The course to the destruction of the Republic

"Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence. The engine of consolidation will be the Federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and the corrupted."

Thomas Jefferson, 1821 (from P. 87 of The Assault on Reason)
