    "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
    -Benjamin Franklin

    "All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse."
    -Benjamin Franklin

    "If Virtue & Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great Security." Samuel Adams to James Warren. February 12, 1779.

    "It does not take a majority to prevail..but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men" Samuel Adams - American PATRIOT



    "In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be at any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; though this may in one instance be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."
    -George Washington
