Fact is: A republic if you can keep it … As yours truly has covered numerous times before, the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.” (~ Provided in link, with others, down below.)
Once the founders exhausted all of the avenues available to them at the time, they were left with no choice and thus they pledged their money, time, lives and sacred honor to fight the corruption, to fight for freedom. Once there is nothing we can trust anymore, once elections become corrupt, we have no power; only arms.
Today, We the (80 million+) People find ourselves encased under a demoMarxocrat / communist plebiscite of sorts spouting their success in corrupting or suborning our Judiciary, Congress, and the gov’t bureaucracy (Deep State) into full control of the US Education system, using it instead to indoctrinate our young people from K-12 to college. Additionally they are in cahoots with, and have solid control of, the deep-state US alphabet-soup media, including social media, which played such a huge part in the recent election steal.
So just where do We the (80 million+) People go next? Short of civil war, it would appear to be checkmate for America and our Constitution. There’s no peaceful way to correct this. Or is there?
The Texas initiation of a case before the Supremes was a stellar attempt to heighten an appreciation for States’ Rights. Oh, for the days when Senators saw their duty to represent the states, rather than to act as the Dutch Uncles of the House. Instead of being seen by the justices as a valid case, the questionable actions of a few states were allowed to stand, having a profound impact on the overall governance of our Republic. Woe on them.
Fact is: A republic if you can keep it. Woe on not using the proper role of the Senate, too, since the institution of direct election of its members.
Robert Curry, American Thinker: ‘Standing up for America’ …
We now have what Venezuela has made itself famous for: a stolen election. The Democrats even used the very same Dominion software the corrupt rulers of Venezuela rely on. That’s a wow!
There will be consequences. To steal elections — and to allow elections to be stolen — is to invite civil unrest and distrust of government of the precise kind that other countries with fraudulent elections experience.
A fair election is what gives a government of the people its claim to legitimacy. A politician who is elected by fraud has no more claim to office than a carjacker has to the car he has taken from the car’s rightful owner. Theft is theft.
American voters traditionally accepted their candidate losing an election because they believed that the election was fair. Take that belief away, and America moves into a different political and social condition from what we have known for all our lives.
Congress failed to stand up for the most basic requirement of the American system of government: a clean election. What happened and what did not happen in Congress revealed a most unwelcome truth. Evidently, there are two main groups in Congress. One group is ready, willing, and able to steal elections, and the other group is unwilling even to try to defeat the theft of an election.
Allowing the Democrats to get away with stealing this election puts the future of the bewildered and bewildering other political party in doubt. [-]
[+] … In light of what Congress did and did not do on January 6, we must come to the most unwelcome conclusion imaginable: America’s majority party is willing to steal elections to hold on to power, and the minority party, remaining frozen in its traditional defensive crouch, is unwilling to fight back or else incapable of it. Consequently, saving the American system is up to the American people. [-]
[+] … The American people can put a stop to this criminal enterprise, if only we will. Overcoming the widespread fraud that is now baked into the system won’t be easy, but what must be done can be done.
In any event, win or lose, let’s conduct ourselves in a way that would make the Founders proud. [end]

Fact is historically speaking, during the original American Revolution, barely 30% of the colonists supported the revolution; the rest were Loyalists and fence-sitters.
“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state. In a single state, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.” ~ Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28
“Leviathan”, often termed “the vast amalgamation of powers” which hold sway over so many lives, is dependent on the apathy and sloth of the individual. It was a small percentage of the people who instigated the course of events which led to the foundation of the American Experiment in the first place and it will likely be an equally small number who steward the Republic through her latest tortures. Or contrarily escorts her to her demise.
Fact is: A republic if you can keep it.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – As always President Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
