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 United States of America
Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Allow me to point 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
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..."
I believe the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase 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, ignore this short 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..
Remember Patriots, the only thing that is necessary for Evil to Triumph, is for Good Men to do nothing.
It is time to refresh the Tree of Liberty with the blood of Tryants; It is time for Patriots to rise up in arms, and assemble for battle, as our Forefathers did so very long ago. 2 Million Bikers are descending on Washington in less than a day - can we, The People, not do better? We are capable of raising an Army numbering in the tens of millions - WHO could stand before us?
Arm yourselves, and prepare to take your country back - or sit there and do nothing.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
