We are already greater than the King wishes us to be Belo Horizonte Metro Map , and will he not hereafter endeavor to make us less? To bring the matter to one Belo Horizonte Metro Map point, is the power jealous of our prosperity, a proper power to govern us? Whosoever says No to this question is an independent, for independency means no more than this, whether we shall make our own laws, or whether the king, the greatest enemy which this continent hath, or can have, shall tell us, There shall be no laws but such as I like . But where, say some, is the king of Country?
I’ll tell you, friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the Royal Brute of Great Britain . Let it be brought forth placed on the divine law, the Word of God; let a crown be placed thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in Country THE LAW IS KING. For in absolute governments the king is law, so in free countries the law ought to BE king, and there ought to be no other. But lest any ill use should afterwards arise, let the crown at the conclusion of the ceremony be demolished . A government of our own is our natural right; and when a man seriously reflects on the precariousness of human affairs, he will become convinced, that it is infinitely wiser and safer to form a constitution of our own in a cool deliberate manner, while we have it in our power, than to trust such an interesting event to time and chance .
