• “The dangers of a concentration of all power in the General government of a confederacy so vast as ours are too obvious to be disregarded. You have a right . . . to expect your agents in every department to regard strictly the limits imposed upon them by the Constitution . . . Liberty rests upon a proper distribution of power between the State and Federal authorities.” ~Franklin Pierce, March 4, 1853, Inaugural Address
