A Democrat Majority Is A Sign Of America In Decline

960x595

Ross Douthat, writing in the New York Times (emphasis mine):

Liberals look at the Obama majority and see a coalition bound together by enlightened values – reason rather than superstition, tolerance rather than bigotry, equality rather than hierarchy. But it’s just as easy to see a coalition created by social disintegration and unified by economic fear.

Consider the Hispanic vote. Are Democrats winning Hispanics because they put forward a more welcoming face than Republicans do – one more in keeping with America’s tradition of assimilating migrants yearning to breathe free? Yes, up to a point. But they’re also winning recent immigrants because those immigrants often aren’t assimilating successfully – or worse, are assimilating downward, thanks to rising out-of-wedlock birthrates and high dropout rates. The Democratic edge among Hispanics depends heavily on these darker trends: the weaker that families and communities are, the more necessary government support inevitably seems.

Likewise with the growing number of unmarried Americans, especially unmarried women. Yes, social issues like abortion help explain why these voters lean Democratic. But the more important explanation is that single life is generally more insecure and chaotic than married life, and single life with children – which is now commonplace for women under 30 – is almost impossible to navigate without the support the welfare state provides.

Or consider the secular vote, which has been growing swiftly and tilts heavily toward Democrats. The liberal image of a non-churchgoing American is probably the “spiritual but not religious” seeker, or the bright young atheist reading Richard Dawkins. But the typical unchurched American is just as often an underemployed working-class man, whose secularism is less an intellectual choice than a symptom of his disconnection from community in general.

This rings true with me, though I will say that I don’t think these “dark” outcomes are what Democrats are promoting. At least not consciously. Rather, I think these trends are being exploited by Democrats for political gains.

A lot of people in America – enough people of voting age to keep President Obama in office for another term – have lost the sense that they can be self-sufficient. That they can survive, and prosper, without an endless parade of government programs.

And we’re not talking about basic infrastructure like roads and bridges and the like. We’re talking about people who believe that higher education wouldn’t happen if the government didn’t subsidize it. That the poor wouldn’t eat without food stamps. That somehow what they need in their lives wouldn’t be available in their lives if the government wasn’t there to regulate, subsidize, protect and mandate.

Which is astounding given the times of relative plenty we’re living in. Yes, we’re in the midst of an ugly and protected economic downturn, but we are still a nation where obesity is more of a societal problem than starvation. We are still a nation where “the poor” live in air conditioned comfort, watching their cable or satellite television or streaming Netflix to the iPads or laptops.

What’s more, the social safety nets liberalism promotes also promotes risky behavior. Young women are encouraged to be promiscuous because coverage for birth control and abortions will be mandated as a part of the insurance coverage they are now entitled to. College students are encouraged to run up huge amounts of student loan debt pursuing impractical degrees because the government is subsidizing and backing the loans. And if things in your career don’t work out? There’s something like 100 weeks of unemployment and a myriad of programs for food and shelter to fall back on.

Life is a risky place. The social policies of the left seem aimed at leeching out that risk, and yet what they’re achieving is policy which drags society toward a lowest common denominator. By creating more demand or need for government services the Democrats build themselves a constituency for their policies.

That it’s hurting America is, apparently, beside the point.

    Yes, a Democrat. read Liberal majority, is a sign of America in dramatic decline, but not for the reasons listed above. From our founding, albeit never officially, we were a Christian people/nation, with reliance upon Nature’s God for our power, prosperity and liberty. The Democrats in 1948 by virtue of Hugo Black, kicked Nature’s God out of the public square, in 1962 under Comrade Earl Warren, they issued their first major decision against Nature’s God under the lie of separation, immediately after we had civil rights riots in the streets, a drug revolution, a sexual revolution, Vietnam, several major assassinations in that decade, within a decade Roe v Wade and the start of our national fetal holocaust, no fault divorce and on and on the moral floor fell out and this nation fell into a pit of immorality and godlessness. Then, with a few burps along the way, our economy began to falter in a serious way and the welfare state exploded to provide cradle to grave care and relief from all personal responsibility.

    It all started in 1948 under Democrat Party rule and all the moral and social evils mentioned above since that time were promoted and advanced by the Democrats. The American National House is rotting from the inside, all made possible by the damnable lies of Separation of Church and State and tolerationism, both strangely enough backed by Democrats and their social/moral fellow travelers Libertarians.

    Absent a national repentance, which will never happen, the United States will not stop its decline short of an economic implosion and our becoming a Third World Nation.

            Yes and most of them, sadly the vast majority of them, are what Flamemeister calls, “practical atheists.” They think they are Christian because their family said they were Christian and this has always been mostly a Christian nation, but in word and deed they seem more like atheists.

            To be a true Christian, one must by sincere faith alone, in Christ alone accept God’s free salvation, wherein Jesus becomes our Savior and the absolute Lord of our lives, whether we often fail in that task or not. It is not religion with a list of things we must do to be saved or things not to do or to be lost, that is religion and most contemptible, it is a bondage on the soul that drives men mad. Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus as our dearest friend, our grand Champion, it is being in Him and He is us by His Spirit. It is being saved and then as long as we abide here, being daily in the school of Christ, learning from Him to be like Him, but never fearing for loss of Heaven when we fail.

    • Thresherman

      Sorry, although I am a Christian, I do not buy into the idea that only a religious revival will save the nation. Yes, it is disappointing that a stuttering incompetent endowed with a totally unjustified sense of entitlement was re-elected when the country needs strong and effective leadership more than ever. But on the other hand,it has been through worse and survived and I believe that it will survive this as well. Politically the country is in better shape than in 2008 when all 3 branches were under Democratic control.and in 2 years we have opportunity to to neuter Obama even further, so I say forget the doomsday scenarios and focus on 2014.

      • Neiman

        I did not say revival, although that too could change the heart of the people and grant them godly wisdom in all their affairs. Repentance was my word and it is needful before revival can take place and a people be healed.

        2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
        (KJV)

        Doesn’t that sound like God is saying a national repentance is required, albeit with clear actions by the people?

        Never before has this nation fallen into such gross immorality as the past 60+ years, we have murdered over 50 million innocent, helpless babies and others as well through active euthanasia. We have approved of wicked sexual lifestyles that God condemns, we have kicked Him out of the public square and whether you like it or not, He has turned His face from us, we have fallen into a economic pit and why we He help us now, absent repentance?.

  • Phil Gay

    America is in decline because the Republican party has been hijacked & no longer conservative, pro Constitution, pro capitalism, pro family, pro freedom. They act like it bit talk is cheap. Look at the Republican party last two candidates for President – very liberal. I wish Rob Port would wake up and tell the truth but (he gets paid to pour the kool-aid) Rob how do you sleep at night? How can you not fight for freedom-liberty for your children? Do you want your children to be enslaved by the corrupt government? Corruption can only happen with the Blessing of Both Parties!!!!!!

    • Neiman

      If you are going to charge Rob with being paid to push some message, absent objective, documented truth, it is dishonest. It would be much more honest if at least you put “IMO” somewhere or offer proofs; to make it an objective fact without documented proof, is an emotional response, not the truth.

      Rob is an admitted Libertarian, he fights so hard for these Libertarian values of personal liberty and states rights that, I and others have often passionately opposed him. He and I are no allies or friends at all, he has little, if any respect for me or my views, but I must say your charges against him are just not true, while he is IMO a moral/family values liberal, in every other way he is a conservative, leaning hard limited government, pro-capitalism, pro-liberty Libertarian.

      You have apparently missed the many times he has declared his Libertarian leanings and other than moral values, I do not believe he is pro-Republican, he is very, very conservative. Please argue with Rob, oppose his views, but I think if you are honest you would have to admit you have no objective, documented proof in support of your charges against him.

      • Phil Gay

        Rob spews the Republican talking points. Rob is No Libertarian as he follows the footprints of Romney-McCain-GW Bush. It’s funny how people think they are Conservative but in reality far from it. I have yet to read Rob’s feeling on the Constitution. Rob is more Globalist than Conservative.

        • Neiman

          I don’t think you know Rob at all.

          When there is an Obama type in the White House destroying the country and we only have a two party system, Rob is going to support the man that is at the head of the GOP ticket versus the Democrat; but, he has criticized them all, he always gave only highly conditional support to these men that you noted above.

          Rob is a very strict Constitutionalist IMO, he is just not a Ron Paul fanatic that is unable to reason on his own like the Paulites. He may not meet your particular definition of Libertarian, Conservative or Capitalist; but he is surely all those things.

          I am not a defender of Rob, we don’t really like each other personally, he has absolutely no respect for me or my views, so I have nothing to gain by defending him; but, having been here for years, I like to think I have some understanding of his views and character and you seem to have a wholly incorrect image of the man. Let me ask, how many people running a blog virtually never ban people, even when the reader is attacking them and go out of their way to allow readers to create their own blogs and state their own, often directly opposite views than his own on their blog? Well, Rob does just that because he believes in free speech, he does not censor others and rarely engages in defense of his opinions, allowing them to stand or fall on their own.

            Yup…
            What you said.

            Free speech being one of them…
            His lack of world view from a historicaly accurate Biblical understanding limits alot of his insights, IMO…

            I as well was blind before I could see…
            Rob is an honorable man who “easily” gets annoyed at me tho…
            hee..hee…

          • Neiman

            His atheism makes him blind, that is for sure; but he has Christian parents and a Christian wife and so I still have hope for him in that regard.

            As I said, I am not his defender, but I want fairness and some attempt at objective facts, versus ad hominem attacks.

      Romney should not have been nominated, let alone elected, but the lesser of two evils (Romney/Obama), still leaves an evil man in power to our ultimate destruction, because we told Nature’s God to get out of our affairs, so He did and we sowed the seeds and now are reaping the whirlwind.

            That’s a wonderful religion you’ve created for yourself. I particularly like the part where you grant yourself back stage passes without going through the proper post show screening.

          • Neiman

            You did not answer how you thought you would gain Heaven, while not being a Christian. That is a reasonable question deserving a rational, civil response with some documented proofs. Why do you never explain how you will gain Heaven without faith in Christ, I want to know, others here want to know, we want to know how you plan on escaping the torments of hell.

            Ephesians 2:6 “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,” This is past tense, once Born Again we become part of the Body of Christ in Spirit and according to His promise are already seated in Heavenly places in the beloved. Think me wrong, show me Scripture that proves me wrong.

            Romans 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,” Think me wrong, show me Scripture that proves me wrong.

            Let me tell you clearly, unless you repent of your sins, including your role in abortions and lying gays into hell, all your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord while in this life on earth, you will have no appeal, you will enter eternity lost and suffering without end. Think me wrong, show me Scripture that proves me wrong.

            I have shown you many times how God hates sin and those that lead others into sin and that is the only hate I have, being of the same Spirit.

    A challenge to you readers; A book entitled “Coming Apart” by Charles Murray published early 2012 has a great del of research and analysis of this change in American social culture and life styles.
    There is also a DVD of “Coming Apart” of 1 Hour plus that goes thru much of the book in a lecture by Murray to the AEI in February of 2012.
    The DVD can be accessed for free by logging into CSPAN and asking for “Coming Apart”. the Charles Murray lecture. It is worth the time and effort!
    Is American culture changing? You bet it is, and most of it “going down hill” as they say.

            After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.
            2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,
            3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

            4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

            5 of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;[a]
            of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed;

    The availability of birth control will lead young women to be promiscuious??? You actually had me agreeing with you right up until that moronic statement.

    • RCND

      They (loose women and easy men) led themselves to be promiscuous. They are responsible for their own bad choices. Access to easy birth control simply helps them avoid the consequences a little more (never mind the only 100% effective BC is abstinence). Normally I would not care, but since I gotta be part of the ones paying so they can get it for free, I do. If you want t be a s!u+ (male or female), do it on your own dime (or dollar, which I believe is close enough to the cost of a condom out of a machine).

I wonder how many times some of you were dropped as babies because your personal lack of understanding of this country is kind of like the Flat Earthers of the times before Columbus! As Bill Maher would say, dispatches from the bubble. So please get yourselves a new set of fact providers (real ones) and get real. i am the white 63 year old that vote for Obama. i worked since I was nine years old and I am solid upper middle class with a University of Minnesota degree, and 37years in business. Please get a copy of the constitution and realize the only ones who do not understand it are you. FDR saved this nation from a great depression. The war was the final tool that end the depression. You do not understand the safty nets in our country. There were lazy people long before there was social safty net. There were irresponsible people long before the social safty nets. There were abortions long before birth control. Birth control does not promote promiscuity, horny guys who don’t understnd the word “no” and women who don’t want to say no or are afraid too. Keep listening to the Rushes, Becks and Hannitys of the world as the laugh all the way to the bank. As PT Barnum, there is a sucker born everyday.

    The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile.

    1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a
    crystal clear stream.
    2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.
    3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air..
    4. No one knows your secret place.
    5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.
    6. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of
    serenity.
    7. The water is so clear that you can make out the face of the Democrat you
    are holding underwater.

    See it worked. You’re smiling

    • Neiman

      What unjust and illegal wars?

      As there were only 4804 American soldiers killed in Iraq in 10 years and 3230 in Afghanistan in the same time, how do you get to thousands every year? That is liberal math at its worst. In WW-II there were 405,399 and the Civil War 625,000. So, I think your argument about Republicans sending thousands of soldiers a year to their deaths is wholly false and compared to other wars, the loss of lives in Iraq and Afghanistan were quite low.

      Illegal or unjust wars: With the support of large bipartisan majorities, the US Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002. The resolution asserts the authorization by the Constitution of the United States and the United States Congress for the President to fight anti-United States terrorism. So, while you liberals will never accept it, no court has found US actions to be illegal or unjust, the latter being subjective anyway.

      Now let is look at over 50 million helpless, innocent babies murdered in or partly outside the womb because of Democrat Party support and legislation, it equals over 50 million since Roe v Wade, and totally undermines your argument. It is like Hitler pointing his finger at a man that killed a dozen people and saying see, he is worse than I am.

      • chris

        The war in Iraq was, by definition, unjust. We didn’t find the WMD to justify it. Any other “justification” would be a moot point, because the American people had supported it due to fear that Saddam was an actual and immediate threat.

    “What’s more, the social safety nets liberalism promotes also promotes risky behavior. Young women are encouraged to be promiscuous ” Pure and utter nonsense. I am surprised that your wife doesn’t beat you. Whether or not a woman will dance the two person tangle, to become “promiscuous” has little to do with gov’t mandated birth control and abortion in a national health care. 1. if they are using birth control there should be less abortion. 2. It takes two to tangle. You seem to leave the male component out of this . IF the female is promiscuous so is the male and he can wrap it just as easy or keep it in his pants. Yet you blame the woman. 3. Believe it or not Sex outside of marriage has been going on forever without gov’t provided contraceptives. ……..Conservatives wonder why they got beat, because of attitudes like yours.

    Then you go on bitching about the poor not being poor enough. Damn them for not living as if they were in Calcutta! Freaking hilarious Rob.

      Really, borby?

      You might want to review the impact birth control had on sexual mores during the 1960’s and 1970’s.

      I’m no prude or moralizer. I think consenting adults should get up to whatever hijinks they want. But let’s not pretend that our friends on the left aren’t promoting a certain sort of risky lifestyle that leads to more government dependence.

      • chris

        I think you have it backwards. People who use birth control and protection are less likely to have unexpected babies and contract STDs, and therefore they will be less dependent on the government. People who don’t use the above mentioned are more likely to need food stamps, assistance in expensive drug therapy, etc.

      • borborygmi

        The pill was the creation of free market capitalist investors. There was a demand for better birth control to prevent unwanted births. Drug companies obliged and are makeing a boat load of money because of this. Are you insinuating that women on birth control are promiscuous? I would think that birth control would be a priority for LIbertarians as it frees up the individual to have freedom of choice yet still enjoy the pleasure of sex.

        Why were there Homes for unwed Mothers? It wasn’t because the gov’t (we) were paying for contraceptives. Chris has it correct Rob , in your quest to damn anything gov’t you put the cart before the horse.

    • Neiman

      The idea is that once the risks of pregnancy are removed, whether through preventing pregnancy or killing the baby before it is delivered from the womb, the fear of unprotected sex goes away or is seriously minimized, thus an increase in the number of women freed from the consequences and their hearts seared from the immoral nature of their acts will more often engage in sex outside the marriage bed with less restraint.

      As to men, from a moral perspective they are as guilty as women of fornication outside the marriage bed; but, as they do not get pregnant the availability of birth control is not directly involved in their decisions.

      It so typical of liberals to lie, you could not resist saying that Rob or Conservatives want people to be poor or think they are not poor enough or condemn them for not living as we think they should as poor people. Show me where any leading conservative has directly asserted any of those things or be branded a liar.

      • borborygmi

        We are still a nation where “the poor” live in air conditioned comfort, watching their cable or satellite television or streaming Netflix to the iPads or laptops. There is your proof. Like I wrote” Damn you poor for not acting poor.” Apparently the cure for being poor is suffering enough so you decide not to be poor. Adults yep there are some leeches but the kids I guess if it doesn’t kill them it will just make them tougher.

        Typical Conservative,” Men” as they do not get pregnant the availability of birth control is not directly involved in their decisions…..The male has as much of a responsibility as the female. The view point that a man can’t get pregnant because they aren’t directly involved is archaic and anatomically incorrect. The reason the woman can get pregnant is the man. “Submit to me woman and if you get pregnant it is your fault , or God’s Will ” or some such nonsense. The reason for birth control is to control births. Man has been trying to prevent that since the first sheepskin condom was made. Women being able to take the pill finally had some control.

  • chris

    History would probably not agree with your assessment. Since the New Deal, America has become perhaps the strongest and most vibrant country in history. After the War on Poverty and the Civil Rights Act, we’ve become the world’s only superpower. Federal programs and projects have only improved America.

    The REAL downfall of America will be caused by the “civil war” between democrats and republicans, and this fall will probably start to really materialize by the beginning of next year when we go off the cliff.
