Even Jefferson violated the Constitution
    #3086430 - 09/03/04 09:45 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

One little tidbit of history that makes me question how good a job a Constitution can really do in securing people's rights and limiting the size of government is the fact that Thomas Jefferson, probably the greatest thinker and advocate of liberty this country has ever had, violated the Constitution during his presidency with the Louisiana Purchase. The Constitution does not give the president the authority to purchase new land. Such a decision should have been made by Congress. So if we couldn't trust Jefferson to follow the Constitution, then who can we trust?
