Say what you will about our founding fathers, but please don't deny their insightfulness......

"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood;  if they be repealed or revised before they are promulged, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be to-morrow.  Law is defined to be a rule of action;  but how can that be a rule, which is little known and less fixed?" 
-James Madison, The Federalist No. 62 (writing as Publius, February 12, 1788)
