I am in the middle of doing a longer post on recent Russian demographic trends, but in the course of doing research I stumbled upon something that was far too interesting to pass up.
Although Russia is often portrayed as a demographic nightmare, a dying bear that is rapidly receding from the world stage and that is doomed to irrelevance, and the United States is often portrayed as enjoying demographics that are uniquely robust among developed nations, I would argue that the reality is quite a bit more complicated. Although America benefits greatly from immigration, its fertility rate has actually consistently been sub-replacement for almost all of the past 20 years. Knowing that, due to the aftereffects of the Great Recession, birth rates in the United States have generally been declining for the past few years and also knowing that birth rates in Russia have been increasing I decided to create a chart showing whats happened since the late 1990′s. Even I was surprised by the extent and the rapidity of the convergence between Russian and American birth rates*:

Not to worry.
Thanks to the Democrat party, we will soon be the Mexico del Norte, with 100 million illegal aliens and their extended families making America a Latino nation the size of India.
With all the Third World baggage that goes with it.
What has happened is that the European-American population has bought into the nation that having children impoverishes the nation. That we should stop having children and use our money for personal consumption. Irony: we no longer manufacture goods nor produce babies, neither create new wealth nor bring new workers into the world.
Doing to the United States what the Labour Government has done to England.
White women in America aren’t interested in having children anymore because they’re too busy being involved in their careers.
As of 2010 Russia’s fertility rate is 1.54 whereas the USA is right at 2.1.
2.1 is the bare minimum replacement level.
Are you expecting Russia to meet or exceed 2.1 any time soon?
Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in a net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 310 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by an additional 130 million to 440 million. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the worlds third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country in the world, i.e., 0.889% (2011 estimate,) principally due to immigration.
The US fertility rate is 2.06 children born/woman (2011 est.)
Russia has a population growth rate of -0.48% (2011 est.) Its total fertility rate is 1.43 children born/woman (2011 est.).
Russia life expectancy: total population: 66.46 years
US life expectancy: total population: 78.49 years
The above figures come from the CIA World Factbook
I question the globalists’ notion that we need to overpopulate the US to save the US. It does us no good in keeping jobs here. We just pay out the wahzoo for the chaos of overpopulation and the globalist’s enforced and orchestrated foreign tribalism.
Over populated Nations should stay that way and not ship their surplus to Western nations.
This global trade scheme works for globalists - not the people and Nations of the West. It is time for the experiment to end.
I would be interested to know the population growth rates in the heavily Muslim areas of Russia versus the Caucasian areas.
The very concept of “over population” is a leftist Malthusian construct.
It is the theoretical framework for socialism,abortion,and other forms of genocide.
There are no “over populated” nations simply inefficient economies.
From China,Pakistan,Nigeria et al.
Anyone else notice that the decline in the US began in 2007... following the first full year after the Dems took control of the House and Senate?
I think folks realized the economy was going to worsen under Dem control and because they could override a Bush veto.
There are no over populated nations simply inefficient economies.
We have mass invasion. And it will get much worse if the globalists have their way. That is what we have. Give me a different term to use.
