James Madison

"I
believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedom of the
people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by
violent and sudden usurpations.
"

JAMES
MADISON (Drafted Virginia Constitution, Member of Continental Congress,
Virginia delegate to Constitutional Convention, named "Father of the
Constitution", author of Federalist Papers, author of the Bill of
Rights, Congressman from Virginia, Secretary of State, 4th President)
