    Somebody needs to tell these parasites about socialism/communism. In the old Soviet Union it was agaisnt the law to not go to work. Can you imagine the outrage the welfare queen is going to have when they come and get her and make her work. She will be pining for the good ole USA, where she could sit home all day and watch Oprah.

    How long do we have










































    This is the most interesting thing I've read in a long time. 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 deserve
    it.












    How
    Long Do We Have?












    About
    the time our original thirteen states adopted their
    new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a
    Scottish history professor at the
    University
    of Ed inburgh
    , 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 2008 Presidential election:













    Number of States won by:



    Democrats: 19



    Republicans: 29









    Square miles of land won by:

    Democrats: 580,000
    Republicans: 2,427,000












    Population
    of counties won by:

    Democrats: 127 million
    Republicans: 143 million










    Murder
    rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
    Democrats: 13.2

    Republicans: 2.1







    Professor
    Olson adds: 'In aggregate, the map of the territory
    Republican won was mostly the land owned by the
    taxpaying citizens of this great country. Democrat
    territory mostly encompassed those citizens living
    in government-owned tenements and living off various
    forms of government welfare...' Olson believes the
    United States
    is 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's and they
    vote, then we can say goodbye to the
    USA
    in fewer than five
    years.


























    WE
    LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE
    FREE,
    ONLY BECAUSE OF THE
    BRAVE

    That's why there were little old ladies in Russia who were seeping sidewalks with brooms. They had to work, and that was the only work they were fit for.
