Back: “…that the Constitution of the United States is, in fact, a compact, to which each (sovereign) State is a party…and that the several States have a right to judge of its infractions; and in the case of a deliberate and dangerous exercise of power not delegated, they have the right, in the last resort, to use the language of the Virginia Resolutions, “to interpose for arresting of evil, and for maintaining, within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them. This right…I conceive to be the fundamental principles of our system.” – John C. Calhoun, Fort Hill Address, July 26, 1831
