HISTORY IS The Rise, Progression And Then Deterioration Of Nations

Common Sense Commentary: Throughout history, slaves of rare mentality, personality and strength, have arisen from their chains, in power and popularity, to lead their fellow slaves or tribes in rebellion against their masters. Determined tribes of strong slaves, with nothing to lose, can grow into expanding territories into nations into kingdoms over time.... Which then, through a process of change, events, attitudes and plenty, having reached their zenith of prosperity and freedom, gradually weaken and then yield their freedom to an organized, control obsessed dictator in exchange for government largess ... free stuff.  Lack of struggle, increase of leisure and pleasure gradually destroy initiative, they grow indifferent and cease to resist tyranny and destroy all they or their fathers have built.  And finally, after the passage of time ... they or their descendants are returned to the pits of slavery and poverty ... to await their next slave leader and deliverer ... to arise again from slavery. All of which involves generations, few of which were privileged to live during the glory days of struggle for freedom, slow success and finally, plenty. We are at the end of the last generation of a freely functioning Bill Of Rights... from the blight of poverty to success and plenty to the beginning of loss of character, loss of freedom and loss of plenty. Unless AMERICA awakens, takes dynamic action, dislodges our dictators and their social planners, our nation is headed for the long ranks of has-been nations. Our loss will be fully gone before it is fully recognized.  This free nation took three or four hundred years to build, from scratch, into the greatest, richest and freest people on earth, but all that progress is being frittered away at the speed of a falling star. As a free nation, we are only about 240 years old, but our descent into a dictatorship will be accomplished in about one tenth of that time unless we all rise up in rebellion during this presidential election.

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."

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

 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 Politicians grant amnesty and citizenship to twenty to thirty million poor, uninformedimmigrants and illegal aliens, they will vote for the Political party which gives them the most largess ... which is the Liberal, Socialist "Democrat" party. That will seal the doom of our nation and put us on the same slippery slope which led to the fall of the Roman Empire
