Today's Founder's Quote: Silent Encroachments
"There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."
- James Madison, 1788.
JM is right as usual.. Rarely do the people ever lose their freedoms by coups or sudden change. It usually happens slowly, bit by bit. Then one day, we wake up and go "Hey what happened?" As for Meredith Parker, we know exactly where she went to - she took the express train to Hottieville!
