Certainly the Government of the United States is a limited government, and so is every State government a limited government. With us this idea of limitation spreads through every form of administration general, State, and municipal and rests on the great distinguishing principle of the recognition of the rights of man. The ancient republics absorbed the individual in the state prescribed his religion and controlled his activity. The American system rests on the assertion of the equal right of every man to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, to freedom of conscience, to the culture and exercise of all his faculties. As a consequence the State government is limited as to the General Government in the interest of union, as to the individual citizen in the interest of freedom. Andrew Johnson
