A Quote by James Madison on independence, language, men, patriotism, people, presidency, and principles

"Every answer he [President John Adams] gives to his addressers unmasks more and more his principles and views. His language to the young men at Philadelphia is the most abominable and degrading that could fall from the lips of the first magistrate of an independent people, and particularly from a Revolutionary patriot."

James Madison (1751 - 1836)
