After the bad news on gay marriage out of the Supreme Court this week, here’s some good news for conservatives: Demographics are on our side!
As M. Stanton Evans has recently pointed out, “Believers in religious doctrine, the traditional family and pro-life attitudes on abortion are systematically outperforming their secular-liberal opponents in the demographic sweepstakes — having appreciably more children per couple — resulting in a fertility gap that works against the liberals.”
Republican states, such as Utah and Kentucky, have been steadily gaining population, while liberal states, such as New York and Vermont, are consistent demographic losers. It should not come as a surprise, though it always does, that people opposed to abortion are out-populating those who consider abortion a right.
Jewish publications have repeatedly observed that the declining fertility rate among all American Jews except the Orthodox — the group that votes 86 percent Republican — means that, in another generation or two, Jews could be majority Republican. (What a wonderful world it would be if Marco Rubio had half of Chuck Schumer’s IQ!)
But liberals always have a workaround. For decades, their solution to the left’s demographic collapse has been immigration. Idiot Republicans being buffaloed into supporting Rubio’s amnesty bill are not merely throwing Democrats a lifeline — they’re allowing Democrats to flip an imminent conservative victory into a permanent liberal majority.
With native-born liberals unwilling to reproduce themselves, liberals need a constant influx of new Democratic voters from other countries — and there happen to be 11 million of them living here right now! Contrary to Rubio-Republicans who think “they all look alike,” the vast majority of Hispanics are not “social conservatives.” (That’s blacks, Marco.)
In addition to being the one ethnic group most opposed to capitalism — even more than Occupy Wall Street protesters! — polls show that Hispanics are more pro-abortion than other Americans (66 percent of Hispanics versus 50 percent of other voters) and favor gay marriage more than other Americans (59 percent compared to 48 percent of all voters). They also support big government by an astronomical 75 percent and Obamacare, in particular, by 62 percent. (Polls: Pew, ABC, ABC, Pew, Fox)
Of course the Democrats want these illegals voting!
It is of no concern to the Democratic Party that illegal aliens are lawbreakers and overwhelmingly minimum-wage workers. Liberals don’t care about the working class having millions more low-skilled workers competing with them, and they certainly don’t care about the country. They just want to win elections. (If only it would occur to Republicans that they need to win elections, too.)
Next, Democrats will be demanding that we set up polling booths in the prisons and sending Marco Rubio out to argue that we already have “de facto” prison-voting.
