Quote of the day......

The fundamental source of all your errors, 

sophisms and false reasonings is 

a total ignorance of the natural rights of mankind. 

Were you once to become acquainted with these, 

you could never entertain a thought, 

that all men are not, by nature, 

entitled to a parity of privileges. 

You would be convinced, that natural liberty is 

a gift of the beneficent Creator to 

the whole human race, and 

that civil liberty is founded in that; and 

cannot be wrested from any people, 

without the most manifest violation of justice.

-- Alexander Hamilton
