Back: “In the creation of the federal government, the states exercised the highest act of sovereignty, and they may, if they please, repeat the proof of their sovereignty, by its annihilation.

“A power to take from a nation, and give to itself, is the strict definition of civilized tyranny..”
“A nation oppressed by taxes can never be generous, benevolent, or enlightened.” ~ John Taylor of Caroline
