"The mild voice of reason, pleading the cause of an enlarged and permanent interest, is but too often drowned, before public bodies as well as individuals, by the clamors of an impatient avidity for immediate and immoderate gain."
James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

Reader comments about this quote:
A very pertinent observation, considering the current state of affairs. The grand old party's lack luster of approach to dealing with corruption within the ranks of power shows the hand of dirty money. The FDR post WWII establishment plows the field of  continued socialistic, progressive movement to a communistic pensioned society. All the while continuing to tear down the American individual sovereign base society. It is very disheartening we have become so far removed from original intent to support our Individual Liberty and Freedom from oppression. Passive is the mass of Patriots in a cold hard winter that approaches quickly. Leadership is bought and paid for, made evident on full display. Invasion and overthrow on full display. Lets us play our cards close to the vest. Hearth and home of our family units, those that continue to work and succeed by merit. Not a social promotion.

    The mild voice of reason, pleading the cause of inalienable rights and liberty at nature's law is too often drowned by the patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land. Clamors of an impatient avidity, such as by Moloch adherents with their human sacrifices and body mutilations for anti-nature's law and immoral immediate / immoderate perceived gains — pleads the cause of an enlarged and permanent destruction.

    The logical conclusion or course cannot possibly include slavery, firearms, God, war or the other ever popular "violent solutions" that these "founding fathers" adhered to.
