Quote of the day....

That frequent recurrence to fundamental principles, 

and a firm adherence to justice, moderation, 

temperance,industry and frugality, 

are absolutely necessary to  preserve 

the blessings of liberty, 

and keep government free. 

The people ought, therefore, 

to pay particular attention to these points, 

in the choice of officers and representatives, 

and  have a right to exact a due 

and constant regard to them, 

from their legislators and magistrates, 

in the making and executing such laws as are 

necessary for the good government of the State.

-- Vermont Declaration of Rights
