Given the events this week at the Supreme Court and the consolidation of Hillary as the only Democratic candidate (in another life she would be in charge of the Gestapo or the KGB), are you beginning to get the picture?
I ask this because I received two emails from our readers this week that reach the same conclusion for America.
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.
These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage.”
— Alexander Fraser Tytler
The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff. And the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more Free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!
AND THIS IS THEY KEY TO THE HILLARY CAMPAIGN….
Now… The people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.
So… The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.
We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff. Now understand this… All great democracies have committed suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason… The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
Too dark for you??? OK.. Think Greece… OK… Think California… Neither in a million years will ever vote a fiscally conservative government into office again. Oh this makes you feel bad… you want something lighter? Then go to Disneyland with the kids. And when you get home… wake up. What is happening IS as simple and predictable as these two emails sent to me in the same week.
