Founding Father saw the danger of fighting wars

Came across a quote from James Madision--the father of the Constitution.

It's important to remember when we think about the last eight years of the Bush administration and their naked power grabs and the erosion of our liberties in the name of security. Or to use the administration's words: Fighting them there, so we don't have to fight them here.

The quote:

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."

James Madison
