Bondage (aka painful chain mail)

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 Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2016

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
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 illegals – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

  1. The Issue is NOT Congress. The issue is NOT the President. The issue is NOT what the Supreme Court Decides. In short the Issue is NOT waiting for what the FEDERAL government decides it wants to do nor not do.

    The issue is the waiting………. The issue is the LACK of Push-Back !!! As Rush said about the Christians and Conservatives in the Country. All those property owning and Tax-paying Citizens are NOT pushing back.

    The Liberals , Democrats, all Progressives are PUSHING their agenda constantly. The muslims are pushing their Agenda for Sharia.

    They aren’t going to stop, until they are stopped !

    Push Back is the answer. Directly addressing the assault is the answer.

  2. Psalm 11:3King James Version (KJV)

    3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

    We as a nation placed ourselves above God. The “church” false christian church has lost its savor. Liars, adulterer’s, fornicator’s, the effeminate, thieves and the covertness rule from on high with no shame.

    Church leaders are unwilling to preach God’s word and condemnation to those setting in the pews for fear of loosing membership and $’s.

    We as a people deserve the wrath of God. We have earned it. A true Christian is prepared to suffer the persecution that is ramping up day by day. Pray for those poor souls that have turned their backs to God and have placed their hopes on men like Obama.

    Revelation 6:16 King James Version (KJV)

    16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the zthrone, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

    • If every man is a sinner, then who are we to throw stones at glass houses? If someone enters a house of worship, are they not there to repent and seek guidance from God via a pastor? Are they then to be shunned because of their sins? No communion, or communing with God because of their mortal sins? It seems rather counterintuitive of the message from Christ.

      • “a house of worship” ?

        You are including the mosques that rail against the USA as the great Satan, and work to bring Sharia within America? As they claim they are communing with allah ( I believe you say allah is the same as the Christian God) and are asking mohammed and seeking allah for guidance in how to best advance their ” holy agenda”.

        Just want to get clear the extent of who and what we are supposed to not shun.

        • You know, Don, your little Negative Nellie rant is about as annoying as B.’s Debbie Downer’s diatribe. I tell ya what. I shall post my true feelings for you boys to rip into. But know this: I’ll not be bullied without a fight!

          • Using a word does not mean you understand it…..nor does it mean you ‘own’ the dialogue and thus the intentions of the speaker. There’s another commenter here who intermittently tries that as well.

            Bully is one of the new Liberal ( Libertarian) go to words like “denier” or Denial that are trotted out to attempt to malign your opposition and deflect the deeper issues. This linguistic attack is part of the very essence of marxist Alinskism.

            As to TRUE “Bullies”…….. islam and muslims have the field there. Along with their Liberal Press ( most recently Stupidonopolis and friends) and Union allies (SEIU, Acorn, Equity and others) as well as the other Soros funded “Foundations”.
