Founders' Daily Quote: 31 Oct 08

"I acknowledge, in the ordinary course of government, that the exposition of the laws and Constitution devolves upon the judicial. But I beg to know upon what principle it can be contended that any one department draws from the Constitution greater powers than another in marking out the limits of the powers of the several departments."

--James Madison (speech in the Congress of the United States, 17 June 1789); Reference: Original Intent, Barton (264); original The Debates and Proceedings in the Congress of the United States, vol. 1 (520).

Good question. Hopefully someday they'll answer it but not this day.


May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
