The Sum Of Good Government

This sums it up:

“[A] wise and frugal government…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 it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801 The Patriot Post

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

      At least, Mr. O- and it is going to take awhile to get back to what our country was supposed to be-
      To answer Ben Franklin, “We, sir, are going to hold onto this Republic.”
