THE LONGEVITY OF AMERICA

In 1887, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Repbulic some 2000 years prior:

” A democracy is always temporal in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of  government.  A democracy will continue  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 re su lt 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, thee 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.

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by:  Obama: 19     McCain 29

Square miles of land won by:  Obama: 580,000   McCain: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by:  Obama: 127 million    McCain: 143 million

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:  Obama: 13.2    McCain: 2.1.

Professor Olson adds:

“In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain 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…”

Olsen believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy(above), with some forty percent of the naiton’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.

If Congress(or Obama by  fiat) 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.
