Another Good Jefferson Quote (like there was any apparent end to them)

“It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power. … Our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go. … In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” –Thomas Jefferson: Draft Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.”
