On the Fact that a Contingent of Supposedly Liberty-Minded and Patriotic Men (John Adams, Theodore Sedgwick, Jonathan Dayton, Alexander Hamilton, Samuel Chase, George Washington, Roger Griswold, John Jay, etc.) Ultimately Got Behind Something as Repugnant as the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 (a Fascistic Series of Legislative Acts Which Gave the President the Power to Imprison and/or Deport People Without a Trial and Which All but Outlawed Speech that Was Unsupportive of the Government)

Power corrupts and it apparently corrupts everyone. A perfect example right here.
