Today's founding quote

Just like yesterday, this comes from James Madison. Remember it the next time someone tries to tell you that America is a Democracy and not a Republic!

"Democracies have ever been

spectacles of turbulence and contention;

have ever been found incompatible

with personal security or the rights of property;

and have in general been as short in their lives
as they have been violent in their death."
