Today's government vs The Founders

Our country was built upon ideals such as those espoused by Thomas Jefferson, who said:
“A wise and frugal government….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” And today's government is formed by men that would rearrange that statement more like this:

‎"An ignorant and profilgate government .....shall free men to injure one another with assistance from a burgeoning legal system, shall restrict the liberty of their own profitable endeavours and attempts to improve upon the lives of others..., and will take, by force, from the mouths of the laborers, the bread and the fruits of those labors and redistribute them to those who will not nor cannot do for themselves and provide a meager subservient existance for the same. This is the sum of current government." - Doug Harman
