Reader comments about this quote:
Unlimited power can not be confided to any government; BECAUSE, no individual sovereign lawfully has such power to confide. Unlimited power, as exemplified by the current police state is much more than an usurpation. Such despotic tyranny is more closely tied to a god's creation of evil. Said "evil" has not only impaired, but destroyed the powers confided to the de jure state governments

    We battle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places ! When the wicked rule the people suffer from oppression, undue unnatural law. Shall they quarter troops in all our homes now ?
