We have erased segregation in those areas of national life to which Federal authority clearly extends. So doing in this, my friends, we have neither sought nor claimed partisan credit, and all such actions are nothing more -- nothing less than the rendering of justice. And we have always been aware of this great truth: the final battle against intolerance is to be fought -- not in the chambers of any legislature -- but in the hearts of men.
The New Deal also came to the rescue of mortaged farmers and city-dwellers by taking steps to prevent foreclosures, then dreadfully common; the Federal government, in essence, underwrote both the lenders and the borrowers.
As your governor, I shall resist any illegal Federal court order, even to the point of standing at the schoolhouse door in person, if necessary.george wallace
Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American... [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the Federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.tench coxe
Neither Federal nor state government acts compatibly with equal protection when a law or official policy denies to women, simply because they are women, full citizenship stature - equal opportunity to aspire, achieve, participate in and contribute to society based on their individual talents and capacities.ruth bader ginsburg
If the Federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify.Alexander Hamilton
I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces.dwight Eisenhower
Examining the organization and function of the Federal Reserve Banks, and applying the relevant factors, we conclude that the Reserve Banks are not Federal instrumentalities for purposes of the FTCA [Federal Tort Claims Act], but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations.
Cotton seed oil has been in common use since the middle of the nineteenth century and achieved GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) status under the United States Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act because of its common use prior to 1958 (ANZFA 2002). It is used in a variety of products including edible vegetable oils and margarine , soap , and plastics .
The unwelcomed, unwanted, unwarranted, and force-induced intrusion upon the campus of the University of Alabama today of the might of the central government offers frightful example of the oppression of the rights, privileges and sovereignty of this state by officers of the Federal government.george wallace
The President, and government, will only control the militia when a part of them is in the actual service of the Federal government, else, they are independent and not under the command of the president or the government. The states would control the militia, only when called out into the service of the state, and then the governor would be commander in chief where enumerated in the respective state constitution.Alexander Hamilton
It is imperative to take the initiative, to build firewalls around Alberta, to limit the extent to which an aggressive and hostile Federal government can encroach upon legitimate provincial jurisdiction.stephen harper
The property qualifications for Federal office that the framers of the Constitution expressly chose to exclude for demonstrating an unseemly "veneration of wealth " are now de facto in force and higher than the Founding Fathers could have imagined.bill moyers
Just what instrumentalities of either a state or the Federal government are exempt from taxation by the other cannot be stated in terms of universal application.harlan f. stone
It is imperative to take the initiative, to build firewalls around Alberta, to limit the extent to which an aggressive and hostile Federal government can encroach upon legitimate provincial jurisdiction.
"Oklahoma City bombing was done on purpose. Did you know the Federal Government blew up their own building to blame it on the militias and to get rid of some people that weren't cooperating with the system?"kent hovind
The exceptional nature of its limitations places in a strong light the general conception that liberty of the press, historically considered and taken up by the Federal Constitution, has meant, principally, although not exclusively, immunity from previous restraints or censorship.charles evans hughes
As soon as Mr. [Franklin] Roosevelt took office, the Federal Reserve began to buy government securities at the rate of ten million dollars a week for 10 weeks, and created one hundred million dollars in new currency, which alleviated the critical famine of money and credit, and the factories started hiring people again.
The President can exercise no power which cannot be fairly and reasonably traced to some specific grant of power … in the Federal Constitution or in an act of Congress passed in pursuance thereof. There is no undefined residuum of power which he can exercise because it seems to him to be in the public interest.william howard taft
I do not believe that all of these problems can be solved just by a new law, or something that someone says, with teeth in it. For example, when we got into the Little Rock thing, it was not my province to talk about segregation or desegregation. I had the job of supporting a Federal court that had issued a proper order under the Constitution, and where compliance was prevented by action that was unlawful.
Far from being pro-Unionist, I do not want Ireland to be part of the United Kingdom. But, as a Wolfe Tone republican, I feel I have a firm duty to defend the rights of Protestants and Dissenters to do their own thing until such time as we can persuade them their future is in a Federal Ireland.eoghan harris
When I had been appointed to the Cabinet in 1967, I had been struck by the amateurism that reigned in the upper echelons of the Federal government.pierre trudeau
Resisting overreaching by the Federal government is appropriate and, yes, even patriotic.russ feingold
I believe that the human race has developed a form of collective schizophrenia in which we are not only the slaves to this imposed thought behavior, but we are also the police force of it. The reason most people don't express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of the Federal reserve, It's what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.david icke
I don't think the Federal government has a role in your children's education.rick perry
All provisions of Federal, state or local law requiring or permitting discrimination in public education must yield.
The ACLU has long argued that veterans and their families should be free to choose religious symbols on military headstones whether Crosses, Stars of David, Pentacles, or other symbols and that the government should not be permitted to restrict such religious expression in Federal cemeteries.
