Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law,

St. PaulMinnesota, points out facts of 2008 Presidential election:


 Number of States won by:

 Democrats: 19

 Republicans:  29


 Square miles of land won by:

 Democrats: 580,000
 Republicans:  2,427,000


 Population of counties won by:

 Democrats: 127 million
 Republicans: 143 million


 Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
 
Democrats: 13.2
 Republicans:  2.1


 

 Professor Olson adds:

 "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won by Republicans

  was  mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.


 
Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in
 government-owned tenements and living off various forms of

 government welfare.


 

Professor 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 and they vote, then we can say goodbye to

 the



"Always do the right thing, just because it is the right thing to do".

I wish only land owners could vote like back in the old days.  This country would be a whole different place if all the damn free loaders had no say in anything.
