…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Somehow we can’t get away from the subject of the last American presidential elections. It is likely that shortly we will have here a TV interview between Garry Franchi and Tom Woods, which I recommend in advance. As you can guess Tom Woods, a historian, is saying things which I would if I could.
Various authors wrote on demography as destiny of our civilisation. I may just mention the more memorable Walter Laquer – The Last Days of Europe, David P. Goldman a.k.a Spengler – How Civilisations Die and Mark Steyn – America Alone.
Australia is neither Europe nor America, but thanks to our socialists, who don’t understand the difference, are incapable of independent thought and who slavishly copy American “progressives” we have almost the same problems. I would not be surprised if they started demanding that the original inhabitants of Australia be called “African-Australians”. Don’t laugh; our Left is so stupid they still believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming. “Thanks”, The Guardian.
America had her last chance [Fog of Chaos – Day of Infamy] and Australia, unless Gillard/Conroy clique declare extraordinary emergency, will have her chance to vote the incompetents out at the latest in November 2013. It will not be easy then and the time after that would be even harder. Is there anything to learn from America’s mistakes?
Ms Ann Coulter (Ann Hart Coulter, d.o.b. 8-12-1961, an American lawyer, conservative social and political commentator, authoress of eight books and syndicated columnist) has somewhat different opinion about the causes of the defeat of Republican Party from those of Mr Kincaid [Fog of Chaos – It’s the media] or Mr Skarka [Fog of Chaos – Death of Republic]. On November 14, 2012 she published DEMOGRAPHY IS DESTINY [link to full article]
Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they’ve persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas.
Democrats haven’t changed anyone’s mind. They changed the people.
When East German communists had troubles (not of electioneering kind) with their subjects it was suggested that if not the policies, then people would have to be changed.
More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points — the widest margin since 1984.
But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate. Not only that, but the non-white electorate is far more Democratic than it was in 1980.
If the same country that voted in 1980 had voted in 2012, Romney would have won a bigger landslide than Reagan did.
Most Americans don’t realize that, decades ago, the Democrats instituted a long-term plan to gradually turn the United States into a Third World nation. The country would become poorer and less free, but Democrats would have an unbeatable majority!
Under Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act, our immigration policy changed from one that replicated the existing ethnic population to one that strictly favored unskilled immigrants from the Third World. Since 1968, 85 percent of legal immigrants have come from what is euphemistically called “developing countries.”
We can’t admit computer scientists from Spain fleeing their failing socialist nation because we have to make room for a recent Senegalese immigrant’s brother-in-law with no skills but great needs.
That is practically the same policy as applied in Australia.
Because recent immigrants have no skills, they arrive in dire need of government assistance. Their desperation has been an enormous boon to the Democratic Party.
Thirty-nine percent of native households receive some form of government assistance. By contrast, 57 percent of immigrant households — legal immigrants — get government assistance. We can’t do anything about the native population, but why on Earth is America taking in immigrants who require taxpayer support?
If you come to America and immediately go on welfare, by definition, you are not a desirable immigrant. Except as a voter for the Democratic Party.
Australian Labor Party hopes that mafia chieftains and imams will direct their flock to vote socialist. They will – but for a price of more and more concessions. Gratefulness to infidels is not in their dictionaries.
Republicans’ low-tax, small-government philosophy will eventually become popular with today’s struggling Hispanics, but not before America is ruined with socialist policies promoted by populist hucksters so strangely beguiling to poor people the world over.
It’s not that poor immigrants think differently about most issues from the rest of us. Try asking a recent immigrant:
– How do you feel about abortion?
It’s taking a life.
– What should we do about criminals?
Lock them up and throw away the key.
– Do you support raising taxes?
No, the government takes too much already.
– How do you feel about overpaid, well-pensioned government workers with no-show jobs?
It ticks me me off.
– Do you support gay marriage?
– How are you going to vote?
Most recent immigrants oppose abortion, gay marriage and big government. The problem is that poor, uneducated people — the Democratic base — are easily demagogued into voting tribally.
A growing and increasingly vocal group of recent arrivals demanding sharia law is not yet problem in America. In Australia sharia precepts are making inroads, especially in family law courts, where the judges are second only to human rights and discrimination commissars in political correctness and in undermining the family and the democratic system. Polygamy, technically illegal in Australia, is tacitly approved.
A white person can vote for a Republican or a Democrat without anyone saying to him, “HOW CAN YOU VOTE AGAINST YOUR RACE?” But that is exactly how poor Hispanics and blacks are pressured into voting Democratic.
Noticeably, the No. 1 issue Obama had in his favor this year was not his policies. It was that a majority of voters agreed with the statement: Obama “cares for people like me.”
Wow. Perhaps the majority of American voters not only votes, but also thinks with their female parts. [link] What times we live in!
