Two quotes worth noting and a thank you
When asked what kind of government the Constitution promotes, Benjamin Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it."
When Abraham Lincoln was nominated for United States Senator in 1858 he accepted with his "House Divided" speech. He said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand..."
I find these quotes to be relevant today as they were when they were spoken. May we as citizens strive for the moral rule of law and integrity in our government.
Thank you Congressman, Senator and now Professor Joe for your service.
