Image Quotes about Constitutional




Gouverneur Morris - [In 1787, delegates to the constitutional convention determined that the Senate alone, and not the executive, had the power to nominate and confirm judicial nominees. But by the end of the convention, the framers' views had evolved. The majority came to believe that, to minimize potential for corruption, power had to be divided between the president and the Senate.] As the president was to nominate, ... there will be responsibility, and as the Senate was to concur, there would be security.

Jello Biafra  - The United States has been declared under martial law...All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
