The U.S. Constitution


Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804)
 June 25, 2001: Federalist Papers #78




"No legislative act contrary to the Constitution can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm

It is not to be supposed that the Constitution could intend to enable the representatives of the people to substitute their will to that of their constituents.

A Constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by judges as fundamental law. If there should happen to be a irreconcilable variance between the two, the Constitution is to be preferred to the statute."
