"A Republic...If you can Keep it"

Benjamin Franklin's words are never more dear than today, when we are losing freedoms at an alarming pace.
Below is a 10  minute video tutorial on our form of government; please take a few minutes to watch.

Hi Jen. I've seen this before. It is really good.

Have you read Will's latest post on the border's closing in. I found it disturbing to hear these things happen at our borders. It's a good post but as usual, truth can hurt.

Truth does hurt, and I'm physically ill sometimes over this. I have a friend that I commented to "I think the economy will collapse and Obama will "transform" America into his socialist vision". He said and I quote "God, I hope so." How can this be happening? How could *we* let this happen? I know it's prophecy, I know it's the end times, I know all this, but I'm still in denial that they (Satan and his minions) are having success right now.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I don't know how many fights my kids have had with their teachers about the type of government established by the Founders.

Democracy is essentially mob rule, and it always results in the trampling of the rights of the individual (the only rights that actually exist).

Only the rule of law restricted to protecting the rights of each individual to his or her life, liberty, and property will ever work to bring justice, peace, or even mercy to a society.
