To everyone going to Tampa - print out this James Madison quote and toss it everywhere like confetti!

"Of all the 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 debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.... No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."

-- James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

"[T]he powers granted by the proposed Constitution are the gift of the people,
and may be resumed by them when perverted to their oppression,
and every power not granted thereby remains with the people."

"A government resting on the minority is an aristocracy, not a republic,
and could not be safe with a numerical and physical force against it,
without a standing army, an enslaved press and a disarmed populace."
