  1. That is indeed a good one, but perhpas the most relevant thing he ever said for this topic was in “Political Reflections” in 1799 (see my page about that essay; I am not aware of an e-version of the complete text). The most relevant passage is:

    “the fetters imposed on liberty at home have ever been forged out of the weapons provided for defence against real, pretended, or imaginary dangers from abroad.”

    But my favorite quote of all from Madison is the one I put up on my home page a year or so ago.
