On Enlightenment

Remember the question posed to Benjamin Franklin?
"What have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" 
And now, contemplate his response:
"A republic, if you can keep it."
We need to be about the business of keeping it.

Reflect upon the Age of Enlightenment because many of those ideas birthed from that time play into why this country is even here in the first place-- and what it will take to keep it truly ours-- as in, the people.
