Skip to comments.California’s Demographic Revolution (More proof CA = Doomed)
Posted on 02/13/2012 7:58:15 AM PST by C19fan
California is in the middle of a far-reaching demographic shift: Hispanics, who already constitute a majority of the states schoolchildren, will be a majority of its workforce and of its population in a few decades. This is an even more momentous development than it seems. Unless Hispanics upward mobility improves, the state risks becoming more polarized economically and more reliant on a large government safety net. And as California goes, so goes the nation, whose own Hispanic population shift is just a generation or two behind.

“My work is done”.
If the blank hits the fan perhaps my last wish would be to go to Arlington dig up Ted and put his head on a pike.

Hahaha... they won’t have any more clue as to how to run the place than did the white liberals they’re pushing out.
However, when they finally take over, at least hollowed-out Kalifornia’ll be nicely landscaped, stuccoed and painted. :-)
The funny thing about this story is that the writer seems genuinely surprised that moving millions of poor Mexicans into the state has made it more like Mexico, and less like California.
Ordinarily, a loving parent would struggle to retrieve an errant child from that which is destroying it. I see no evidence of that and can only conclude that the "parent" in this case is at least equally destructive as the child that it fathered. California must now be left to its own devices and those devices will likely bring its death. We are obligated as siblings to utter some comforting words as it is laid to rest. Perhaps Mexico would agree to receive the corpse.
The Country Club California Democrats don’t need a middle class. As a matter of fact, they’d like the middle class to leave California so there would be less traffic and fewer people on the beaches. They just need enough people to mow their lawns, do their laundry, etc.....
“Perhaps we should just give CA back to Mexico then militarize the border to prevent the cancer from spreading.”
Within 10 years, “we” are not going to be in a position to “give” anything.
Quite the contrary, California is going to go its own way as a part of “emerging Atzlan”.
This doesn’t bode well for Arizona and New Mexico, either. Consider that NM has already gone “minority-majority”. That is to say, “Anglos” are now a -minority- in New Mexico.
There is no way around the mathematics of this. Demography is destiny.
Remember Ann Lander’s “question” to women:
“Would you be better off with him, or withOUT him?”
Conservatives should start seriously considering the question:
“Would a traditional America be better off with California, or withOUT it?”
“unless Hispanics’ upward mobility improves”
I’ve read that in the second or third generation of Mexican immigrants, upward mobility and assimilation actually goes backward a little except for in one segment of the population: those who attended Catholic schools. The Catholic schools move the kids up and forward into mainstream America.
Not coincidentally, Obama wants to use Obamacare against the Catholic schools.
Would it be non-PC to wonder whether it also be run by the Zetas or one of their brethren organization?
I’m willing to bet it will be a hispanic California that finally closes the border with Mexico. Why, you ask? The Mexican border with central America is far more militarized than the American border with Mexico. Troops kill people down there.
Hopefully one day the hispanic government in California gets sick of the Mexicans. It would be ironic.
Mexicans are pro-family, hate gays, and want to work. If they are already in the gates, perhaps we can convert them and hoist the dems on their own sword?
That will take a lot of conversion, Catholic and secular Hispanics vote about 70% Democrat.
We might as well cut our loses and sell Kalifornia. Of course we’ll need to be willing to prevent the spread of the Locust People or we’ll need to sell many more states in the future.
The big problem will come when the illegals are given citizenship and then their voting clout will force the US to open its borders completely and without restriction not only to Mexico but to every other country in the world and then America will be over as you know it without every firing a shot.
Actually the article answers that.
“Hispanics reliance on the government safety net helps explain their ongoing support for the Democratic Party. Indeed, liberal spending policies are a more important consideration for Hispanic voters than ethnic identification or the so-called values issues that they are often said to favor. What Republicans mean by family values and what Hispanics mean are two completely different things, says John Echeveste, founder of the oldest Latino marketing firm in Southern California and a player in California Latino politics. We are a very compassionate people; we care about other people and understand that government has a role to play in helping people.
California is headed for Third World status.
In what way, after reading that article, do you conclude that Mexicans who move to the US are behaviorally “pro-family”?
My fear is that if there is a 2nd Obama term, they will somehow figure out how to let CA, IL, and NY issue federally guaranteed state bonds.
