Thomas Jefferson one of our best-known champions of constitutional democracy, believed in the common sence of the people and the flowering possibilities of the human spirit. Jefferson warned that every government degenerates when it is left only in the hands of rulers. The people themselves, Jefferson wrote, are the only safe repositories of government. P. E. Harrell
