Quote from Melancton Smith
"Congress will ever exercise their powers
to levy as much money as the people can pay.
They will not be restrained from direct taxes
by the consideration that necessity does not require them."
(1744-1798) opponent of Alexander Hamilton during New York's ratifying convention
