It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
John Adams, 1798
"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question."
Thomas JeffersonMarch 4, 1801, First Inaugural Address
