Please tell me what you all think this means( It is a great and dangerous error to suppose that all people are entitled to liberty. It is a reward to be earned, not a blessing to be gratuitously lavished on all alike:- a reward reserved for the intelligent, the patriotic, the virtuous and deserving;-and not a boon to be bestowed on a people to ignorant, degraded, and vicious, to be a capable either of appreciating or of enjoying it.Answer Question

Calhoun supported states' rights and nullification, under which states could declare null and void federal laws which they deemed to be unconstitutional. He was an outspoken proponent of the institution of slavery, which he famously defended as a "positive good" rather than as a "necessary evil". His rhetorical defense of slavery was partially responsible for escalating Southern threats of secession in the face of mounting abolitionist sentiment in the North

Minneapolis MN has a lake named Lake Calhoun and some want to change it due to John Calhoun's pro-slavery history!
I think they should change it to Lake Humphrey ----for Hubert Humphrey,our good Senator from Minnesota.
