I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. ~James Madison, speech, Virginia Convention, 1788
Born: March 16, 1751 in Port Conway, King George, Virginia
Died: June 28, 1836 in Montpelier in Virginia
Married to Dolley Payne Todd Madison
Looking forward to the new year I will try to provide present day quotes from current politicians and people of influence who believe as our founding fathers did.
Quotes and actions of freedom and liberty should be timeless.
If our leaders believed, acted and spoke as our founding fathers did, confidence would be restored in all that we do as a country.
Have a happy safe New Year and many more.
