Report from inside the ring road – We have it!


Wednesday was perhaps the most daunting and embarrassing day in history for all of us Americans. But, in the end, it was a day to be proud of.

In 1787, Ben Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention, when he was asked, “Doctor, what do we have? A republic or a monarchy?”

Franklin replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

We kept it. Within hours of the crowd debacle on the Capitol, Congress met and, in what went from one of the most partisan sessions to a long-time bipartisan session, quickly affirmed the 2020 election and began the traditional peaceful transfer of the power.

Some things this week:

Our foreign critics enjoyed watching the debacle on the hill.

What the world should pay attention to is that the great American experiment in democracy, in a matter of hours, has finally had enough, stood up and got rid of a demagogue with the most powerful office in the nation who thought he was the most great of our republic.

Be proud. We kept it.
