I am not an evil man, but I do have my opinions... Hell, I may be wrong, if you think I am, make a comment… Let us enter into a discussion of the issue… Who knows, we might end up agreeing.
What gets me is that people are only now hearing about this.... I mentioned this in my blog..... sometime ago, I look for the post and will link it here when I find it.
Thom, wasn't sure how to get this to you here so,,,here ya go,thought it was interestingHow Long Do We Have?About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitutionin 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the Universityof Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some2,000 years earlier:"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as apermanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up untilthe time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous giftsfrom the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote forthe candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, withthe result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.""The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginningof history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, those nationsalways progressed through the following sequence: 1. From bondage to spiritual faith; 2. From spiritual faith to great courage; 3. From courage to liberty; 4. From liberty to abundance; 5. From abundance to complacency; 6. From complacency to apathy; 7. From apathy to dependence; 8. From dependence back into bondage" Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election: Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million.square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000States won by: Gore: 19; Bush: 29 Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2; Bush:2.1Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush wonwas mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country.Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned 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 and they vote, then goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
