Excerpt from History of the Union, and of the Constitution
Daniel webster declared that The quantity of liberty we possess is precisely equal to the quantity of restraint which we put upon the government. And this is the rule. If the Government is restrained from put ting its hand in certain particulars upon you, to that ex tent you are free, and no more. All liberty, therefore, consists in putting such a restraint upon your govern ment that it cannot touch your rights or your liberties.
