Thomas Jefferson expressed:
“The constitutions of most of our states assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and their duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property and freedom of the press.”
“What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?”
“When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property.”
“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”
“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.”
“Still one thing more, my fellow citizens, a wise and frugal government, which shall refrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor, the fruit it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
“When the government fears the people, you have freedom. When the people fear the government, you have tyranny.”
