    Mr. Madison was a true colossus.

    A noble patrimony it is that he and his commensurately illustrious fellows bequeathed to us.

    Can Americans remain free in a world full of ruled people in other lands? Unfortunately, all the US wars are NOT bringing liberty to those people -- where are those countries' declarations of independence? (Some have them.) The concept of Liberty and personal responsibility must take hold among the other nations.

    The real transformation of America was when the American mind changed from a subject to a sovereign. That awakening must continue world wide. The US cannot 'free' any other country -- besides the fact that US wars are to protect US trade routes (oil & opium) for private business (energy & pharma).

    How's the American mind today?
