About the time our original thirteen states 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:
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 treasury."; "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
"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
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,
Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the
2000 Presidential election:
1. Number of States won by:
Gore: 19; Bush: 29
2. Square miles of land won by:
Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000
3. Population of counties won by:
Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million
4. Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
Gore: 13.2; Bush: 2.1
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 may say goodbye to the
in fewer than five years.
Pass this along to help
everyone realize just how much
is at stake, knowing that apathy is the
greatest danger to our
