Government was not to be a Matter of Self-Appointed Rulers, Governing by Whim or Harsh Ideology

Ronald Reagan

“The Founding Fathers established a system which meant a radical break from that which preceded it. A written constitution would provide a permanent form of government, limited in scope, but effective in providing both liberty and order. Government was not to be a matter of self-appointed rulers, governing by whim or harsh ideology. It was not to be government by the strongest or for the few. Our principles were revolutionary.” – Ronald Reagan
