    Its been in my head for some time. One of our great Constitutional draftsmen was quoted as saying something on the lines of.....We gave you a Republic See if you can hold on to it. Does any one know this. I thought it was Jefferson?

    At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, as the delegates were leaving, a woman stopped Ben Franklin and asked him "Do we have a republic or a monarchy?" Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it."
