“It may well happen that the public voice, pronounced by the representatives of the people, will be more constant to the public good than if pronounced by the people themselves.” – James Madison
Isaiah 25:8-9 – He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and ke will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
On this day in history:
