Thomas Jefferson knew because he-himself studied the previous failed attempts at government.
He understood actual history, the nature of God, his laws and the nature of man.  That happens
to be way- way more than what most understand today.

 
A voice from the past to lead us in the future.

 
This has been around before, and should be repeated..
Jefferson really knew his stuff.

 

How did  Jefferson  know?
John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the
brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement:
“This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to
gather at one time in the White House with the exception of

when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
Especially read the last quote from 1802.

    When we get piled
upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as  Europe  .
Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every
generation to pay its own debts as it goes.
A principle which if acted on would save
one-half the wars of the world.

Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for
Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the
pretense of taking care of them.

Thomas Jefferson 

My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too much
government.

Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms.

Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the
people to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.

Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be
refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants.

Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with
his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Thomas Jefferson

Thomas  Jefferson said in 1802:
‘I believe that
banking institutions are more dangerous to
our liberties
than standing armies..
If the American people ever allow
private banks to control the issue of their
currency, first by inflation,
then by
deflation, the banks and corporations that will
grow up around the banks will deprive the people
of all property –
until their children
wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers
conquered.’

Thanks to Dave for this information 🙂
