On Government by Representation

This is a government by representation. Our fellow citizens have chosen us to stand in their stead. They have chosen us to exercise our abilities in their behalf, to make decisions which they cannot personally be present to make, and to do the work which they cannot personally be present to do. This is the highest duty of American Citizenship. Let us discharge it as becomes American Citizens.
