Beacause the abortion rate is up to 9.8?

Studies show birthrates track economic optimism about the future.

If you don’t have faith in the future (Italy, France, Japan), you don’t have children.

When hard work and accepting personal responsibility creates an incentive to procreate in today's America the birth rate of the makers may someday overtake that of the takers...

...but I ain't holding my breath.

France has a higher birthrate than us. It’s at 2.0 or 2.1 now. And no, not all the baby mothers are Muslim.

Side effect of liberalism. Liberal women squander their childbearing years. Liberal men can’t get liberal women in-the-mood, and can’t get it up anyway.

On the off chance a career-minded woman needs a bit of relief and can find a liberal guy that ain’t shooting blanks ... they wrap the pipes, pop the pill and/or abort the inconvenient consequences.

It’d be interesting to see it broken down by State.

Because Ms. Whitey McCracker-Honkey is too busy with her career to have children!

Because the sudden epidemic of Republicans with no balls has resulted in an all-time record low sperm count.

Non-producers are doing fine, its the productive classes that aren't procreating.

They can no longer afford to.

I wonder what the birthrate is of people who might vote Republican at some time in their life?

I bet it’s way below 1.9.

I’m afraid old white Republicans are dying and being replaced by minorities who vote Dem > 70%.

Theoretically Americans should be breeding the leftists out of the population. Your average rat in Berkeley or Cambridge has 1, maybe 2 kids. Your average middle class or upper middle class conservative has 3, maybe 4. What’s gone wrong? Two things:

Immigration
The Public Screwels getting hold of the minds of those otherwise normal kids and warping them into the government ideology at an early age.

Probably because a lot of people are saying...”I just don’t give a F*ck anymore”

That's probably it. Thanks to Obamanomics.

Is it because the culture of death snuffs out life? Does humanism’s whoredom repel the love and joy of human expression and existence in God’s kingdom?

The thought you give voice to sounds like it has root either in ignorance of what Jesus said, or a lack of faith in it. Jn 16:33 -- "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world"

To say that this world extinguishes the love in God's Kingdom is to deny the power of the King and call him a liar when he said he overcame the world.

Because Western Civilisation is Aborting, Buggering, Contracepting and Sterilising itself out of existence.

Like I have been saying for years ...

It’s too expensive to provide children with even an underclass lifestyle, much less to prepare them for success in today’s hyper-competitive world.

That’s the ironic thing about Social Security. Instead of investing in our young, we are investing in our elderly.

You are right about that. I know I live under Jesus’ reality and care.

The humanist public culture does not effect me except to the extent I have to interact with the pervs and victims who know only that culture. The uglier and more ignornant it gets, the more people suffer and the more hostile it becomes towards Christ and his followers...and towards American freedom.

I live under the mercy of Jesus, but I also interact and am affected by atheism’s garbage society. So do you. If you love others beyond Christians, you should care about the degree of corruption and harm in the public culture because you and your family members are not an island in life. As a Christian you are supposed to be observing and helping the wreckage of humanism’s society.

Fixed.

The problem is not 'others', but the "you and I" that are the Church. If we want freedom for America then we have to act like it and work for it -- how?
The hardest most counter sin-nature way there is:
Mat 5:44 -- But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Lk 6:28 -- Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Lk 6:35 -- But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Simply put, to be Christian we have to act [do] Christian -- otherwise, as said in James -- out faith is dead.

You did not “fix” anything I wrote. You do not comprehend what humanism is and what it is doing today and you don’t understand your role and duty as a Christian in a free society or any society for that matter. I’ll give you a hint. It’s not about you.

Let me guess...a LIEbertarian? LOL

Humanism is the term in Theology, mostly Christian but somewhat Jewish, which is given to the idea (and philosophy built upon) man being a special, and superior, creation among all of God's creation.

This is fact; to call the philosophy stemming from Nietzsche's atheistic worldview "humanism" is to surrender a good and useful term (one that correctly describes man's place in the universe; for mankind is special if for no other reason than God stepped down from heaven to die and thereby save) to the enemy-forces, allowing them to determine the language [and thereby allowed thought] in the argument: IOW, it is nothing less than surrendering.

and what it is doing today

I have eyes to see: and what I see is the mighty struggle for authority. Even Paul saw this and wrote:
Eph 6:12 -- For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

and you don’t understand your role and duty as a Christian in a free society or any society for that matter.

Really? The above seems clear to me that my duty is not to attack people, but philosophies... and you have let the enemy claim 'humanism' as his own - my correction to you of what that word means, really means, has been met with an attack of namecalling ("LIEbertarian").

I’ll give you a hint. It’s not about you.

Really, and here I thought Christianity was a personal relationship with Jesus the Savior; and if that is the case then it is about me [just as is is about Him] because a relationship cannot only be about one person, can it? If it is, show me a son without a father, a mother without a child, a lover without a beloved.

Let me guess...a LIEbertarian?

So? Our [federal] government was designed to be very libertarian: that is the whole point of the Forgotten Amendments:
Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

As you can see, these state that the government is not supposed to do much of what it does... but they were right who said that men suffer evils while they are sufferable.
