This is a 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.”The Obituary follows:

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 Romney: 29 
Square miles of land won by: 
Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000 
Population of counties won by:

Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million 

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won 
by: 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 lowincome tenements and living 
off various forms of government welfare…”

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. 
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
