In this special episode, Dinesh explores the contemporary implications of Ben Franklin's warning that the founders gave Americans a republic–"If you can keep it." Have we kept it? Dinesh argues that there is a wide gap between the America the founders intended, and the America we have now. But how did we get from the original plan to the mess we are in now? Dinesh highlights a series of landmark Supreme Court decisions, paving the way for the Democrats and the Left to distort and abuse the constitutional structure carefully installed by the founders.
