"Strength and Honor"

John Adams wrote in 1772: "There is danger from all men. The only maxim
of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to
endanger the public liberty." Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1799, "Free
government is founded in jealousy, not confidence.... Let no more be
heard of confidence in men, but bind him down from mischief by the
chains of the Constitutions."

...and this smug comment is from someone who claims that he can create
intelligent life out of plastic, sand and metal!
