"Landholders ought to have a share in the government
to support these invaluable interests and check the other many.
They ought to be so constituted as to protect the minority
of the opulent against the majority."
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
Max Farrand, ed., The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787, 3rd ed., vol. I., p. 422
