Lessons from Jefferson

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
I'm not sure if Thomas Jefferson was extremely prescient or if merely the more things change the more things stay the same. When I browse though his quotable quotes and it seems like he is speaking about current events.

What confuses me about the liberal agenda is that they profess distrust of the wealth and powerful, while consistently ignoring that government is run by the wealth and powerful and vesting in them more and more power.

Perhaps liberals and democrats should study Jefferson more thoroughly and take lessons from his distrust with power.
