This is a very appropriate quote from a Founder of the Country. Perhaps, in the words of cliffelam, the "Donks" (and I was one at one time) and Progressives should really educate themselves on the meaning of "Original Intent" instead of the Progressive "drool" we hear spouted from the academic elite about the Constitution and the "original intent" (most of which, these days, were hippies from a prior generation who couldn't make a business run successfully if they had to and have to rely on "tenure" (that great bastion of mediocrity, un-creativity, intolerance for opposing opinions, and ludicrous unproductive union inventions" to keep their jobs).
No compact among men... can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, which no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other….George Washington, draft of First Inaugural Address, April 1789
Boundless ambition is more than "Wall Street Greed or Government Political Greed", but the view that I am right and everyone who disagrees is a mindless, right-wing, uneducated, unintelligent, biased, and bigoted moron; you know like Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and Wilber Wilberforce, and Fredrich Hayek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Hayek).
As for morals, "Oh, there are none - I decide on my own - there are no absolutes or inalienable rights"! I am the center of the universe! "There is no God, only the great ME!"
