False Quote from Thomas Jefferson,

"The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history,
whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite."


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


False quote. Appeared in print in a 1980 tract on regulation by Bernard Siegan, a law professor, after quoting Jefferson's well-known epistle to John Adams about different kinds of aristocracy, Siegan wrote: "In other words, man should be allowed to govern himself, and he should not be ruled by a small elite."
