Quote of the day 5/3/08

Thomas Jefferson via Wikiquote,

I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.

From a letter to James Madison (January 30, 1787); referring to Shays’ Rebellion Lipscomb & Bergh ed. 6:65

(a tip of the conservative ball cap to Dad29).
