Kneecap

By Billy “Kneecap” Braddock

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2000 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 these 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”.

The Obituary Follows: Born 1776, Died 2016.

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University, School of Law in St. Paul Minnesota points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election. Number of States won by Obama 19, Romney 29. Square miles of land won by Obama 580,000, Romney 2,427,000. Murder rate per thousand residents in counties won by Obama 13.2, Romney 2.1.

Professor Olson adds, “In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney won was mostly the land owned by taxpaying citizens of the country. Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenant and living off various forms of government welfare”.

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some 40% of the nation’s population already having reached the government dependency phase. If the President or Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to 20,000,000+ criminal invaders called illegals – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the U.S.A. in fewer than five years.

We have a President who believes he is either a dictator or a king. He constantly informs us that the Constitution is meaningless and he doesn’t believe in the three branches of government by reminding us that he has a pen and a phone and he will bypass Congress. He needs a six-month vacation, twice a year. Our Congress, both the Senate and House of Representatives are controlled by establishment politicians who only care about their perks and their reelection. Sounds like a good time to consider term limits. Our government is the most corrupt it has ever been since its inception.

We need a revolution in this country. Not with pitchforks, torches or guns but with the power of the vote. We have a very important election coming up in November and everyone should realize how much is at stake. Apathy is the greatest danger to our liberty and freedom.

I used to be afraid of dying but now I’m afraid of reincarnation, God Bless our children and grandchildren because they are the ones who will be paying for this.

I’ve got more to say about this in my blog on my website nobodiesopinion.com

See you on the shiny side up tomorrow…
