regarding The Constitution…

“I do indeed believe in this cause. This cause it right, it is just, it is good, it is true. But I must, never the less, confess a great fear: there may one day come a generation, rooted not in the principals that gave rise to our liberty, who will take these phrases and these articles which we have so carefully drafted, and twist them and make them into something that we could not have imagined.”

-George Washington
in a letter to Alexander Hamilton
