269 years ago today, one of our great Founding Fathers was born.
James Madison would become the fourth President of the United States, but probably more importantly, the “Father of the Constitution” and author of its Bill of Rights.
A member of the House of Representatives and resident of the White House, as we stand today at the “precipice” of a new governmental seizure of 1/6 of our economy, this great man is likely rolling over in his grave at the thought of the former body about to pass a bill without voting on it that the current occupant of the latter is ready to sign with great haste in spite of the overwhelming opposition the electorate consistantly demonstrates.
I wonder, What would James Madison, the author of the and 10th Amendment to the Consitution think?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
