Far Afield in 223 Years

"The people of the U.S. owe their Independence & their liberty, to the wisdom of descrying in the minute tax of 3 pence on tea, the magnitude of the evil comprised in the precedent. Let them exert the same wisdom, in watching against every evil lurking under plausible disguises, and growing up from small beginnings."

-- James Madison

(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution (signed 223 years ago today), 4th US President
