Thoughts On The Body Politic


After the passage of the Sedition Act in 1798, Thomas Jefferson wrote these words:

A little patience and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt . . . If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake.

Pretty much sums up my feelings about the state of the nation right now.

Nice picture. Sums up my feelings too.
