Shock: 80% of U.S. population growth is from immigrants, resources being sucked dry
The Washington Times ^ | 7/30/14 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 07/30/2014 4:25:30 PM PDT by westcoastwillieg

A group dedicated to saving the planet by cutting runaway population increases is raising a new and shocking issue in Washington’s bitter fight over immigration reform: Most of the nation’s population growth is from immigrants, and they are consuming resources dangerously fast.

According to Negative Population Growth Inc., 80 percent of the growth in U.S. population comes from immigration, legal, illegal and among American-born children of immigrants...

... "Our nation is already vastly overpopulated,” said Mann. “The evidence is all around us: Millions are out of work, schools and hospitals are overcrowded, our natural resources are dwindling, pollution is increasing, and our infrastructure and social services are crumbling under the strain. Yet U.S. population is still growing by an average of over 6,600 people per day, and nearly 2.5 million people per year. We simply cannot afford to continue our growth. It is unsustainable, and irresponsible policies are the driving force behind it."...

What's wrong with this picture? We have severe water shortages on the West Coast plus a crumbling infrastructure, power outages and the solution is to bring in more immigrants.

See Africa. Many places haven't built a building since colonialism.

You can only live off a warm but cooling body for so long.

Which is why conservatism and our America is DOA. There is no way to beat these demographics. Oh we’ll have a few victories here and there over the next decade but that’s it.

Choose ONE ONLY:

1. Out-of-control immigration

OR:

2. De-facto welfare state

YOU CANNOT HAVE BOTH

And just wait until that 80% starts demanding we “give back” Aztlan to Mexico. It will make Gaza seem tame by comparison.

Which is why it will be necessary to abandon conservatism and implement fascism to clean up this mess.

The goodie-goodie Christians had to always be "charitable" and couldn't make any tough choices.

Now the system will be destroyed and with their backs up against a wall, future generations will by necessity adopt brutal tactics to ensure their survival.

“80 percent of the growth in U.S. population comes from immigration, legal, illegal and among American-born children of immigrants...”

Utter and complete BS spewed out by the leftist media. The latest Pew poll shows that illegals have stopped reproducing.

Now, let’s get to the nub of the matter, which is the confluence of hand-wringers and surrender monkeys infesting FR. They run around FR insisting that we’re doomed and we need to surrender to the leftists. What does that tell us? It informs us that FR is infested with leftists, GOPe cowards and other assorted white flag waving worms.

As Jim Robinson has said: We have not begun to fight. Let’s rally, patriots.

Our water shortages on the West Coast are due to mismanagement of resources and protecting bait fish.

there is no reason why the San Juaqin Valley has been turned a veritable desert.

The crumbling infrastructure is due piss poor management of labor, the burdened costed of their present value and extortionist benefits packages.

Power outages? Uhmmm build a few nuke and coal powered plants, then tell the Sierra Club you’ve a good mind to club a few baby seals and make lamp oil out of whales if they don’t just sit down and STFU.

Whew! It’s on Wednesday and already I’ve solved a few problemos.....

It’s not that we’re allowing too many immigrants, but too many of the wrong type. There are plenty of intelligent, well educated people that would like to immigrate but we make it very difficult for them to come to this country legally.

No.

It IS that we are allowing too many immigrants.

The more people, the less freedom.

The more people the more rules and laws you need to keep everyone from stepping on each others toes.

The more laws you will need to have to "share" resources and to ration resources.

Wake up. Geez.

I believe we are going to require a period of lawlessness to correct decades of lawlessness. Some people will need to be expelled, notwithstanding their theft of a claimed right to be here.

Good post.

There are some people out there who think we won't be overpopulated so long as you can literally stack people like cordwood, and who see pollution control laws, the rising price of energy, and the growth of government as something the evil left does for fun, just to make our lives miserable.

And not because all those are designed mostly to counter the stresses of overpopulation.

Outside of India and China, no other country on earth is packed with as many people as is the U.S.A.

Worse, the population density of New Jersey exceeded that of China years ago--but some people will blame the loss of freedom and bloated government in New Jersey, on some kind of socialist plot.

You bet, just look at your big population centers...

People in those places are regulated and controlled far beyond what small rural populations are by a series of magnitudes..

Not necessarily true. People can be well behaved without a myriad of laws. It's more of a cultural issue.
