The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

Quote of the Day, 1/23/2012--Tench Coxe (repost)

"The Pennsylvanian", Tench Coxe

Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, 

and as military forces, which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, 

the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.--Tench Coxe
