SCARY OBITUARY

Post by Brenda Pike » Mon May 06, 2013 7:59 am

Scary Obituary

In 1887 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
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."

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of
Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, 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.

How very sad, Dear Brenda.
Sadly I fear that there is a whole lot of truth in
this article. I hope and pray that it will help to
open the eyes of those who do not see or
understand what is going on in our coutry.

GLYASDI, Jan ))(( )))(((

DEAR JAN, THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT DEAR FRIEND. I HOPE THIS MESSAGE RINGS LOUD AND CLEAR TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I FEAR THEY HAVE FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL OF AND EIGHTEEN WHEELER. WE'RE ON A DEAD END ROAD IF FOLKS DON'T WAKE UP AND HOUND THE HELL OUT OF HOUSE AND CONGRESS, THAT IS OUR ONLY CHANCE OF MAKING A DIFFERENCE. THIS SHOULD BE PUT ON FACE BOOK, WE HAVE TO TAKE ALL THE CRAP FROM ALL THE ETHNIC GROUPS. LIKE IT OR NOT, I SAY, HELL WITH THAT, HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT THE REAL PROBLEM. I'M REAL TIRED OF OBAMA'S SUGAR COATING AND COVER UPS. BOY, HE SAID CHANGE IN HIS CAMPAIGN AND THAT'S WHAT WE GOT, I HOPE THOSE THAT VOTED FOR HIM ARE REAL HAPPY ABOUT WHAT AMERICA LOOKS LIKE NOW. GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS AMERICA. LOVE BRENDA
