I found this to be very interesting and somewhat disturbing to me. I am one of the 55% of our country that still pays for my own needs and I am strongly opposed to the amnesty proposals that are before our nation’s leaders … we must not let this proposal become reality!
What stage are we in??
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, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:
(Won By: / Won By:)
Number of states: Obama: 19 / Romney: 29
Square miles of land: Obama: 580,000 / Romney: 2,427,000
Pop. of counties: Obama: 127 million / Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000
residents by counties: Obama: 13.2 / Romney: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney 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
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some 40-45 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.
If you are not in favor of this happening, then share this post to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.
