James Madison on the Constitution

PatriotPost.US The Patriot Post Founders' Quote Daily

"I entirely concur in the propriety of resorting to the sense in which the Constitution was accepted and ratified by the nation. In that sense alone it is the legitimate Constitution. And if that is not the guide in expounding it, there may be no security "

-- James Madison (letter to Henry Lee, 25 June 1824)

(In other words, our Constitution is not a 'living, evolving' document, as Leftists claim....Linda)
