The Devolution of the Last Great Democracy
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh said, “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 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!”
The average age of the world's greatest democracies from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the same set of sequences.
All Democracies were formed as the result of the people’s desire to escape from bondage; this is driven in the beginning by a deep spiritual faith. Thus the desire for religious freedom is the impetus that drives the people to rebel against the tyrannical ruler holding them in bondage.
The deep spiritual faith instills the courage necessary to empower the people to fight for individual freedom and liberty; thus a covenant is formed between the people and their God. Once individual freedom and liberty are achieved the system produces such abundance never before realized under the previous system of bondage. Why, because a free people will produce at levels never before experienced once they realize they will be the beneficiaries of their labor. People will never produce for the collective like they will for themselves. Such is the fallacy of Socialism!
The problem is abundance always leads to complacency; such is the state of affairs in America today. We have had too much for too long that the majority of our population now forgets where this abundance comes from. Far too many of our fellow citizens have come to believe abundance comes from the government when nothing comes from government but Bondage! Ask the average person what is the problem with Greece today and they will say eat too much of it and it will make you fat. They have no idea what is happening in the world around them or more importantly why. They will never see the parallel with Greece and the Obama Socialist Agenda! But ask most of them who was Michael Jackson’s Dr. and why he is on trial and they will baffle you with their knowledge.
America is now in that critical step back into bondage; from complacence to apathy! The 2012 elections are the most critical in the history of our country. The Obama Regime has done more to grow government and demolish the capitalistic system in just under 3 years than any other previous administration in the history of this country; including Jimmy Carter’s Administration which gave us malaise and stagflation! Four more years of this Regime and America will be back in Bondage.
The bondage America will experience this time around will not be the same as that from which it escaped those 235 years ago but a self imposed bondage. An insidious self imposed bondage resulting from the apathy of the citizenry! A citizenry so dumbed down through their years of obsession with Queen Oprah, Sex in the City, the View, ABC, CBS and NBC so called news, the Real House Wives of Bora Bora and on and on and on. This steady diet of Liberal Pabulum has been spoon fed to an unsuspecting public disguised as Enlightenment and News!
So wake up America before it’s too late. Remain apathetic and ill informed and you’ll usher in 4 more years of the Obama Regime. Do so and witness the final collapse of that shining city on a hill coupled with the eradication of the middle class. Welcome to the American Feudal System presided over by his Majesty Barrack Hussein Obama!
