Once one is past the idea of “Change,” what is driving Democrats in 2008? What is the future they demand?
For eight years we have been told that we must become “more like” Europeans with their welfare, healthcare and geopolitical views.
Since the 1980s American has outpaced European job creation by over 20:1. America has outpaced wealth creation by similar amounts.
Immigrants to America, legal and illegal, come to work, pay taxes and raise families.
Illegal immigrants to Europe come to blow it up and establish Sharia law.
Jobs are not being created in Europe; economies across the failed demi-Continent are stagnant or declining. Youths refuse to accept that the 21st Century workplace is not their parents’ workplace, that a job is not a national right, but rather is dependent on the market – and if your ideas don’t work, your company will fold and you’ll be looking for a new job.
In America being laid off generates the comment, “Well, I was looking for a job when I found this one.” In Europe just the idea generates riots.
One thing Europe has not been up to is making babies. Russia will be down over 50M people by mid-Century. Spain is halving its population each generation.
No European country is having enough babies to sustain itself now. Yet Democrats demand America become just like Europe with the same unsustainable work, health and welfare policies. Does it just not occur to Democrats that the smart people already came to America? That for centuries those wanting better lives have come to America? From all over the world?
Let’s see – that means that those not wanting to work hard for a better future would have stayed in… Europe?
No babies equals no future workers equals no future taxes equals no social welfare.
Universal Health Care? Even doctors in Sweden and Canada are voting to get out of it.
Just like Democrats: Wait until policies are proven failures – then implement them.
What happens when industrialized countries depopulate themselves and turn their geographies over to a drastically different culture of less-educated, more violent peoples?
No one knows; it’s never happened before. That it will be good seems counterintuitive.
What are Democrat’s policies? On population: No kids. (Really. Take a look at the Blue States: no kids.)
Remember this next time a Democrat says they are doing something “For the children.” Democrats don’t have children.
On work: Guaranteed jobs; On health care: Universal. Sound familiar?
This is what the Democrat Party sees as the future of America. Failing social safety nets, failed universal health care, an inability to create or sustain jobs, limitless immigration until a culture of liberty and freedom is replaced by a culture of violent theocracy because it is more convenient than resisting – or having your own kids.
What is being missed in the American Left is this: Europe is a failed continent. It is through.
They are clinging to floating deck chairs from the Titanic; Europe has sunk – past tense. It is over and done. There not only is no future there, there is nearly no there there — today.
This is a future America should look forward to? No jobs? No wealth creation? No safety nets? No kids?
Those preparing to vote for Democrats on the bet that things will get better need only to look at the shambles that once was Europe. We have problems in America – but we always have found our way through them.
Emulating failed states is not a way forward.
