Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2008 Presidential election:

        Number of States won by:

               Democrats: 19

               Republicans: 29

      Square miles of land won by:

               Democrats: 580,000

               Republicans: 2,427,000

     Population of counties won by:

               Democrats: 127 million

               Republicans: 143 million

     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 Republican 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 forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the governmental dependency phase.

   If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders, called illegals, and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA.
