A Long Train of Abuses and Usurpations

This list of links is inspired by Thomas Jefferson.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed.

But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.

Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.

Thomas Jefferson
The Declaration of Independence

We don't need to alter our system of government. We need to return it to the duties assigned by the Constitution. This list is documentation of the poor job our elected employes have been doing of sticking to their assigned tasks.
