Fake quotes are so rampant today, that it isn't worth my time to look into these quotes. It's a fair guess, that at LEAST half of them are complete fabrications.

What Hayes was really saying, " I don't like these quotes and what they stand for so they must be fake and meaningless"

According to truthorfiction dot com, some of the quotes were found in the Jefferson Cyclopedia and some are unproven.

The LTE seems to be copied from the example of the eRumor as posted on the truthorfiction dot com website (search for Jefferson quotes).

Premier you will believe anything that affirms you beliefs.

The fact is some of these quotes are inaccurate.

Does the meaning of the quote matter less if it was not said by Jefferson?

Sory for the triple repeat.

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." Doesn't this negate the idea of a nation?

Chain post on the social media! Did the author of the LTE cite his reference? No. Thanks Cave for that information.

If this was indeed copied, it says something about the submitter, but it does not disprove the content, and even if some of these are not direct Jefferson quotes, enough are to give you the idea that he would not approve of our current government.

CHayes-"Fake quotes are so rampant today, that it isn't worth my time to look into these quotes. It's a fair guess, that at LEAST half of them are complete fabrications."

Since you suggested it, I checked it out. According to TruthorFiction, 6 are true, 1 is misquoted and 2 are 'Unproven. This quote was not found in the Jeffersonian Cyclopedia but several websites have attributed this to Jefferson" and 1 is "Unproven! This quote was not found in the Jeffersonian Cyclopedia but several people have attributed this to Jefferson. This is still under investigation."

If the quotes can stand on their own then why add jefferson's name to them if only to give them more credence therefore no disagreement.
