"It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, "We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government." This idea that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power, is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves."

"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."

Not one vote for Democrat or Republican yet. That is kind of odd. I hope more people get to voting.

I voted for Replublican only because I think it is the kind of tongue in cheek that the new neo-cons would have used to mislead the sheep.

Completely irrelevant and nonsensical question. What exactly is the point of it? The views of the parties around then bears very little relevance to the views of the parties today. Today both the Republicans and Democrats are Federalists/Whigs and so much more. Madison was a democratic republican, the party of Jefferson and of limited government, at the time.

I guessed Republican, there are two who come to mind (both deceased)who ran for president and used libertarian sounding rhetoric.

Based on the way you're asking the question, I'm going to say "Republican".

No way was that a Democrat (and certainly no Communist), that had to have been a Republican. I'm guessing Ronald Reagan -- sounds pretty much like the phraseology he would use.

Irrelevant to what? Nonsensical how?
The point of the question, quite simply, is to get a response.

I never made any assertion as to the views of the parties, nor does it have anything to do with my post. If anything, your post is irrelevant.
