JOHN CALDWELL CALHOUN
American statesman
(1782 - 1850)

A power has arisen up in the Government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.
      - in the United States Senate [Government]

Protection and patriotism are reciprocal.
      - in a speech delivered in the House of Representatives
        [Politics]

The very essence of a free government consists in considering offices as public trusts, bestowed for the good of the country, and not for the benefit of an individual or a party.
      - in a speech [Public Trust]

I never use the word "nation" in speaking of the United States. I always use the word "Union" or "Confederacy." We are not a nation but a union, a confederacy of equal and sovereign States.
      - To Oliver Dyer [Unity]
