What the Founders thought of the Constitution

I was going to go into a long rant about this, about how in the modern world you have to be willing to stand alone sometimes and do what is right. Not because of what a lawyer, or congressman or journalist might say, but because it's important and the right thing to do. I mean, who aside from me is grateful that the Isreali government is willing to do what is necessary in the Middle East when everyone else is tied down by world opinion? Probably lots. But I'll just let you read the opinion of Alexander Hamilton, courtesy of the Patriot Post Founders' Quote Daily:

"The circumstances that endanger the safety of nations are
infinite, and for this reason no constitutional shackles can wisely
be imposed on the power to which the care of it is committed. "

-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 23, 17 December 1787)
