IN THREE VOLUMES
The government of the Union, like that of each State, must be able to address itself immediately to the hopes and fears of individuals; and to attract to its support those passions which have the strongest influence upon the human heart. It must, in short, possess all the means and have a right to resort to all the methods of executing the powers with which it is entrusted that are possessed and exercised by the governments of the particular States. -Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist, No. XVI. December 4, 1787.
