Quote of The Day - Laws

"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood."

- James Madison

And yet here we are today, with things like Obamacare and a convoluted mess of gun control laws.

James Madison was operating under the assumption that the American people would remain in control of the American government.

Unfortunately, history has proven most of the Founding Fathers to be optimistic, at best...
