Parasites In Government


“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.”

–Thomas Jefferson, letter to Thomas Cooper, 29 November 1802

This was written 200+ years ago.  Can you imagine what Jefferson would say if he saw our government today.  Can you imagine what would happen if  a politician had the guts to make such a comment today.
