Founders’ Quote Daily

“But ambitious encroachments of the federal government, on the authority of the State governments, would not excite the opposition of a single State, or of a few States only. They would be signals of general alarm… But what degree of madness could ever drive the federal government to such an extremity.”

— James Madison (Federalist No. 46, 29 January 1788)
