Madison's Perpetual War

Perpetual War... (published in 1813):

"Then James Madison, a second time President, adopted a remedy for the wrongs of our seamen, infinitely more injurious to them than the evils which they suffered...he ordered out the militia, in contempt of that very Constitution of which he was one of the principal framers.  In short, whatever he attempted to vindicate by arms, by arms he lost."
