James Madison spoke and it's still true

"A government resting on the minority is an aristocracy, not a republic, and could not be safe with a numerical and physical force against it, without a standing army, an enslaved press and a disarmed populace."

-- James Madison

(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
