Quote of the Day

"Of all enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debt and taxes. And armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few." -- James Madison, Father of the Constitution

So true. Look how every war grew the power of the federal government. Look how Linclon acted like a tyrant during the civil war. Look at Wilson and his sedition act in WW1.
