SECESSION AND CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY

VOLUME I

[merged small][ocr errors]

CONSTITUTIONAL

LIBERTY

In Which Is Shown the Right of a Nation to Secede from
a Compact of Federation and That Such Right
Is Necessary to Constitutional Liberty

and a Surety of Union

BY

BUNFORD SAMUEL

Volume I

“Construction furnishes many other arguments in favour of the con-
solidating school; ... it supplies a vast mass of precedents and
argumentation for removing collisions between the state and federal
governments, and for proving the efficiency of a concentrated supremacy;
to which I confess that only one poor observation can be opposed,
namely, that if the state and federal governments may be occasionally
scratched by the mutual check resulting from the division of powers, it
may still be considered as the only brier which bears the rose called
liberty, able to impart that rare flavour to our political nose-gay, highly
agreeable to some people, but very offensive to others.”

- JOHN TAYLOR, of Caroline, “New Views on the Constitution."
