It's a great book, exceopt they are too harsh on James Madison.
Madison was our leader during the Second War of Independence. If Washington is to be credited for the First War of Independence, then Madison should be credited for the second.
Madison is the only president in U.S. history, and the only executive leader in world history, to preserve peacetime liberties and the rule of law during a time of war.
It easy to talk about liberties, but it never happens during real wars (except with Madison).
A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for James Madison.
A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Thomas Jefferson. A vote for Rand Paul is a vote for James Madison.
