23, 1789
