The Circle of Slavery by Lord Alexander Tyler

In William Federer's book, "The Interesting History of Income Taxes" was this loud and clear message regarding the downward spiral that leads to slavery, sooner or later.  I thought was worthy of posting.  Enjoy and act.

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. 

A democracy will continue to exist until that time voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

From that moment on, the majority always votes with the candidates that promise  the most benefits from the public treasury; with the result that every democracy will finally collaspe due to loose fiscal policy (which is) followed by a dictatorship. 

The average age of of the world's great civilizations, from the beginning of civilization is about 200 years.  During those 200 years, these nations always progressed throught the following sequence:

From bondage to spirtitual faith.
From spiritual faith to great courage.
From courage to liberty.
From liberty to abundance.
From abundance to complacency.
From apathy to dependence.
From dependence into bondage. 

Endnote: Wake up America.  Before you too hear the chains of bondage being applied.  Despite him being a Democrat, maybe we all need to remember those wise words of JFK, "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." Which naturally means to me, wake up America. 

Or by lyrics of Buffalo Springfield: "We better stop, listen and what's that sound?  Everyone look around.  We better stop this from going down. . . .  What a field day for the heat.

Endnote 2: I do not advocate nationalism.  I advocate for the individual.  Just like our founding fathers.  Our goal is a strong nation made by allowing and empowering the individual to succeed and take care of their business, with minimal taxes and a small and limited national government with enumerated powers.

I advocate fair economic policy; not a free market economy.  In politics, a wise stateman understands balancing is always a wise thing; never advocating for any form of extremism, whether that be nationalism or a free market economy.  Both are extreme on the black and white spectrum.  I prefer somewhere in the middle as best we can strive for, by making wise decisions, the best we can get a consensus on, that makes sense for us as a nation of individuals. 

I do not advocate insane self-interest; which as Lord Tyler suggests will merely lead to a dictatorship and a police state, following by the chains of bondage.  So please, stop asking for the bondages of slavery from a huge central government. Loosen the tenacles of the beast.  Better, get an ax and cut off the tenacles.

Quoting Harry Truman, the buck stops here (with Scherer).  No more federal earmarks for any entity lacking a federal nexus.  None.  Nada.  Hear me! Read me.  Hopefully.  Because if you do not, you will hear the chains of bondage, sooner or later.

Anyone that would like to post solutions to make America a better nation as a guest blog author; or has solutions to fix some of the problems in America, send me an essay to Also known as Thomas E. Scherer, your better candidate for United States Congress

Merely remember if I am elected to Congress, you the individual are my boss. PACS, Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups, sorry, but just go away. Americans are tired of the United PACS of America buying and corrupting our congressman and Senators. Our candidate is not for sale.
