31. True

But I like to take the spirit of his words rather than the precise parsing. He also envisioned a representative government too, which thanks to gerrymandering I don't think we have anymore. And just how's that ole "Checks and Balances" thing working out, hum? Maybe his , and the other Founding Fathers GOAL was "let's construct a government where people DON'T feel a need to rebel in this manner", but the reality is ,IMHO, is that THAT ideal is slipping away from us. I for one am getting tired of those of us on the left side of the political spectrum just bending over , smiling and asking for some more of the same screwing we take from those who oppress us.
