A Nugget of Truth From Our Founding Fathers

James Madison - "Father of the Constitution" and Loyal American

"The aim of every political institution is, or ought to be, first to obtain for rulers men who possess most wisdom to discern, and most virtue to pursue, the common good of society; and in the next place, to take the most effectual precautions for keeping them virtuous whilst they continue to hold their public trust."


~The Federalist Papers. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay, ed. by Clinton Rossiter (New York: New American Library)
