Quote of the Day

“The Senate and House of Representatives form mutual checks on each other, and the President on both.  Cato’s apprehensions of Monarchy are chimerical, in the highest degree; and calculated in the same manner as what he says of the rich oppressing and grinding the poor – to catch the attention of the unwary multitude.”

“Americanus”  (John Stevens, Jr.) as published in the Daily Advertiser (New York) November 2, 1787
