I stumbled across this quote one day and thought it was simply superb. "The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased." Alexander Hamilton Once again, this reinforces the fact that the Constitution does not grant rights, but protects those rights which are inherent in mankind. It restricts the power of government, not the individual. And while hope seems a foolish thing these days, I do sincerely hope that someone will take a hold of this message and run for office. Best of luck to those who rise to the occasion!
