stated in his Inaugural Address, March 4, 1841:

It is in periods like this that it behooves the people to
be most watchful of those to whom they have intrusted power

Washington stated further:
"One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution,

what cannot be directly overthrown ...
It is indeed little else than a name, where the Government is too feeble to withstand the enterprises of faction ...
I have already intimated to you the
danger of Parties

Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the
spirit of Party,
This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its roots in
the strongest passions
of the human Mind.
It exists under different shapes in all Governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the

Justice Hugo Black
Griswold v. Connecticut
(1965) to Justice William O. Douglass' discovery of "penumbras" of meanings from "emanations" of provisions in the Bill of Rights, thus creating a "right of privacy" which led to abortion:
"One of the most effective ways of ... expanding a constitutionally guaranteed right is to substitute for the crucial word or words ... another word or words, more or less flexible ...
'Privacy' is a broad, abstract and ambiguous concept which can ... easily be interpreted as a constitutional ban on many things ...
No provision of the Constitution specifically gives such blanket power to courts to ... hold unconstitutional those laws which they believe unwise or dangerous ...
(To do so) takes away from Congress and States the power to make laws ... and transfers that power to the Court for ultimate determination."
stated in his First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1817:
"Under this Constitution ... the States, respectively protected by the
National Government under a mild, parental system against foreign dangers,
enjoying within their separate spheres, by a wise partition of power ...
It is only
when the people become ignorant and corrupt
, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising the sovereignty.
Usurpation is then an easy attainment,
a usurper soon found.
The people themselves become the willing instruments of
their own debasement and ruin

"The germ of
dissolution of our federal government

At the Constitutional Convention, June 2, 1787, Ben Franklin gave an address "Dangers of a Salaried Bureaucracy":
"There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh -- get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever.
It will be said that we do not propose to establish kings ... but there is a natural inclination in mankind to kingly government ... They would rather have one tyrant than five hundred. It gives more of the appearance of equality among citizens; and that they like.
I am apprehensive ... that the government of the States may, in future times, end in a monarchy. But this catastrophe ... may be long delayed, if in our proposed system we do not sow the
seeds of contention, faction, and tumult,
by making our posts of honor places of profit. If we do, I fear that ... it will only nourish the fetus of a king ... and a king will the sooner be set over us."

The necessity of

"If in the opinion of the People, the distribution or
modification of the Constitutional powers
be in any way particular wrong,
let it be corrected by an amendment
in the way which the Constitution designates.

; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good,
it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.

Washington continued with what could be considered a warning regarding globalists:
