Paraphrasing Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said:

“A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”

NotYourDaddy says:

“Get your hand out of my pocket and leave me alone!”
