  I came across this last evening and found it KINDA disturbing:
 
 
In 1887, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, Alexander Tyler, 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 the voters discover that they can vote themselves (congress/senate) 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."
Professor Tyler said, "The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 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."
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning last November's 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.

Things were better when only land owners were permitted to vote.

I like the idea that if you are on govt. assistance you don't get to vote.

If you get Govco assistance, you forfeit your right to vote, until you get off the tit? 
I concur!    Excellent
