republic, if you can keep it, said Ben Franklin when asked what
kind of government the Founders had in mind. We didnt keep it, though:
their successors have turned it into an empire. The Founders also gave
us a Constitution and their successors have turned it into a meaningless
piece of parchment.
Our foreign policy
of perpetual war has confirmed the Founders worst fears: we are
losing our liberties to an all-powerful government that spies on its own
citizens and wreaks havoc across the globe. This isnt what Franklin,
Washington, and Jefferson envisioned, and you can be sure of one thing:
theyre rolling over in their graves.
Help us restore the
original vision of the Founders: help us restore the American republic.
In short: help keep Antiwar.com alive. We cant dismantle the empire
