The Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, Annals of America, 4:65-66

It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence, which prescribes limited Constitution to bind down those whom we obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go…

In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, BUT BIND HIM DOWN from Mischief by the chains of the Constitution. (The Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, Annals of America, 4:65-66)
