Words of Wisdom from Thomas Jefferson

Unfortunately this is too long to be my signature but here are some words from Mr. Thomas Jefferson that some of our politicians need to see.

"On every question of construction (of the Constitution, let us) carry ourselves back to a time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one which it was passed." -Thomas Jefferson 1823
