"The power of the legislative being derived from the people
by a positive voluntary grant and institution, can be no other
than what that positive grant conveyed, which being only to make laws,
and not to make legislators, the legislative can have no power to
transfer
their authority of making laws, and place it in other hands."
-- John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist.
