How Far We Have Strayed . . .

Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.—George Washington

A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which 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
