"They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." --Benjamin Franklin,
Historical Review of Pennyslvania, 1759
That quote is frequently miscredited. Jefferson said this:
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain
occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive." --Thomas Jefferson
"That government is best which governs the least, because its people
discipline themselves." --Thomas Jefferson
