("We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.")
"Let us not insult the free and gallant citizens of America with the suspicion, that they would be less able to defend the rights of which they would be in actual possession, than the debased subjects of arbitrary power would be to rescue theirs from the hands of their oppressors.

"
James Madison, Federalist number 46
