James Wilson (one of the framers of the US Constitution) wrote in 1787, "... the people may change the constitutions whenever and however they please. This is a right of which no positive institution can ever deprive them."
James Wilson (1742 – 1798) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States and a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence. Wilson was elected twice to the Continental Congress, and was a major force in drafting the United States Constitution.
