The father of "The Bill of Rights"

Hello, he should be on everyone's short list! Mason refused to sign the Constitution until a Bill of Rights was passed.

I shudder what to think America would be without the bill of rights.

James Madison... the brains behind the Constitution and the Bill of Rights... and the undisputed champion of the separation of church and state.
