It becomes all therefore who are friends of a Government based on free principles… --James Madison

It becomes all therefore who are friends of a Government based on free principles to reflect, that by denying the possibility of a system partly federal and partly consolidated, and who would convert ours into one either wholly federal or wholly consolidated, in neither of which forms have individual rights, public order, and external safety, been all duly maintained, they aim a deadly blow at the last hope of true liberty on the face of the Earth.

James Madison

Year: 1835
Context: Notes on Nullification
Tags: external safety, government based on free principles, individual rights, last hope of true liberty, partly federal and partly consolidated, public order, they aim a deadly blow, true liberty, wholly federal or wholly consolidated
