„I can never consent to being dictated to as to what I shall or shall not do. I, as President, shall be responsible for my administration. I hope to have your hearty co-operation in carrying out its measures. So long as you see fit to do this, I shall be glad to have you with me. When you think otherwise, your resignations will be accepted.“
— John Tyler American politician, 10th President of the United States (in office from 1841 to 1845) 1790 - 1862
