Skip to comments.America Is Doomed Unless Women Start Having More Babies. How Convenient.
Posted on 02/10/2013 12:03:55 PM PST by MinorityRepublican
Ever since it became less socially acceptable to argue openly that womenat least white, middle-class womenowe it to men to curtail our professional ambitions in favor of a life as our husbands' support staff, conservatives started to panic about declining birth rates. If women don't start making more babies, they dimly warn, the country is headed for catastrophe as the workplace empties out of workers and retirees suck up all the money and people stop caring about the future. (Because we can't care about the children we do have unless we have more of them, for some reason.) To save America, women, especially those aforementioned pesky middle-class, white women, are going to have to start having more babies at a younger age, the argument goes.

How utterly racist. No black babies (oh wait, the Democrats are working with PP to forestall that), no Asian babies born of mothers from China, Korea, elsewhere here on a “birth vacation to have an American Baby”, no poor downtrodden Mexican illegal anchor babies?
How racist to expect that a country orginally comprised largely comprised of whites now expects that its white women propagate the species...... the effing nerve......what about all them little Mexican anchor babies whose mothers apparently are doing the job white women don’t want to do....
Don’t forget that the writer used to work for Silky Pony and was so vile she managed to get herself fired from there.
Ms. Marcotte has fallen victim to the same fatal flaw as the rest of our current culture: She gives NO consideration at all to the wise purposes or plan of her Creator.
A great disaster had befallen Russia: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened. ...Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
The one good thing about declining birth rates is that it will eventually destroy the welfare state. This Ponzi scheme collapses pretty quickly if you don’t have more people paying into the system than taking out of it. If feminists were truly concerned about maintaining the welfare state, they would encourage woman to have more children, but this conflicts with their fantasy about being able to have it all without any consequences.
It took 20 years. But the Bear is back.
Indeed. Exactly how do Miss Marcotte and others who share her worldview think older people will be taken care of when they do not reproduce enough folks to take over their responsibilities as they retire?
Perhaps someone should set this author up with this guy(I mean David Benatar, not Al Mohler)-
Yeah, she wouldn't put out.
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don't work you die.”
Eh. Not my type.
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 315 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by an additional 125 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 (except for Ireland and Australia, which have lower fertility rates) in the world, i.e., 0.9% (2012 estimate,) principally due to immigration.
The US will not be declining in population anytime soon.
Liberalism is the destroyer of civilization. Liberalism is decadent. Liberalism is evil.
History shows us this as well. It was after the Black Death in the 14th century that wiped out approximately 30% of the population of Europe at that time. (Historians please correct me if this percentage is incorrect!)
It was in the aftermath of the plague that the system in force at that time of serfdom was broken because there simply was not the abundance of labor anymore. This marked the rise of the middle class and the ability of free men to accumulate wealth.
Amanda needs take a chill pill. No one is going to take here momentous career away from you. Frankly, I am glad she isn’t having any ‘little Amandas.’
She looks like Jeff Daniels.
Just from what you describe, the America is sinking in population of Americans. People who grew up with adoring the values of our Founding Fathers.
As someone who's lived in CA for the last 20 years, I can see how immigration to this degree has fundamentally altered our culture, and not for the better.
(As a son of an immigrant, I am not anti-immigrant. But they have to immerse themselves in our language and culture, not the other way around.)
Recently, immigration to the U.S. is declining and in the near future, anti-resistant bacteria is going to wipe out a significant portion of World’s population. (Just think anti-drug resistant TB)
Thank you Amanda for not procreating, you really are doing America a favor.. However please explain why Liberals always seem to situate abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods. Liberalism is the practice of nihilism.
She makes an awful lot of assumptions about women (and men).
No one has to end up as “support staff” if they don’t want to. That is a choice that two people make when they decide to procreate. It doesn’t HAVE to be the woman who becomes “support staff”. She just makes that assumption because appeasement to the status quo is all she knows.
Feminists are oddly adherred to the status quo I’ve found. On the whole they are not very imaginative or adventurous so they just assume no one else is.
Most of these immigrants are low-skilled with low-income potential. How are these types of workers going to pay for an ever-increasing silver-haired population? Answer — they cannot.
Hispanics, Muslims and blacks have high birth rates and are immigrating to the U.S. in droves. They will keep the U.S. population birthrate relatively stable. The problems is that these folks will not be adding but taking from the public treasury so the kind of taxpayer subsidized day-care-from-infancy that Ms Marcotte so values as the way to middle class white women’s ‘freedom’ from boring, career-stifling motherhood will likely no longer be sustainable.
I seriously doubt that she ever has to worry about getting bc pills.
“The US will not be declining in population anytime soon.”
No, not a population “decline”.
Rather, a “population replacement”.
America is literally being changed into an entirely different nation via demographics...
And the “America” of the replacements being born will bear little resemblance to the America of the Euros who are slowly, but surely, disappearing...
Chill Amanda I quit drinking so hooking up with you is not going to happen. Now go wash my shirt.
Actually, the birth rate is 1.958 for Black Americans (including black Hispanics), which is lower than France’s at 2.02.
Death panels perhaps????
The ironic thing is, opinions matter little. The side that has more people will win.
Being a mother is hard work, sad that the money needs of society makes it harder. Families are disappearing. Children are costly. Abortion and the pill beckon, like Captain Ahab, to what is perceived to be the good life. God’s increase and multiply are overcome. We beat God. Really?
This is changing. The birth rates are falling around the globe, which includes immigrants here and it also means that there are less to immigrate. Hispanic immigration is currently estimated to have stopped, and it would not be surprising if it reversed, because Mexico is actually growing faster than we are now, and probably will for several years at least.
If we depend upon immigration to keep our population stable, and Latinos do not come, then we will probably start importing from muslim countries.
“The US will not be declining in population anytime soon.”
The Jews of the northern kingdom didn’t have to worry either after the Assyrians conquered them because the Assyrians removed them and replaced them with their own people.
The long-lost, evil twin of Jeff Daniels?
Who is that guy?
Everyone with enough work ethic to dig a ditch or enough intelligence to repair a vehicle should be having children—lots of them. All who sit on their rear ends and regulate against others having children, on the other hand,...

We are being colonized. By 2050 the rest of the US will look like CA demographically. It is LEGAL IMMIGRATION that is killing us.
Or, more like middle-class men need to marry women who are interested in becoming mothers and their husbands' support.
LEGAL immigration is not declining. We are still taking in 1.2 million a year and that number will go up because of lack of quotas on certain immigration categories like spouses and children. There are over 4 million intending immigrants waiting overseas to enter this country. They are just waiting for their number to come up after completing all the required paperwork.
Illegal immigration is allegedly down due the sagging economy and better immigration enforcement. I don't put too much stock in the government estimates, which are meant to fool the public so they can push for an amnesty.
Exactly. We are importing poverty. 57% of immigrant headed households with children are on welfare. Legal immigration is destroying this country far more than illegal immigration. 25% of the adult legal immigrants lack even a high school degree. We are importing hundreds of thousands of high school dropouts. And if we have an amnesty, we will legalize millions of more high school dropouts. 50% to 60% of the estimated 11 million (probably closer to 20 million) illegal aliens lack even a high school degree.
87 percent of the 1.2 million legal immigrants entering annually are minorities as defined by the U.S. Government and almost all of the illegal aliens are minorities. By 2019 half of the children 18 and under in the U.S. will be classified as minorities and by 2042, half of the residents of this country will be minorities. Generally, immigrants and minorities vote predominantly for the Democrat Party. Hence, Democrats view immigration as a never-ending source of voters that will make them the permanent majority party.
You are absolutely correct. Combine worldwide immigration, the widespread implementation of modern birth control in the 1960’s and legal abortion, America has been forever transformed. Goodbye America, hello Brazil.
Nonsense. We take in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year. Where do you think they are coming from?
The nations immigrant population (legal and illegal) reached 40 million in 2010, the highest number in our history. The U.S. immigrant population has doubled since 1990, nearly tripled since 1980, and quadrupled since 1970, when it stood at 9.7 million.
Of the 40 million immigrants in the country in 2010, 13.9 million arrived in 2000 or later making it the highest decade of immigration in American history, even though there was a net loss of jobs during the decade. Growth in the immigrant population has primarily been driven by high levels of legal immigration. Roughly three-fourths of immigrants in the country are here legally. With nearly 12 million immigrants, Mexico was by far the top immigrant-sending country, accounting for 29 percent of all immigrants and 29 percent of growth in the immigrant population from 2000 to 2010. The median age of immigrants in 2010 was 41.4 compared to 35.9 for natives.
My point is that we are not losing population. The proponents of high immigration like to use the argument that we need more immigrants to either do jobs Americans won’t do or cannot do. This is nonsense.
