Was Thomas Jefferson a Prophet?

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”   —  Thomas Jefferson

Have you noticed that your representatives are not really listening to you?  As astronauts left too long in orbit loose the ability to bear their own weight, politicians left too long in office lose the ability to listen to their constituents.   Instead, they develop the attitude that they know best.  Your opinion, if different from theirs, will be considered uninformed (or something less flattering).

What do you think? Why?
