United States Responsibility


A view of the citizens of the United States responsibility.

This responsibility is for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society. If justice, good faith, honor, gratitude, and all the other qualities which enable the character of a nation and fulfill the ends of government be the fruits of our establishments, the cause of liberty will acquire a dignity and luster which it has never yet enjoyed, and an example will be set which cannot but have the most favorable influence on the rights of mankind. If on the other side, our governments should be unfortunately blotted with the reverse of these cardinal and essential virtues, the great cause which we have engaged to vindicate will be dishonored and betrayed; the last and fairest experiment in favor of the rights of human nature will be turned against them, and their patrons and friends exposed to be insulted and silenced by the votaries of tyranny and usurpation.

Indeed, I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.
