"I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter -- from the inattention

"I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter -- from the inattention of the people to the concerns of their
government. From their carelessness and negligence I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct. That in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent and they will be vigilant. Give them the means of detecting the wrong and they will apply the remedy."
-- Daniel Webster, 1837--
