The U.S.A.....How long till the END....Do the math and weep!!!!

HOW LONG DOES THE USA HAVE?

The sad thing about it, you can see it coming. I have always heard about this democracy countdown. It is interesting to see it in print. God help us, not that we don't deserve it. How Long Do We Have?

About the time the original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, 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 earlier:
'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 vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to 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, those nations always progressed through the following sequence: 1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage.
' Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:
Number of States won by:
Gore: 19 .
Bush: 29.
Square miles of land won by:
Gore: 580,000.
Bush: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by:
Gore: 127 million
Bush: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
Gore: 13.2
Bush: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: 'In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned 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 illegal and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years. If you are in favor of this then do nothing... 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.

weep?

I do not want America as it is. I'm ready for change. Many status quo systems and institutions will pass away - good! I am not afraid.

The cycles go 'round and 'round

"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury."

That's why we're supposed to have a Republic, rather than a Democracy. Still, the cyclical nature of things, as you pointed out, is accurate.

A good book about this cyclical phenomenon is The Fourth Turning. (The same authors wrote Generations.)

Here's the editorial review of The Fourth Turning from the Library Journal (found at the Amazon link) --

After researching historical patterns, the authors (Generations: The History of America's Future, Morrow, 1991) conclude that America is on the verge of crisis. They substantiate their hypothesis by identifying and tracing a repetitive, four-stage historical cycle that, throughout recorded time, started on a high note and ended in hardship. Narrator Michael Tilford's polished, convincing voice and steady pacing lend an air of legitimacy to the authors' assertions. A brief question-and-answer session between the narrator and the authors at program's end provides an interactive quality that enhances the sometimes methodical drone of the historical analysis. Like other works of prophecy, The Fourth Turning should circulate well in public libraries.?Mark P. Tierney, The World Bank, Washington, D.C.

If I recall correctly, The Fourth Turning argues that there are mini-cycles of about 40 years each within grander cycles.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Bush has done a lot more

Bush has done a lot more than Gore to destroy Liberty, but the piece makes some good points about the Democrats and welfare parasites (their voter base).

Worry not. America will go on in one form or another. You can't use armies to defeat an idea whose time has come.
