In her essay on Federalist #62, Janine Turner identifies a quote that is very relevant today:

“The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action n; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?”

Question for Monday, March 10: Please list another quote in Federalist #62 that Janine mentions in her essay as relevant or profound.

For today only, the first five to post a quote from Federalist #62 that Janine cites as relevant or profound win a free copy of Constituting America National Youth Director, Juliette Turner’s Our Constitution Rocks and all are entered in our final drawing!

    “What indeed are all the repealing, explaining and amending laws, which fill and disgrace our voluminous codes, but so many monuments of deficient wisdom.”

    “’Another effect of public instability is the unreasonable advantage it gives to the sagacious, the enterprising, and the moneyed few over the industrious and uniformed mass of the people.’”I think that in this case, the “moneyed few” are the corporations, and it is relevant today in how congress, and the president are swayed by their money in support of bills that protect that corporation from free market competition, and consumers from being informed about the quality of their finished products sold to retailers.
