Even liberals see the approaching train wreck!
U.S. Birthrate Plummets to lowest level since 1920
More Babies, Please
The facts of the demographic winter are finally getting through to the lame brains in la la land. No babies, no future! An aging population with insufficient replacement means not enough young workers to sustain retirees and create a booming economy.
Of course, the culture of death won't have much trouble with that -- just pass a law requiring everyone over 70 -- oh heck, 65 -- to check into the local exit clinic for a checkup. If they can still work, the docs will send them down one line for a temporary reprieve; if they can't -- off to the showers.
Of course, a shrinking population means fewer consumers and reduced needs: fewer homes, stores, gas stations, hospitals, schools, buses, trains, and planes, etc. Think of the empty storefronts and ghost towns. And horrors! Who will wait on Ted Turner at his favorite restaurants around the world when the population shrinks to his "ideal" of 500 million?
Then there's the drop that makes politicians blanch. Fewer people means less tax revenue. And with a population top heavy with revenue takers like the elderly vs. revenue creators like the young -- well -- the writing is on the wall -- and it's not good news. Pray to be steadfast under trial, because the trial is certainly coming. And even the liberals are starting to see the approaching train wreck. About time!
