How Long Do We Have

Every country has a lifespan. America has been in existence for over 200 years, but in the last 50 years and some might even say for the last 80 years, America has been on a downward spiral. Legislation and laws with the stated intention to offer assistance has only created a class of people that are totally dependent on everyone but themselves. Gone are the desires to "make it on your own". How long do we have as a nation and world power? How long until we become a third world nation with all the problems that come with that title?

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:

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 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 dictatorship.

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 following sequence:

  1. from bondage to spiritual faith

  2. from spiritual faith to great courage

  3. from courage to liberty

  4. from liberty to abundance

  5. from abundance to complacency

  6. from complacency to apathy

  7. from apathy to dependence

  8. from dependence back into bondage

Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota points out some interesting facts concerning the 2008 Presidential election:

Number of States won by:

Democrats: 19

Republicans: 29

Square miles of land won by:

Democrats: 580,000

Republicans: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by:

Democrats: 127 million

Republicans: 143 million

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:

Democrats: 13.2

Republicans: 2.1

Professor Olson adds:

"In aggregate, the map of the territory the Republican won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare." Olson believes the United States is 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.

As Americans, we need to end the level of Dependency that is increasing every day. It is not enough to stop it; we must actually reverse and decrease the level. Forgotten are the concepts of Independence and Self-Reliance. With far too many people, the idea of Freedom has become synonymous with some form of entitlement or handout. The idea of finding a new job now gives way to extending unemployment benefits. Welfare assistance has become an acceptable alternative to earning a paycheck. Every day, fewer taxpayers are forced to support an ever increasing number of the Dependant class that feel more entitled to the earnings of other people. This trend cannot last. At some point, the foundation of taxpayers that keep America successful will eventually crumble.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal aliens or "undocumented workers" and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years. The danger that exists by not having a secured border can be read in the editorial "The True Threat From Illegal Aliens".

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, ignore this warning. 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.
