Skip to comments.Immigration Not A Fix For An Aging Population
Posted on 12/06/2012 12:43:53 PM PST by zeestephen
Based on Census Bureau estimates, USA population will increase from 309 million in 2010 to 436 million in 2050, mostly from immigration - However, the working-age (18-65) share of the population will grow only slightly faster.

If the Census Bureau estimate is correct, our population will grow 127 million by 2050.
127 million is more than the combined population of France and the U.K.
The immigrant (legal and illegal) share of the population will reach nearly one in five residents by 2050.
"Assuming the Census Bureaus immigration level, 58 percent of the population will be of working-age in 2050, compared to 57 percent if there is NO immigration."
Advocates for "Open Borders" take no account of how a massive increase in population will impact our infrastructure, our economy, or our political stability.
"Open Borders" advocates claim that no country can have a growing economy if the population is steady or declining.
But what is the outer limit for USA population?
1 billion? 5 billion?
Eventually, immigration must stop.
Then we will have exactly the SAME problem we had BEFORE we imported billions of new citizens.
You know WHAT is a “fix” for an “Aging” population Marital SEX and ABOLISHING ABORTION!
Or consider what is being done to America by those embracing the cult of "Diversity."
Maybe not, but it's a fix for not enough government-dependent Democrat voters.
That's why we're getting it.
It upheld the Roman Empire in an economic bubble...
until it burst.
Is it bursting here, Duh?
Thanks for your links.
I try hard to keep my posts narrowly focused on one issue so readers can take away one idea.
Believe me, I know EVERYTHING that’s happening because of massive immigration, and I’ve probably posted on all of them at least once.
The most frightening fact of all...
New Hispanic citizens vote 80% for the Democrat Party!
We will, however, have fewer citizens who are able to discern that there is a problem.
Which is the goal, IMO.
Keep posting. We will lose everything if we give up!
I forgot my main point.
I subscribe to daily emails from the allegedly Conservative magazines “Commentary” and “The Weekly Standard.”
Both of them have writers that claim America must have high levels of immigration or we will have no economic growth.
Those guys are really pounding that idea now that so many Republicans are claiming that the GOP must pacify Hispanic voters and endorse Amnesty.
Forget that noise, man!
Feel free to use anything of mine, so long as you do not quote me out of context. (Context is vital to making one's points.)
“USA population will increase from 309 million in 2010 to 436 million in 2050, mostly from immigration”
And yet the Republican/Dhimmicrat Industrial Complex can’t get enough immigration, legal or illegal, to suit it.
The disconnect between the people and their overlords is staggering.
Duh. Immigration isn’t a fix for any problem in our country, although it’s a fix for the “living in a pesthole” problem many people in the world have.
Your website is impressive.
Your December essay touches on four issues close to my heart...natural inequality, creating wealth, immigration, and constitutional literalism.
If our candidates would make the effort to internalize the basic principles of Conservative thought - as you have - they could avoid a lot of embarrassment and win a lot more elections.
I’m going to try to visit your website once a day until I work through your archive.
I entered the figurative "lists," as it were, before I left High School, many decades ago; and deliberately attended a very "Liberal" College, precisely to develop the most effective ways to counter what was already in progress. Nothing makes me happier than to help others, on our side, with the tools to better engage.
Once the Academic Left began to embrace Fabian tactics, they became much more effective in gaming various segments of the population. The Corporate Management type, always overly focused on immediate business concerns, including the pursuit of performance bonuses and the like, are little better able to resist being narrowly focused to chase short-term benefits, than are the politicians in Washington.
In other words, while it seems to make sense to many on our side to look for some sort of diabolic globalist plot, benefiting business; if one recognizes the destruction of healthy societies all over the West, and the long term effect on many of those same business interests--which ultimately reflect actual people, not inanimate objects--it becomes obvious that stupidity, not greed, is the dominant factor.
Always try to understand the specific focus of anyone, at anytime, to better understand the how & whys of conduct.
