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
"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:
"United States of America",  Born 1776, Died 2016
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               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 m 
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

Of course, if the public will always vote for the party that will give them the most from the treasury, then how does that explain Reagan, Bush, Bush again, and possibly Trump?

Half the country is always willing to vote for someone who will hurt them.

Romney won more square miles of territory, so he should have been named President of vacant land, and Obama could just be in charge of the parts that have people.

Funny but from where I sit in the peanut gallery, looks to me like the ones who want to live in a dictatorship are GOP voters. They certainly love authoritarian fascists enough.

Wow. I didn't know land could vote. Let's hear it for geography. Whodda' thunk?

I agree with Anonymous' observations. The RW lunkheads I know all have the most cockeyed sense of freedom I've ever witnessed. They complain about "the government" and all this tyranny BS, yet they worship the military and especially law-enforcement ( unless themselves or one of their friends or relatives gets cited...that's different ) and yet grovel to the corporate interests whose effects on them are far more egregious. Calvanist useful idiots for the man....to the end.
