"History repeats itself because nobody listens" - Anonymous.

How Long Do We Have? About the time our original thirteen state adopted their new
Constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at
The University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
"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 they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public

"From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who
Promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the 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
Beginning of history, has been about 200 years."

"During those 200 years, those nations always 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 Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul,
Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000
Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Gore: 19 Bush: 29

Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000 Bush: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million Bush: 143 million

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2 Bush:

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won
Was 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

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
USA in fewer than five years Oh, and by the way, Social Security will
Collapse, pension funds will default and guess what?...... we all
Watched it happen.
If you think the great depression of the
Nineteen-thirties was bad, at least many homes and farms had a garden And
livestock back then.

We have a refrigerator and a pantry. How
Long will that sustain a family?

Think About It ! ! !

Apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.
