Quote of the day..........

"It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment 

on our liberties.

We hold this prudent jealousy to be 

the first duty of citizens,

and one of the noblest characteristics of 

the late Revolution.

The freeman of America did not wait till 

usurped power had strengthened

itself by exercise, and entangled 

the question in precedents.

They saw all the consequences in the principle,

and they avoided the consequences 

by denying the principle."

-- James Madison (1751-1836)
Father of the Constitution for the USA.
4th US President
