Quote from James Madison 

"Each State, in ratifying the Constitution,
is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others,
and only to be bound by its own voluntary act.
In this relation, then, the new Constitution will,
if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution."

James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

Federalist No. 39, 1788
