It had become painfully obvious to any historian that government was the worst of all evils. They only pursued their own self-interest and in the process, like, liberty and the pursuit of happiness all vanished. America was founded to reestablish LIBERTY, here we have come full circle. Jefferson wrote in a letter a famous line that sums up everything:
“if we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.”
Letter of Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Cooper, November 29th, 1802.
Unfortunately, history repeats because the passions of man never change. What we are headed into with this Sovereign Debt Crisis is something we simply are compelled to do.
