A few fascinating data points Michael Barone dug out of the United States census data:
…The eight states with no state income tax grew 18 percent in the last decade. The other states (including the District of Columbia) grew just 8 percent.
The 22 states with right-to-work laws grew 15 percent in the last decade. The other states grew just 6 percent.
The 16 states where collective bargaining with public employees is not required grew 15 percent in the last decade. The other states grew 7 percent…
That all referring to population growth. Now, our Culture of Death liberals are probably pretty pleased with that…people having such a negative impact on the environment, and all that. But the fact of the matter is that if you’re population isn’t growing, then you’re starting to die.
My bet is that when you break it down by counties, it will become even more stark. That is, I bet that when you get California taken apart piece by piece, it will be shown that the liberal enclaves of Los Angele, San Francisco and Sacramento had even less growth than California, as a whole (with the understanding that LA might dodge this because so many illegals have poured in there…but as LA deteriorates, I bet the illegals start moving out). In fact, I’ve already seen some data which indicate that San Francisco has been suffering a net loss of population, year by year, for several years now (no surprise…who could raise a child in that city? On the one hand the cost of living is outrageous, on the other hand you have to deal with nauseating filth like this – warning , NSFW).
Liberalism is a pact with death – an ideology of essential selfishness married to despair. It is a demand to be taken care of when you’re too indolent to take care of yourself. It is a demand to be considered wise when you’re acting a fool. It is a demand to be considered loving when each act is another bit of spite and hatred. And it doesn’t work. Places where liberalism is dominant become like Detroit – urban wastelands. Or like London this past weekend – the abode of spoiled layabouts rioting for welfare. In neither case does liberalism allow what is most natural to humanity – hard working, sober and thrifty men and women just getting together to start families and raise kids in a decent society. The census data just demonstrates what common sense already knows.
And this is why we must win – because if we don’t, then we die. It really is just as simple as that. Give America two generations of what the liberals really want (high taxes, high welfare, anti-business policies, weak military, subordinate to the UN, rampant pornography and abortion) and this nation will be firmly on the path to extinction, as most of Europe is now…after two generations of applied liberalism (yes, I know it some times calls itself socialism over there – tomato, tomahto…). The rot hasn’t gone that far in the United States. There is still in America a sufficiently large population convinced that traditional morality is best – with this leaven, we can entirely restore American greatness. But not for two much longer…each year, the number of such Americans decreases while the number of State dependents grows. We must act quickly, and win such a crushing victory that we obtain the power to start rolling the left back.
With that in mind, get ready for 2012…
