Defending our Constitutional Republic

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

 “A Republic, if you can keep it.” — Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

Never in our Nation’s history has free speech and religious freedom been this close to extinction. With two sons who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, I admired their heart to serve and defend the country they love and honor. I then realized that the fight isn’t abroad; it is in our cities, counties, states, and country. We can no longer sit on the sidelines while our sons and daughters go abroad to defend our country and come home to a place they no longer recognize because we didn’t watch, fight, and defend our Republic. It is our responsibility as citizens to protect and fight for what our Founders have given us.
