• “And of fatal tendency . . . to put, in the place of the delegated will of the Nation, the will of a party – often a small but artful and enterprising minority . . . They are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to SUBVERT the POWER OF THE PEOPLE and to USURP for themselves the reins of Government; destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” ~George Washington, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796
