A Scary Obituary

Published:

Scary Obituary . . . and it is occurring as you read this . . . 

"those who do not learn from history are doomed by repeating it"

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

and...
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
illegal’s - 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..
