On June 21, 1788 in Philadelphia, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention were leaving Independence Hall, after just agreeing to the general structure for the new United States of America. A crowd had gathered on the steps of the great hall anxious to hear the news. An old woman approached Benjamin Franklin and asked him, “well, Doctor, what do we have, a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin replied, “a republic, if you can keep it.” Do many Americans even know what a Constitutional Republic is supposed to look like? And how to keep it if they do?
When looking at the United States of America, do we have anything that even resembles a Constitutional Republic anymore? We currently have a President who legislates by executive fiat. He has personally created the energy crisis which is strangling the middle and lower classes, and destroying our economy. His executive orders to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline and cancel drilling contracts on federal land have cut our domestic oil production dramatically, drove up gas prices, and is fueling hyperinflation. There was no legislation passed, no public debate. He simply did this with a swipe of his pen as if he were King George, himself.
The Biden administration has created the border crisis by intentionally ignoring or violating federal immigration laws. Our Southern Border is now wide open and has allowed over 2 million illegal immigrants to enter our country since Joe Biden took office. And now, we have record amounts of illegal drugs and fentanyl smuggled into this country through our Southern Border which has resulted in record numbers of overdose deaths. And this administration is doing nothing to stop it, almost as if they want it to happen.
