James Madison said two centuries ago,
"We are free today substantially, but the day will come when our Republic will be an impossibility. ... A Republic cannot stand upon bayonets, and
when the day comes, when the wealth of the nation will be in the hands of a few, then we must rely upon the wisdom of the best elements in the country
to readjust the laws of the nation to the changed conditions."
Has this day arrived?
