"It has been said that all Government is an evil. It would be more proper to say that the necessity of any Government is a misfortune. This necessity however exists; and the problem to be solved is, not what form of Government is perfect, but which of the forms is least imperfect."
by:
James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

to an unidentified correspondent, 1833
