Founders' Quote Daily
"The State governments possess inherent advantages, which will ever give them an influence and ascendancy over the National Government, and will for ever preclude the possibility of federal encroachments. That their liberties, indeed, can be subverted by the federal head, is repugnant to every rule of political calculation."
-- Alexander Hamilton (speech to the New York Ratifying Convention,
17 June 1788)
