After all, James Madison is ultimately the greatest president ever! He introduced the Bill of Rights, which give certain freedoms to citizens. James Madison is the reason why citizen's have the right to practice their religion or freely say what they want to say. He also declared the War of 1812. Even though the White house was burned down, James Madison still managed to carried unity through the nation and leadership when the symbol of the United States, was burned down. He set an incredible example for the country, which turned out to a huge success, and he most of all, he is the reason why the United States is not only a strong central government, but also a unified nation!
Evidence #1 James Madison helped write the Federalist Papers, which limits government powers.
An example of a government power that is limited would be restricting citizen's rights. Madison plays an active role in society by being a defender of freedom.
"Every man who loves peace, every man who loves his country, every man who loves liberty ought to have it ever before his eyes that he may cherish in his heart a due attachment to the Union of America and be able to set a due value on the means of preserving it."-James Madison
