Scary Obituary….

This is from a friend in Houston, TX and it is scary, huh?…

Subject: 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:

Born 1776, Died 2012.
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 mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government
welfare…”

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 can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

This obituary does make one think, or, at least, it should. I have one problem with it, though, maybe two. It appears that Alexander Tyler was a Royalist in Scotland at a time when there was a growing movement towards democracy in Britain and limiting the power of the reigning monarch. He was just warning against turning the power over to the people over the long term. Another possible problem is not the inherent selfishness and propensity of voters to vote themselves lavish benefits from the public treasury, but it is the failure of the masses to establish and maintain an educational system that will continuously turn out dynamic leaders who will establish the policies to remake the country continuously from generation to generation. Our problem today is an educational system (schools) backed by a Media that turns out and encourages freeloaders rather than self supporting, hard working entrepeneurs who continuously remake the country by means of their own devices. Alexander Tyler was simply the first royalist in the halls of academia to vote democratic because of a desire of handouts from the public treasury. The country has reached the point where the educational establishment is turning out graduates whose main desire is to become wealthy easily off the oublic dole rather than doing the necessary work to make it from their own devices privately with the resources available to them.

If these statistics are true, then why did Romney lose? It appears that he won on every count except murders. Of course, he did not lose. The Media, with the support of the liberal educational establishment through NPR (and other Media) said he lost, and everyone else believed them because the Media sets the policy of the country. Without the Media, the people have no voice without taking to the streets, like the Tea Party, which can easily be discredited without a Media to back them. Romney won because of voter excesses in two key states (possibly three) backed by overly zealous gangs in a few racist precincts who held the threat of violence over the heads of voters to vote a particular way in mass (100% vote for Obama in a few precincts in Philadelphia and Cleveland, which is impossible in a free and open election). Romney won! The truth will never be known because of a biased, untruthful Media that had the election decided before the first voter cast a ballot.

Forget this obituary! It is simply not true. Only the people can save themselves. It is not too late. They will save themselves, first be retaking the Media. That is already in process through the internet and the isolation and financial ruin of the mainstream traditional Media. The people’s own faith-based and entrepeneurally supportive media for information gathering and distribution is rapidly being established by means of the internet and smart-phone communication. Secondly, they will retake the schools because they are gradually seeing what is happening in their public schools and especially in the public colleges. They are already supporting a private and faith-based school system in overwhelming numbers at great expense under a government that presently requires the support of two systems (public and private), as well as home schooling where the qualification exist; but public university liberal “democrats” are rapidly working themselves out of a job just like the postal workers in the pseudo-governmental corporation known as the Postal Service, which is really still just the same government entity in different clothing. The “King” has put on different clothes. The people are gradually seeing and recognizing their king for what he is, and they are responding.
