Quote of the Day!

"Here, in strictness, the people surrender nothing, and as they retain every thing, they have no need of particular reservations...For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do?" -- Alexander Hamilton

(Hamilton explains in Federalist Paper #84 how the rights of the people are not granted by the government, but are pre-ordained, unalienable and cannot be usurped by a regulatory power claiming powers it does not have, nor were granted by the sovereignty of the people.)
