  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
United States of America: Born 1776, Died 2012 or soon after.
 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
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
illegals - and they can vote - then we can say goodbye to the USA in
fewer than five years.
