Voters: This Is Why Obama Must Be Fired in November

From the blog CommonSense Government:

In 1887, a Scottish history professor at the University of
, 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.”

There couldn’t be more at stake than on Nov 2012.

    McNaughton is amazing.

  2. The first Tea Party slogan was “no taxation without representation.” The colonists had no voice in the British government, but were expected to contribute to it. We’ve reversed that. We have representation without taxation. When the country was founded, only people with a physical stake in the country could vote. Boarders did not own a piece of America. When the country was founded, the Senate was appointed by the state legislature to represent the interests of their state. Now, Senators represent the interests of their party.

    The United State has always had direct democracy. People can vote for their Congressman, their governor, their state legislator and indirectly for their president. Any more than that and it becomes mob rule.
