How true

“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be to-morrow.”

James Madison (likely), Federalist No. 62, 1788

Patriot Post quoted this as one of its Founders Quote Daily entries.   I don’t always agree with the Patriot Post, in fact I often disagree, but this is so appropriate for early January 2009 that I had to copy it here.
