"A republic, if you can keep it..."

“We get the government we deserve.”
Alexis de Tocqueville

"It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried."
Winston Churchill

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powel anxiously awaited the results and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished asked him directly, `Well, Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?' `A republic, if you can keep it,' responded Franklin.


  1. Czabe, wish I had followed your lead and taken the day off on drown my sorrows or to celebrate. Either may be weeks before we know who won. Unless there's a complete blowout, there'll be lawsuit after lawsuit.

  2. Conservatives - Those that are interested in not spending money when Democrats are in power.

  4. Great video.... except for highlighting Rush Limbaugh, who I find to be a dishonest, disingenuous gas bag who is so polarizing as to not be persuasive to the conservative cause.

  5. You can't explain away 6 trillion in 4 years.

  6. Greatest few minutes of my life since Montana's drive in the '89 Super Bowl. Damn good video, Czabe.

    That scares me FAR more than terrorism ever will.

  7. Unfortunately, conservatism makes too much sense for libs to understand. They don't think with their minds, they react according to their feelings.
    "I voted for a black guy! Aren't I enlightened?!"
    They never stop to think that this guy is spending us into bankruptcy. All that counts for them is, "This guy is black and I voted for him. How cool am I?"
    Fucking idiots.
