America's spending its way into bondage

Page Two worries about where the U.S. is headed. We don't seem to be learning from the past so are doomed to repeat it. Think about this:

"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."

This was written in 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough. Of course, he wasn't talking about the U.S. He was talking about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior.

Does anyone see any resemblance as to what is going on in the USA today? These are the steps taken when a republic falls. 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.

We are between complacency and apathy at the very present. If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to 20 million criminal invaders called illegals -- and they vote -- then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years. Folks, the future of the United States of America is at a turning point. The freedom we enjoy now may soon be gone. Look at what's going on around the world, Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, Africa, and think for just one moment. This could be us! Many will not read this because of the "apathy," but when we lose our rights guaranteed by the Constitution, it will be too late. More later from Page Two.
