Excerpt from A Defence of the Measures of the Administration of Thomas Jefferson: Taken From the National IntelligencerThe period draws near, when you will be called upon to exercise one of the highest functions with which freemen can be invested. - They alone deserve the name who chuse their own rulers, and through them make their own laws. This is your prerogative! May it long remain so, whatever the infatuation and folly of other nations! And while we pity the low state to which their ignorance and a tyrant's wrongs have reduced them, let us cherish, with the zeal of our fathers, the lofty sentiments of freedom, sealed with their blood.Devoted to liberty and justice, the history of the world should teach you as you wish to preserve them, to be jealous and vigilant. It should teach you that rulers are more apt to be tyrants than servants: and that, with whatever sanctity they may declare themselves the friends and guardians of your rights, they are most apt, under this insidious mask, to subvert them by a criminal career of ambition. It is true, that they generally flatter to betray you; and that while they are busied in the immolation of liberty, they are loudest in its praise.As then you value your rights, examine with an unbending severity the conduct of your rulers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
