Quote from Thomas Jefferson,

"I could think of no worse example for nations abroad,
who for the first time were trying
to put free electoral procedures into effect,
than that of the United States wrangling
over the results of our presidential election,
and even suggesting that the presidency itself
could be stolen by thievery at the ballot box."


Thomas Jefferson (more quotes by Thomas Jefferson or books by/about Thomas Jefferson)

(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President
