Benjamin Franklin's Wish
A Republic, if we can keep it.

Over 234 years have elapsed since the end of the 1787 Constitutional Convention, when Ben Franklin was asked “What have you wrought?” He answered, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” That has always been our challenge and he knew the fragility of our Republic. We as a country have been able to weather all of the threats that have been presented. But, in today’s world with the technology that gives corporate heads more power than the heads of most countries, it makes keeping our Republic questionable.
Now the country is under threat by a combination of despotic leaders of the socialist Democrat Party and Big Tech. Big tech is made up of Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Google, YouTube, and lesser-known social media technology platforms. All are engaged in trying to destroy President Donald Trump and all of his supporters. All of these tech giants are in bed with the Chinese Communist Party, much if not all of their products are made in China. Big Tech has attacked the conservative social media site Parler.com, taking them off the air by denying them access to the world wide web. All have been involved in censoring anything Trump or conservative; this is all about destroying the 1st Amendment, our right of Free Speech. The dictators and terrorist of the world can post their garbage, but President Trump and other conservatives are banned.
The incoming Obama/Harris/Joe Biden administration have been making it clear that they have no intention of following the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. They are in the process of establishing a single-party government, that is fascist, built along the lines of National Socialism. The end result will be the end of free speech and the end of the Bill of Rights. The self-chosen left in all of their omnipotent glory can do as they wish, us deplorable know-nothings are supposed to shut up and say, "yes sir boss."
Only the left will be able to say whatever they want and you will not be allowed to disagree; if you do, you will be punished. The youth will be taught to report everything to the state, as this is what has happened in every socialist country. This country is very close to a civil war, and the left seems to want one. Are they under the foolish misconception that they are untouchable? Or are they planning to call for martial law like they have accused President Trump of planning? I don’t believe they are going to totally trust our military to back them. I expect the socialists to have a backup plan of using foreign U.N. peacekeepers, and China seems the most likely choice. The Chinese have conducted joint training with Canada and now understands our terrain and our North American military tactics.
To Dr. Benjamin Franklin: Sir, we are possibly in for the fight of our lives, the traitors in our government and our society have betrayed the gift that you and the other Founding Fathers gave us. God only knows what the outcome will be; if needed we will fight, for to stand still and do nothing is death; fight and we may live.
