That truth cannot be material in any respect, is contrary to the nature
of things. No tribunal, no codes, no systems can repeal or impair this
law of God, for by his eternal laws it is inherent in the nature of
things ... It is evident that if you cannot apply this mitigated
doctrine for which I speak ... you must for ever remain ignorant of
what your rulers do. I can never think this ought to be; I never did
think the truth was a crime; I am glad the day is come in which it is to
be decided; for my soul has ever abhorred the thought, that a free man
dared not speak the truth.
-- Alexander Hamilton
