  •  "A Republic, If You Can Keep It..." (6+ / 0-)

    Franklin didn't say anything about what happens if it turns out to be a banana republic.  The society described sounds ever so much like the delightful places to live in Central and South America or the Caribbean.  Well, the Roman Republic passed away the same way.  I guess the only real question is whether we experience the same sort of civil wars which wracked Rome for two centuries before an absolute ruler was chosen.
