George Washington On Constitutional Amendments

Posted by | December 5th, 2009

“…If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed…”

– George Washington (Washington’s Farewell Address 1796)
