James Madison: Class envy politics leads to chaos and violence
Posted by iusbvision on January 24, 2011
James Madison is known as the Father of the Constitution. The left is saying that repeal of ObamaCare in unconstitutional, which is of course laughable to thinking people, but just in a little help is in order here is Federalist #10:
A zeal for different opinions concerning religion, concerning government, and many other points, as well of speculation as of practice; an attachment to different leaders ambitiously contending for pre-eminence and power; or to persons of other descriptions whose fortunes have been interesting to the human passions, have, in turn, divided mankind into parties, inflamed them with mutual animosity, and rendered them much more disposed to vex and oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good. So strong is this propensity of mankind to fall into mutual animosities, that where no substantial occasion presents itself, the most frivolous and fanciful distinctions have been sufficient to kindle their unfriendly passions and excite their most violent conflicts. But the most common and durable source of factions has been the various and unequal distribution of property.
