Truer words were never spoken. This is our Republic, if we can keep it. As my Lady said, “I didn’t vote for myself today, but for my children. My place is made in the world- but your future is still in front of you.”

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

“A Republic, if you can keep it.”

– Benjamin Franklin
