Wisdom, Founder Style

"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government]
those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations,
perverted it into tyranny."
-Thomas Jefferson

Slow operations? Like ATF, FBI, TSA, EPA, DEA... Medicare, Medicaid, Kelo v New London, Roe v Wade? Cap and control -uh, tax err trade, Obummercare...?

That Thomas guy sure did know human nature, didn't he?

Those "entrusted with power" should never be trusted, parties be damned.
