The 1776 Firecracker

"Government should restrain men from injuring one another, but leave them otherwise free to follow their own pursuits of industry and employment" - Thomas Jefferson, March 4, 1801. When the founders of this Nation threw off the yoke of government control of individual enterprise, the American way of life was born. It grew to maturity in a climate free of bureaucratic domination. Jefferson's words are timeless. They are as true today as they were more than an century and a half ago. They are his answer to those who advocate the "security" of the "welfare" state at the cost of individual opportunity and free enterprise." 

Good Reading Rack Service, 1955
