Quote of the Day (Founding Father George Mason, on Corruption and Government)

“If we do not provide against corruption, our government will soon be at an end; nor would I wish to put a man of virtue in the way of temptation.”—George Mason (1725-1792), Virginia delegate to the Constitutional Convention, in The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, Vol. 1, edited by Jonathan Elliot (1863)
