Like Spain, we have just capitulated to the extreme Islamists and the George Soros socialists. The apathetic, and greedy self-interest voter, has made his/her choice. The voter has chosen; European style socialism over the capitalist free market system, Islam over Christianity, bondage over liberty, and punishment of achievement over self reliance. President Bush took the War on Terror to the enemy and his soil; Obama will capitulate and bring the war to our soil, and we will defend our borders with a smaller military. Instead of learning the lessons of other failed socialistic governments, sadly we have decided to join them.
History has proven that 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) usually 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 have progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith
From spiritual faith to great courage
From great courage to liberty
From liberty to abundance
From abundance to complacency
From complacency to apathy
From apathy to governmental dependency
From governmental dependency back into bondage
Thanks to these duped voters, we will now progress rather quickly from the “complacency to apathy” stage to the “apathy to governmental dependency” stage. And, then we will awake some morning and find ourselves in the “governmental dependency back into bondage” stage!
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. . . . .
