Baby bust: US fertility rates hit all-time lows
Al Jazeera America ^ | June 26, 2014 | Haya El Nasser

The impact of the U.S. recession will reverberate for generations to come as women — both Anglos and Hispanics — continue to postpone having children.

For the second year in a row, deaths of non-Hispanic whites outnumbered births from July 1, 2012, to July 1, 2013, according to population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

“These are the only two years in U.S. history when more non-Hispanic whites died than were born,” said Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute. Births have been fewer for some time, “but the decline since the onset of the Great Recession has been precipitous.”

The Census Bureau estimates that there were just under 2 million births to whites who are not Hispanic, compared with 2.3 million births at the peak of the economic boom in 2006–07 — a 13 percent drop in just six years.

National suicide courtesy of the left (abortion, declining economy).

Part of it is mass immigration, people don’t want to have kids in Los Angeles anymore.

One reason that there is white flight, is that people who want kids, want to move to a better place to raise them, one that resembles California of 50 years ago and a place that they can pretend to not know the future that awaits them.

Why else do you think the ruling elite of both parties is dead set on bringing in millions of immigrants legally or illegally?

My thoughts, too; I’m waiting to leave the bay area before I have any children. Can’t stand the liberal atmosphere, as it’s both toxic to children and myself.

“Why else do you think the ruling elite of both parties is dead set on bringing in millions of immigrants legally or illegally?”

I’ve posted the same thing for years. Did people really think our “government class” (politicians, teachers, emergency personnel, etc.) were going to simply downsize to match our shrinking population?

Also, I’ve maintained for years that the 2050 projection for this to no longer be a white-majority nation is an absolute hoax (probably to prevent reaction or panic). I still believe 2020 is a more reliable projection.

“All part of the Obama Plan.”

While he is a willing collaborator in this, it started long before him. Remember Bush II’s meeting with Vicente Fox, where the Mexican president highlighted the danger to the stability of Mexico if it was filled with unemployed young men? Bush II was happy to oblige in keeping the border open. In my area (northeastern NJ) illegals have been here under a de facto amnesty for decades; it switched from Irish & Scottish illegals to Hispanic and Asian ones.

A bit of self-fulfilling prophecy there; how else would it be turned around?

I’m glad I’m past the age in which my wife and I would have to decide whether to have kids and bring them up in a dying country. I fear for my 4-year-old granddaughter.

The more appropriate question is.. Who else is going to pull the welfare wagon? Working Americans will be the slave labor to the unproductive.

“Who else is going to pull the welfare wagon? Working Americans will be the slave labor to the unproductive.”

We already are (for the permanent underclass); as we lose our jobs and watch our (taxable) salaries fall, these costs will have to be passed on to companies. That should chase what is left of them overseas...

It goes to show you just how irrationally power hungry they are. There is no sense of progeny, no legitimate heirs of traditional American freedom, no tradition - nothing. Just raw power-of-now.

To them, there is no America after they die. A religious person would conclude that if they don't even conceive of a better country after they die, then they probably don't even actually believe in God.

They are willing to throw away the one last chance for a sane planet in lieu of a bunch and third/fourth/fifth world immigrants who will vote to keep them in office during their lifetimes. After that what do they care if the US becomes another Zimbabwe, Venezuela or Guatemala?

U.S. citizens don’t need to create kids anymore, look at all the ones odumbo is bringing here as ready made democrats.

When these currently illegal but future “American” kids grow up and realize what a great place this county is (or was before they got here) and they get all that free stuff (until it runs out), they will support their “king” forever.

“The Hispanic total fertility rate dropped from 2.84 in 2007 to 2.12 in 2012, he said.”

Ignore the rest of the article, this is the BIG PROBLEM for Democrats. This is a HUGE PROBLEM for them. They understand it...but Republicans are TOO DUMB to figure out what’s going on.

Basically, the natural growth of Hispanics has come to a stop, and there simply are not enough of them to replace the FDR Democrats that are, finally, dying off in big numbers. The other problem with American Hispanics (as opposed to Illegals) is that they tend to open-minded regarding who they vote for, particularly once they learn English and integrate into American culture.

The Dems know this, which is why they DESPERATELY NEED the 30 Million or so new ILLEGALS to become legalized, and then hopefully vote sooner than later. But they manage to trick the IDIOT REPUBLICANS into thinking that Amnesty will work for them, instead.

With two “parents” working to pay taxes to support all the illegals AND half of south/central America??

Not to mention the 47% of US.

Americans can’t afford to have their own babies because theferal government is taxing us to death to make us pay to support and educate the illegal alien babies from around the world.
