In 1787, George Washington and his close allies created a sovereign Republic and ground it in a commitment to science, manufacturing and technological progress. 

In this concluding part of the current series on Washington, we shall focus on three things:  Washington's sponsorship of inventors and revolutionary technologies;  the fight at the Constitutional Convention against Slavery;  and the establishment of a National Government with broad powers to act on behalf of the General Welfare.  Ours is not  a nation that is a plaything for "free market" oligarchs,  but a Republic, constitutionally pledged to build a better, more productive future "for ourselves and our posterity."  We must rediscover these principles and accept the mandate to save and rebuild our nation today.
