About the time our original thirteen states adopted
their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a
Scottish history professor at the University of
Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
"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 they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury." "From that moment on,
the majority always vote for the candidates who promise
the most benefits from the public treasury, with the
result that every democracy will finally collapse due
to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a
"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations
from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years.
”During those 200 years, those nations always progressed
through the following sequences:
1. from bondage to spiritual faith;
2. from spiritual faith to great courage;
3. from courage to liberty;
4. from liberty to abundance;
5. from abundance to complacency;
6. from complacency to apathy;
7. from apathy to dependence;
8. from dependence back into bondage"
Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School
of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some
interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of
the territory Republicans won was mostly the land
owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country.
Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens
living in government-owned tenements 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 "governmental

A scandal has been emerging in the trial lawyer industry. It points to a potentially cancerous growth in our economy that is killing jobs and hampering prosperity at a time when families are being pummeled by the rising cost of living.1996 mid-term elections sweep Democrats into power buoyed by the Democrat mime “The Culture of Corruption” intimating that all Republicans were corrupt and Democrats would clean up the Washington D.C.
What are Democrats in Congress planning to do about it? So far, the answer has been: nothing.—Rep. John Boehner
It’s been two years since Democrats rolled up their sleeves to clean up D.C. so just how are the Dems doing? Well according to John Boehner, R-Ohio, minority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives Democrats are doing nothing to stop major corruption in their own Party.
That’s right true believers there is corruption in the Democrat Party according to Boehner Democrats and the trial lawyers industry are worsening our economy, killing jobs and hampering prosperity at a time when families need protection from out of control spiraling cost.
Case in point a federal judge sentenced prolific plaintiffs' lawyer William S. Lerach to two years in prison in a criminal prosecution in which he and his former law firm, Milberg Weiss, were accused of paying kickbacks to plaintiffs in securities-fraud lawsuits against major corporations.
Just what does that have to do with the Democrats? Well it seems that trial lawyers have Democrats in their back pocket and the most corrupt of these Milberg Weiss (Bill and Hillary Clinton supporters) officials masterminded a $250 million illegal kickback scheme involving their clients, and then lied in court about their actions.
“The scope and the breadth of this conspiracy was breathtaking,” said U.S. District Judge John Walter, who sentenced Mr. Lerach, adding that the crimes involved go “to the core of our judicial system.”
Democrat associated trial lawyers corrupting the very core of the judicial system? That doesn’t sound like cleaning up the culture of corruption to me that sounds like corrupting the third branch of our government. And it sounds like the aiding and abetting of such.
More disturbingly, Mr. Lerach himself told The Wall Street Journal his illegal conduct and that of his law partners was an “industry practice.” At his sentencing, one of his supporting letters quoted Mr. Lerach as saying, “Everybody was paying plaintiffs so they could bring their cases.”According to Rep. John Boehner The trial lawyer industry is a major source of campaign cash for the Democratic majority, which has happily accommodated the industry’s agenda that means Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich. are both powerful allies of the trial lawyers industry.
If in fact Mr. Lerach’s crimes are an “industry practice,” then the Milberg Weiss scandal has revealed a clear and present threat to our nation’s prosperity.
Hey wasn’t John Conyers holding mock trials prior to 2006 showing what he would do to if he were Chairman of the house Judiciary Committee and how he would prosecute George Bush if Democrats took power in 2006. Well Rep. Conyers is now Chairman due to the 2006 Democrat take over of Congress.
One would think that with such a zeal for prosecuting Rep. Conyers would be all over this affront to American working families by the corrupted trial lawyers industry yet Conyers and the majority Democrat Congress has chosen to look the other way.
So apparently the only thing that has changed is the Congressional leadership yet the corruption, the “Culture of Coruption” remains the same.
