Quotes Which Hold True Today

"Unnecessary laws are not good laws, but traps for money. -- Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan, 1651"
 "The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home." -- James Madison "
 " Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. -- Thomas Jefferson"
"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? -
Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address March 4, 1801"
Now use those quotes and think of ID cards, climate change, terror laws, 'benefits' and the need for minimal government!

Do feel free though to add to the initial examples!
