I am committed against every thing which, in my judgment, may weaken, endanger or destroy the Constitution, and especially against all extension of Executive power; and I am committed against any attempt to rule the free people of this country by the power and the patronage of the Government itself.”
“It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions…There are men, in all ages… who mean to govern well; but they mean to govern.

“I, however, place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual dept…I am for a government rigorously frugal and simple.” Thomas Jefferson
“We in America do not have government by the majority_we have government by the majority who participate…All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson
