Thomas Jefferson - Kentucky Resolutions 1798:

3. "Resolved, That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to the Constitutions, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, our prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people";

and that NO power over the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press being delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, all lawful powers respecting the same did of right remain, and were reserved to the States or the people:

that thus was manifested their determination to retain to themselves the right of judging how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged without lessening their useful freedom, and how far those abuses which cannot be separated from their use should be tolerated, rather than the use be destroyed.

And thus also they guarded against ALL abridgment by the United States of the freedom of religious opinions and exercises, and retained to themselves the right of "PROTECTING THE SAME",

as this STATE, by a law passed on the general demand of its CITIZENS, HAD ALREADY PROTECTED THEM FROM 'ALL' HUMAN RESTRAINT" OR INTERFERENCE".

And that in addition to this "GENERAL PRINCIPLE" and EXPRESS DECLARATION",

"ANOTHER" and more special provision has been made by "ONE OF THE AMENDMENTS" to the Constitution, which expressly DECLARES, that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press":

thereby guarding in the same sentence, and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press:

insomuch, that whatever violated either, throws down the sanctuary which covers the others, arid that libels, falsehood, and defamation, equally with heresy and false religion,

are WITHHELD from the cognizance of federal (AND STATE) tribunals.

That, therefore, the act of Congress of the United States, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," which does abridge the freedom of the press, is "NOT LAW", but is "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE".

Mr. GEORGE NICHOLAS,: ...

"But the"COMMON LAW"is"NOT EXCLUDED".There is"NOTHING" in "that paper"(APP Note: referring to the US Constitution being considered) to warrant the assertion."…..

"….A bill of rights is only an acknowledgment of the PREEXISTING CLAIM TO RIGHTS IN THE PEOPLE

They BELONG TO US AS MUCH as if they had been inserted in the Constitution."…..

(INALIENABLE COMMON LAW RIGHTS INCLUDES ALL STATE CONSTITUTIONS AS WELL)…..
