The Wisdom of Jefferson

This quote from Jefferson is directly related to the previous blog entry. What Washington has done vindicates the sage of Montecello a thousand times over.

“The States can best govern our home concerns and the general government our foreign ones. I wish, therefore… never to see all offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold at market.”

Thomas Jefferson
