|If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair. -- , Federalist No. 29|
Truth is violated by falsehood,
but it is outraged by silence.
Please help the LIFE issue by calling the president at 202-456-1111, or e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org, and asking him to pick judicial nominees, like Scalia and Thomas as he promised in his campaigns. While the president is not perfect, so far, he has kept his campaign promises.
