John Adams

October 30, 1735 - July 04, 1826
"It has ever been my hobby-horse to see rising in America an empire of liberty, and a prospect of two or three hundred millions of freemen, without one noble or one king among them. You say it is impossible. If I should agree with you in this, I would still say, let us try the experiment, and preserve our equality as long as we can."source: To Count Sarsfield, February 3, 1786.liberty, freedom, freemen, king, monarchy, democracy, equality, republic
