The rest depends on a man’s own industry and virtue.” “If a European has previously resolved to go to the western country near the Allegheny or Ohio rivers,…a few day journey will bring him to Cumberland…from whence the public road begun by the United States, crosses the mountains…” “You will, however, observe that the privileges of citizenship is not granted without proper precautions; to secure that, while the worthy are admitted, the unworthy should, if practicable, be rejected. You will from hence deduce the importance of good moral habits, even to the acquisition of political rights.” - Clements Burleigh, Shamrock Society of New York, “Advice to Emigrants to America,” 1817

17 Thomas Jefferson Alexander Hamilton On POPULAR RULE (1743 – 1826)Alexander Hamilton(1757 – 1804)On POPULAR RULE“One great error is that we suppose mankind more honest than they are.”On STATES RIGHTS“A firm Union will be of the utmost moment the peace and liberty of the states, as a barrier against domestic faction and insurrection.”On REBELLIONBeware, my dear sir, of [insurrection]. Whenever the government appears in arms, it ought to appear like a Hercules, and inspire respect by the display of strength.”On POPULAR RULE“I have great confidence in the common sense of mankind in general.”On STATES RIGHTS“I am not a friend to very energetic government. It is always oppressive.On REBELLION“A little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical… It is a medicine necessary for the health of government.”

20 Alexander HamiltonConstitutionality of the Bank of the United States (1791)“It is not denied that there are implied as well as express powers, and that the former are as effectually delegated as the latter.” “It is conceded that implied powers are to be considered as delegated equally with express ones. Then it follows, that as a power of erecting a corporation [such as a bank] may as well be implied as any other thing, it may as well be employed as an instrument or means of carrying into execution any of the specified powers…But one may be erected in relation to the trade with foreign countries, or to the trade between the States…because it is the province of the federal government to regulate those objects, and because it is incident to a general sovereign or legislative power to regulate a thing, to employ all the means which relate to its regulation to the best and greatest advantage.”
