"tho I cordially wish well to the progress of liberty in all nations, and would forever give it the weight of our countenance, yet they are not to be touched without contamination from their other bad principles. Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto."
-Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Lomax, Mar. 12, 1799
