Something making the rounds…

I don’t usually post stuff making the chain email rounds, but I liked this one…


Scary Obituary:
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the
University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: “A democracy is always
temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from
the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a
dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”
The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn’t hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in 

St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama-19; Romney-29.
Square miles of land won by: Obama-580,000; Romney-2,427,000.
Population of counties won by: Obama-127 million; Romney-143 million.
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama-13.2; Romney-2.1.

Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory
Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens
of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low 
income tenements and living off various forms of government
welfare…”

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
‘complacency and apathy’ phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of 

democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population
already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million 
criminal invaders called illegals – and they vote – then we can say
goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how
much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our
freedom..
