February 22, 1734 - December 14, 1799
"If in the opinion of the People, the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instument of good, it is the custonary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."source: Farewell Address, September 17, 1796.majority vote, constitution, rights, freedom, gonverment
