Interesting 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 2016
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 (they are lawbreakers) –

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, forget 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..

About Jim G.

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
