"Out of our first trial, during the Revolutionary era, we adopted the greatest and longest surviving Constitution ever written.  We  were tried in a great Civil War, in two World Wars, during depressions and inflations, and we survived and prospered.  Every effort to stamp out American self-government has been defeated . . . so far."

From a speech delivered by now-Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, at an Independence Day Address given on July 15, 2014, at Hillsdale College's Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington D.C..   Speaker Ryan represents Wisconsin's First Congressional District and holds degrees in economics and political science from Miami University.
