  5. 5. Peaceful Transition of PowerWe are all Republicans, we are all Federalists. If there be any among us who wouldwish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form, let them standundisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be toleratedwhere reason is left free to combat it. I know, indeed, that some honest men fear that arepublican government can not be strong, that this Government is not strong enough;but would the honest patriot, in the full tide of successful experiment, abandon agovernment which has so far kept us free and firm on the theoretic and visionary fearthat this Government, the worlds best hope, may by possibility want energy topreserve itself? I trust not. I believe this, on the contrary, the strongest Governmenton earth. I believe it the only one where every man, at the call of the law, would fly tothe standard of the law, and would meet invasions of the public order as his ownpersonal concern. Sometimes it is said that man can not be trusted with thegovernment of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Orhave we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer thisquestion. --Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801
