The symbol on the Gadsden Flag originated from the writings of Benjamin Franklin as he compared a rattlesnake to the American Colonies. The flag was used during the Revolution and its patriotic symbolism has been adopted by various groups through the centuries and is widely popular again today. See the Wikipedia entry on Gadsden Flag for a peek into its long history.
James Madison on Limited Government
This insightful quote by James Madison was too long for inclusion on most of our gift items, but it is so relevant today that we felt obliged to make it available on a canvas bookmark.
“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress… Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.”
- James Madison
The above quote is especially poignant when we remember that Madison is known as "The Father of the Constitution" for his contributions to the document that creates the framework of our government..
