John Adams

American statesman, diplomat and political theorist. A leading champion of independence in 1776, he was the second President of the United States (17971801)
The rich, the well-born, and the able, acquire an influence among the people that will soon be too much for simple honesty and plain sense, in a house of representatives. The most illustrious of them must, therefore, be separated from the mass, and placed by themselves in a senate; this is, to all honest and useful intents, an ostracism. /influence/ John Adams quotes
