Capitol Spring Aphorism #85

“Man is not made for the State but the State for man and it derives its just powers only from the consent of the governed.”

THOMAS JEFFERSON

It had been a beautiful day walking around the Capitol and enjoying the fresh colors of blooming trees, the brisk wind and the bright sky, all gifts of this wonderful Spring. I wish our politicians would also renew their commitment to the public good and remember what Thomas Jefferson said quoted above.
