Push 1 For English ~ Push 2 For Deported

Apathy Is Dangerous For Our Country and To Our Freedom

Thoughts to ponder

How Long Do We Have?

About the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in 1787, 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 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 due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these 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 Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:

Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million;
Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000 States won by: Gore: 19 Bush: 29
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by Gore: 13.2 Bush: 2.1

Professor Olson adds:

"In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens. Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements living off government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency & apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some 40 percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

Pass this along to help everyone realize that apathy is also one the greatest danger to our freedom.

Thank you Robert H. for the Video of this!

Rush Limbaugh VIDEO of transcript below....<

Rush Limbaugh transcript quote:

“All right, immigration proposals under discussion. Let me add mine to the mix. I want to call this proposal the Limbaugh Laws. …First, if you immigrate to the United States of America, you must speak the native language. You have to be a professional or an investor. [America is] not going to take unskilled workers…There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, no government business will be conducted in your native language. Foreigners will not have the right to vote…nor will they ever be allowed to hold political office. According to the Limbaugh Laws, if you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled, ever, to welfare, to food stamps, or other government goodies. You can come if you invest here, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If you don't know have that amount of money, you can't come and invest. You have to stay home. If you do come and you want to buy land, okay, but we're going to restrict your options. You will not be allowed to buy waterfront property in the United States. That will be reserved for citizens naturally born in this country.”

“In fact, as a foreigner, you must relinquish individual rights to property… Another thing. You don't have the right to protest when you come here. You're allowed no demonstrations, you cannot wave a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies, or you get sent home. You're a foreigner. You shut your mouth or you get out, and if you come here illegally, you go straight to jail and we're going to hunt you down 'til we find you.” End of quote.

Now guess what those laws that Rush did a great job describing, are actual laws of Mexico, today. I just read you Mexican immigration law. That's how the Mexican government handles immigrants to their country!!!! And Rush did a great job putting it like that to show how different it is here.

1860: "But if we can't have our African slaves, who will pick the cotton?"

2006: "But if we can't have our illegal aliens, who will pick the lettuce?"

It was wrong then, and it's wrong now!

Jose can you see
While you sneak through the night
As so proudly we fail
Close the border you're crossing

You need stripes and steel bars
Not a handout, that's right
On our tv's we watch
All the programs you're raping

But the fact you don't care
You think you should be there
Gives proof for our fight
That your debts we won't bear

Oh say does that Star Spangled Banner
yet wave
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave

Billy (and Francis Scott Key)

I agree with Rush I don't like the idea that they
are comparing themselves to blacks and slavery
blacks' were forced into slavery and brought to
this country they didn't have a choice so the
mexicans can stop comparing themselves to people
who were forced into slavery We don't want your
drug dealers, rapist murderers or molesters I don't
want you waving your flag or your protests take
them back to Mexico and try that maybe we should
use the Mexican immigration laws
