“For the same reason that the members of the State legislatures will be unlikely to attach themselves sufficiently to national objects, the members of the federal legislature will be likely
to attach themselves too much to local objects.”

— James Madison (Federalist No. 47, 1 February 1788)

Reference: Madison, Federalist No. 46.
