He Said That? 6/29/17

From John Adams (1735-1826), American lawyer, author, statesman, and diplomat. He served as the second President of the United States (1797–1801), the first Vice President (1789–1797), and as a Founding Father was a leader of American independence from Great Britain. From notes for an oration at Braintree (Spring, 1772):

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
