Dave, I would be honored to have you use my article as you see fit on your show Saturday!

This is another great quote that is attributed to Sir Alex Fraser Tytler and is supposedly from "The decline and fall of the Athenian Republic" c 1799. It is completely along the lines of what Ann Miller wrote. Feel free to use it on your show as well.

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. Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to
spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage."

I am going to use this on Saturday, with your permission! Exactly what we had been talking about! But I do think that there are people that are chomping at the bit, wanting to fight back, and we have to let them know that is why we have elections.
