Professor Tyler, stated “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.”
I believe, he was extrapolating on Alex de Tocqueville’s 1831 treatise … but in 1887, as a professor, at the University of Edinburgh Scotland, he compared, America’s predicted future, to the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior.
Why? He explains:
“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. 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.”
America’s founding fathers, having seen this historical pattern of nations spiraling into repression / bondage, they refused to descend into serfdom or slavery again and fired the shot heard round the world.
Doing so, they inspired other peoples to seek freedom. Our forefathers built “checks and balances” into our system attempting to thwart this predicted pattern. At this point in time, it’s (y)our call as to whether they were successful or not – – –
Recently, Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning our last Presidential election: Obama Romney
Number of States won by: 19 29
Square miles of land won by: 580,000 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: 127 million 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents won by: 13.2 2.1
Note: citizens in these areas have evolved to living off various forms of government welfare … which has been part of the elitist’s Master Plan – to create dependence . . . to “Pack and Stack” voters into cities where they can be more “controlled or influenced” by media … where immorality and vice flourishes, where liberty and freedoms are taken for granted. It follows then, that liberty can more easily squashed.
Professor Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of Democracy, with some 40% of the nation’s population already having reached the “dependency” phase … dependence on government who has now been “bought and sold” by those seeking to control.
Societies thrive when held together by the foundation of law; societies collapse when lawlessness becomes commonplace.
Holder and Obama’s divisive lawlessness sought control and in doing so, they brought violence, as we’ve seen in Ferguson, Baltimore and Chicago. They also brought in the legalization and use of previously illicit drugs (another sure sign of our eminent collapse); meanwhile, Obama continues to shred our Constitution.
We have no alternative; Obama must now be impeached before the academics mentioned above are correct; our enemies await and prepare … within and outside the gates!
