Portrait of Thomas Jefferson painted in 1800 by Rembrandt Peale
“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
– Thomas Jefferson –
It would appear as if our nations Founding Fathers were either much more realistic or just so much smarter than the current bunch we have in charge. Let's begin moving towards Thomas Jefferson's vision of a small government for a country that can do big things!

In Mr. Myers article he includes a very telling [...]

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first." Thomas Jefferson
With all the debate these days about the debt limit and the "up and down" or the "clean" vote last night (01 June 2011) I thought this quote was quite relevant. Congress overwhelmingly voted to NOT increase the debt ce [...]
Here on AmericasNextPresident.com we try hard to reconcile today's and tomorrow's presidential actions with what the constitution allows and our founding fathers wanted for these United States of America. (more…) [...]
What do you want from Americas Next President as far as freedom and liberty?

"The unity of government which constitutes you one people, is also now dear to you. It is justly so. For it is the main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad, of your [...]
