If Virtue & Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav’d. This will be their great Security”. John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson ‘A good government is one "which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread that it has earned.’ Thomas Jefferson (inaugural address) ”I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government; I mean an additional article taking from the Federal Government the power of borrowing”. Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor
