James Madison, the 4th President of the United States and the father of the Constitution wrote in August of 1793;
"Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
(ie. Patriot Act, NDAA, ect.)
"The truth has a certain elegance and restraint to it. Sometimes it can be a little rough because the truth doesn't spend as much time in makeup as the lies do. Lies require cosmetics and strategic lighting. Truth possesses its own beauty (if you can see it), without the need for artifice and produces its own light." -- Les Visible
