“That the supreme power, therefore, should be vested in the people, is in my judgement the great panacea of human politics. It is a power paramount to every constitution, inalienable in its nature, and indefinite in its extent. . . . streams of power that appear through this great and comprehensive plan [U.S. Constitution]. . . we shall be able to trace them all to one great and noble source, THE PEOPLE.”
— James Wilson, Nov. 24, 1787
Was Wilson correct about the U.S. Constitution as it existed at the time of ratification? Why or why not?
