How long will the Republic endure? So long as the ideas of its founders remain dominant. How long will these ideas remain dominant? Just so long as the blood of its founders remains dominant in the blood of its people. Not the blood of Puritans and Virginians alone ^ the original creators of free states^ but the blood of free-born men be they Greeky  Roman Franks Saxony Normany Danny Celty Scotty Goth or Samurai. It is a free stock that creates a free nation
