Quote of the day....

There is no maxim in my opinion 

which is more liable to be misapplied, and 

which therefore needs elucidation than 

the current one that the interest of the majority is 

the political standard of right and wrong... . 

In fact it is only reestablishing under another name and 

a more specious form, force as the measure of right... 

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