I just want to share an excerpt from Neal Boortz’s treatise, To the Undecided Voter:

There’s a quote that’s been floating around since I began my talk radio career. This quote is most often attributed to someone named Alexander Tyler writing in 1787 about the fall of the Athenian Republic. Others have said the guy’s name was Tytler. Let’s not argue spelling right now … let’s just get to the quote, because the quote goes to the heart of this presidential election:

“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 that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes 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 dictatorship.”

Think about this, my friends. Isn’t this exactly what we’re seeing right now? In fact, hasn’t this pretty much been the theme of Democrat Party election politics for nearly as long as you can remember? Here we have Barack Obama promising that he’s only going to raise taxes on the evil rich who make over $250,000 a year while 95% of Americans will get tax cuts. Think of this in terms of votes; higher taxes for 5% of the voters, lower taxes for the other 95%. It really doesn’t take all that much brainpower to figure out how this is going to work at in an election does it? You take money away from the people whose votes you don’t need, and give it to the people whose votes you do need. So very simple. The result is that people have, in fact, discovered that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. Who is promising those wonderful goodies? That would be Barack Obama. Just what percentage of voters out there do you think are going to vote for Obama simply because he is promising them someone else’s money? My guess is that the number would be high enough to constitute the margin of victory for The Great Redistributionist.

Somehow I had this idea when I was growing up that if you wanted something bad enough, you would work hard until you got it. That was then. This is now. Now you vote for it. That’s change you can believe in.

Can’t you see that the end is in sight and that there is no light at the end of this tunnel? A vote for Barack Obama is a vote to end the democratic republic as we’ve always known it and, perhaps, to end it completely.

I know that I’ve said for awhile that I could not decide how I was going to cast my vote.  I’ve known for awhile that I could not cast my vote for Barack Obama because he and I disagree on almost everything regarding how this country should be run, but I could not decide between casting my vote for John McCain or a third-party candidate.  Well, I’ve decided now that despite the fact that McCain won’t necessarily turn our country around but, at the very least, won’t make it worse, I must vote for him instead of for the Libertarian or Constitution Party candidates.  I do not feel I am just being a fear-monger or an alarmist when I say I believe that the prospect of an Obama presidency presents our country with, perhaps, the greatest danger it has ever faced.  If we can hold him off, we may have a chance in four years to put someone in office who can truly change the direction of this nation to more closely match the vision of our Founding Fathers, but if we cannot hold him off, then I fear we may never again have this chance.

So I urge you now, please read these articles and commentaries.  Most of them are really short.  The one by Neal Boortz is really long, but it is DEFINITELY worth reading.  And, now, without further ado, the articles and commentaries:
