Subject: Obituary - Very Interesting

  In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the 
University of Edinborough, 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          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..."

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..

This is truly scary! Of course we are not a democracy, we are a 
Constitutional   Republic . Someone should point this out to Obama. 
Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The 
There couldn't be more at stake than on Nov 2012.

If you are as concerned as I am please pass this along.
