A free people will not trust government. A free people will require complete transparency. A free people will be self-sufficient. A free people understands that men are not angels. A free people knows that government that governs least governs best. A free people will always insist that the powers of government are limited, and the liberties of the people are unlimited.
“Distrust and caution are the parents of security.” - Benjamin Franklin
