Frugal Government

"A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned." ~ Thomas Jefferson

I like that, "frugal government", and Tom meant frugal not just in the monetary sense but in the governmental sense as well.

That is the proper thing... Governments should tread lightly in the affairs of citizens not stomp around like Gulliver in Lilliput.
