James Madison: The Genius of America's System

PatriotPost.US The Patriot Post Founders' Quote Daily

"If it be asked what is to restrain the House of Representatives from making legal discriminations in favor of themselves and a particular class of the society? I answer, the genius of the whole system, the nature of just and constitutional laws, and above all the vigilant and manly spirit which actuates the people of America, a spirit which nourishes freedom, and in return is nourished by it."

-- James Madison (Federalist No. 57, 19 February 1788)
