Recently Freedom Outpost published an article called
The Fall of the American Republic
It contained this quote from Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor in 1887, who 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."
It continues on to point out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election that many Americans simply don’t know or choose to ignore.
You may wish to read these several times. Your own fact checking will mean more to you.
·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
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..."
So it appears the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental
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.
Just this week, four straight days of almost non-stop rain didn’t thwart the thousands of protesters who band together their efforts from two distinct groups, American Military Veterans and their loved ones young and old, along with truck drivers in Tractor-trailer rigs rolled into downtown D.C., horns blaring, as police vehicles were arrayed to block their paths. Crowds of veterans and citizens formed nearby, with loud shouts for the police to move their vehicles out of the way.
General outrage has developed across the land, over the perception that the federal government has been deploying far more personnel, and other expensive resources, just to close off certain national parks and Memorials such as the Vietnam War memorial and the World War II memorial especially noted for being basically open-air displays, essentially requiring no significant operational management on the part of government.
While further aggravating many citizens’ sense of betrayal by their government is the fact that a number of democrat members of congress turned out on the mall earlier this week to host a massive rally of illegal aliens right there on the otherwise allegedly closed Mall, with vast expense to the taxpaying citizens adding insult to injury when it was disclosed how many extra police were deployed to basically protect and host the rally–all while actual American citizens were forbidden from accessing the Mall!
The Time is Now, don’t ignore these short warnings; apathy is the greatest threat to our freedoms.
