3584. GOVERNMENTS (American), Powers.—

An elective despotism was not the
government we fought for, but one which
should not only be founded on true free principles,
but in which the powers of government
should be so divided and balanced among
general bodies of magistracy, as that no one
could transcend their legal limits without
being effectually checked and restrained by
the others.—
