Subject: Fw: Very Interesting Obituary.


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 2008 (It won'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

McCain: 29

Square miles of land won by:

Obama: 580,000 McCain:

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

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 as concerned as I
am please pass this along.
