Amber Athey, Washington Editor at The Spectator USA and Steamboat Institute Tony Blankley Fellow

At the close of the 1787 Constitutional Convention, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well Doctor what have we got, a republic or a monarchy.” Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.

Franklin’s response is a reminder that it is the responsibility of the citizens to defend their republic. Join us for a discussion of three avenues of engagement: State Legislatures, Education, and Political Parties.
