"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 must confess that 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 June 1, 1837

Are you observant enough to be watching?

What remedy will you apply?
