Quote from James Smith,

"It is a general maxim that all governments find a use for as much money as they can raise. Indeed, they have commonly demands for more...I take this as a settled truth, that they will all spend as much as their revenue; that is, will live up to their income."


James Smith (more quotes by James Smith or books by/about James Smith)


Massachusetts, during the debates to ratify the U.S. Constitution
