• “On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” ~Thomas Jefferson (explained to Supreme Court Justice William Johnson, June 12, 1823)
