Did this guy know what he was talking about?

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. ALEXANDER FRASER TYTLER

  • Tytler was a very smart man, Google the Tytler cycle. It's very scary. And tnmomofive, great video - thanks for posting! I just wish everyone would wake up and see what's happening. Being liberal does not equate to being forward-thinking, it is just the opposite, in fact. They think what the govt and media WANTS them to think.
