James Madison, regarded as the father of the U.S. Constitution, authored the majority of the Federalist Papers, which played a major role in the Constitution's ratification. Believing that humanity left to its own devices is inherently corrupt and wicked, with no exemptions for leaders, he designed our government to be one of checks and balances.
"If we resort for a criterion to the different principles on which different forms of government are established, we may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior." -- James Madison, Federalist No. 39, January 1788
