Watcher’s Council Nominations – America’s Birthday Edition

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

As we approach a moment of decision 1n four months’ time, it’s well worth reflecting on our past,our present and our future. The next election, and even more important how the men elected to office behave and the choices they make are going to be crucial in determining what kind of country we become.

It wasn’t so very long ago that Benjamin Franklin, coming out of the Constitutional convention in Philadelphia, was asked by a fellow citizen what kind of country our Founders had given us.

“A Republic” Franklin replied, “If you can keep it.”

Can we? Amidst the festivities of celebrating the birth of our beloved Republic, we had best ponder the answer to that question. As another great American famously said, freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.

Ultimately, it’s up to us, just like Ben Franklin said back at the creation.

I and my fellow Council members wish you and yours a wonderful Fourth of July.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
