"Our legislators are not sufficiently apprised of the rightful limits of their powers; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us."
- Thomas Jefferson
I often wonder what the Founders would be saying if they were among us today to see the actions of our politicians. To say they would be aghast at these malignant narcissists who think they exist to rule over us is a gross understatement I think.
And man, how I wish Henry Louis Mencken were alive and writing today.
