An American Quiz By Lisa Fabrizio | The American Spectator Is it all over in America? This is a question that has been asked, I suppose, since its founding. It is reported that when Ben Franklin was asked after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, if America was a republic or a monarchy he replied, “A republic…If you can keep it.” So, even at the birth of our nation, there were doubts as to the feasibility of a government whose powers were reserved to “We, the People.” Never had a great nation survived without a group or groups of individuals seizing the reins and using governmental power to strip the rights from the people. What is needed to stem the tide of encroaching cradle-to-grave government control of our lives is a series of hard questions put to the American people, to shake them out of their complacency and ignorance. Simply put and honestly asked, these are but a few suggestions for those who would hope to hold back the wave of Socialism that is well-past licking at our shores.
