Just passing on another neo-conservative email.
« on: June 22, 2011, 12:02:12 AM »

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough, 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."
The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2008
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million. Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won
by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain 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 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 illegal's - and they vote - then we can say goodbye
to the USA in fewer than five years.

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to
our freedom.

This is truly scary! Of course we are not a democracy, we are a
Constitutional Republic. Someone should point this out to Obama.
Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution. There couldn't be more at stake than on Nov 2012.
If you are as concerned as I am please pass this along.

Excellent truth here.  The beginning of the fall is at hand.  If only I could live long enough to see the rebirth of a great nation.

This was first sent around after the Bush-Gore election. The names have changed.

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor... had this to say

about the fall of the Athenian Republic... "A democracy ...cannot exist... [once] ...voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the

public treasury...

Tyler sounds like another once famous Scotsman, Edward Gibbon.  Gibbon was once wildly and widely famous for penning Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.   This book(s) is in 6 volumes and depending on the font is perhaps 10,000 pages long.  The likely reason you have never heard of Gibbon is because he has been ignored by Modernist and Post Modernist leftist university professors. The reason is, these leftist professors know that in order to ferment a revolution the American citizenry must first be render deaf, mute, and blind so you will not recognize where these university elites are leading us less we bolt from the slaughter.  If you don't get the idea just think of the sign outside the gate at Auschwitz, the infamous Nazi death camp, "Work makes you free."  So if you yearn to be free or to have a government provided 'green' job, enter yea at this gate at your perell, and remember, don't get deloused. 

Another reason Gibbon is no longer considered worth studying is because university elites consider him one of those dreaded Enlightenment “dead white men” like Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton, Franklin, or Adams.  On it‘s face, this is the most racist of reasons to ignore Gibbon‘s work.  Gibbon’s first volume of ‘Decline and Fall’ was published just before the American Revolution.   To university elites of the ilk I described, no ‘dead white man’ ever published anything of worth before 1848.  To those professors I outlined above, 1848 was the most important year in the history of the Earth.  Because 1848 was the year that all of Europe erupted into 26 separate leftist revolutions called "The Revolution of 1848."  This is also the same year that the twin Gods of  leftist sent down their stone tablets to mankind, because 1848 was also the year that Karl Marks and Fredrick Engels first published their Communist Manifesto.
