Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasures, with the result that a democracy always collapses over a not tight bound fiscal policy.

The average age of the world’s great civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.

The political aspirants and their parties seek to garner voters’ vote by promising to give more things to voters by taking it from others. Consider whether this serves America nation’s best interest and the voter’s dignity when you vote on November 6, 2012. BE SURE TO VOTE!
