Liberty, Markets, and Federalism

  • Thomas R. Dye


In the compound republic of America, the power surrendered by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each subdivided among distinct and separate departments. Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself(Federalist, Number 51).
