Famous Quote from William Ellery Channing 

"The cry has been that when war is declared,
all opposition should therefore be hushed.
A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could hardly be propagated.
If the doctrine be admitted, rulers have only to declare war
and they are screened at once from scrutiny."
