" Jefferson offered one of the earliest formulations of the sentiment, although not of the phrase. In 1803, Thomas Jefferson's ambassadors to France arranged the purchase of the Louisiana territory in conflict with Jefferson's personal belief that the Constitution did not bestow upon the federal government the right to acquire or possess foreign territory. Due to political considerations, however, Jefferson disregarded his constitutional doubts, signed the proposed treaty, and sent it to the Senate for ratification. In justifying his actions, he later wrote: "[a] strict observance of the written law is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to the written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the ends to the means.""
Note: I heard a call into the Thom Hartmann show the other day bring up this great point - after Thom was demonizing those asserting their right to bear arms. Thom: message from one of the masses: you are being recorded - and if I were you - I'd be worried because Tarring and Feathering is becoming the latest fad - and if you, as a Zionist, think for a second that Americans fear Israel, the Mossad, or any other group of pussies you support - you will find how sadly mistaken you really are.
