    a republic or a monarchy". Benjamin Franklin responds to Mrs. Powell's question upon exiting the constitutional convention of 1787, "a republic if you can keep it".

    From the beginning of this republic there is an ever present danger of losing it to corrupt government.

    Ron Paul, US Senator, wrote a speech which is entered into the congressional record, in early 2000, stating that evils beset our country. In addition to the usual evils of selfishness, greed, lust for power, I posit one of misplaced loyalty.

    That is, representatives have ceased putting America first after assuming office but continue to give absolute loyalty to the apparatus that elected them at the expense of the country. This is nothing new but has escalated to the point of a deadlocked government with international consequences.

    American's have the power to restrain or reform the actions of our representatives but
    instead defaulted at the ballot box and candidate selection processes.

    So, Mrs Powell, I fear we may not be able to keep the republic as the good Doctor admonished.
