Madison Says:

"All men having power ought to be mistrusted."

"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."

"The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty."
