There are few points that are more angering to me than to hear a person who has no clue start spouting and then remove all doubts about the questions of his logic and rationality.
Near the top of the list are those who strategize about the impact of continuing demographic changes in America.
Before I go on I ask that you develop awareness of the two perspectives that are present as we make such a consideration but then make note of the perspective that they key upon.
The two perspectives are:
- What will the changing demographics in this nation mean to the Republican Party?
- What will the changing demographics in this nation mean to the Black Community?
As you listen to Black Democratic loyalists detail the Democratic Party romp in this nation due to:
- A constant growth in the Hispanic population
- The loss of the "White Majority"
- More liberalized culture (ie: smaller church crowd, fall of cultural norms)
They inevitably spout a message "Hey Republicans you had better CHANGE and become more attractive to more Blacks and Hispanics or YOU are going to go extinct".
Note again that they set up the "if-then" upon the Republican Party. Their assumptions are that "IF the Democrats are in power THEN the Black community thrives".
WHERE THE PROGRESSIVES ALREADY DOMINATE
When I read such analysis as above I am stunned at the person's incapacity to make note of the present and make inferences based upon that. Today there are a number of places where Black people live and there is a "one party town". Having all Democrats in power has not:
- Brought universally quality education to Black majority school systems
- Allowed us to reset safely and securely in our homes knowing that the "Klan threat" has been abated
- Saw the new establishment partnership between government and the business community bring abundant employment that normalizes the unemployment rate
At this point in time "the Chase" that you have been on against your ideological and racial adversary will come face to face with the "Pacific Ocean". There will be no more expansion. Instead you will be forced to double back and start to GOVERN the institutions that you now have control over and MANAGE the human resources that are demanding a better living standard.
In summary their belief is that merely by attrition and the ascension of favorable politicians to their present biases will we be shown "the Promised Land" once this new political and ideological order comes about in this nation.
The Strong Headwinds Before Us That Will Destroy The Dream
The year 2042 will be an important year. Two things are predicted to happen in this year.
- The Social Security Trust Fund Will Be Insolvent, Requiring Present Government Money To Meet The Payouts
- The White Population will no longer be a clear majority as Blacks and Hispanic populations number more when combined together
If our national debt is expected to reach $21,000 billion by 2021 I can only imagine what it will be in the year 2042. The federal government will be less able to deliver upon their promised national entitlements then than ever before. To the progressive who has his ideology based on "resource distribution" improvements rather than increased productivity at the periphery - a harsh reality awaits you in the future.
Imagine the provincial fight for resources that will take place. Some believe that the Hispanic/Black alliance will remain intact as a run against the "White establishment". The key flaw in this strategy is that it purports (again) that resource reallocation, rather than organic productivity, is going to make the difference as the new found population and political growth is had.
It also assumes that those who have resources will stay put and be allowed to get picked apart. In all likelihood the same "flight" that was seen locally and at the state or regional level will be done at the international level. One can take over a factory or a corporate high rise. The question is can they reproduce the product that was of envy?
I have sat through countless number of dinner banquets in which the speakers told of the need for an "educated workforce" in the future to address the mass retirement of the baby-boomers. Clearly we are going to need more skilled practitioners to take the place of those who are in these seats today.
Unfortunately as we look at the "land that has already been conquered the matrix of the schools, community culture are failing to produce sufficient quantities of the needed outputs required to maintain our national productivity and standard of living.
So frequently these speakers tell of the need for the PRESENT establishment to put aside any BIGOTRY that they have as it relates to the face of this new work force and instead "do it for America".
The unspoken demand that must compliment this request from the establishment is for the "Permanent Opposition" to start adopting more rationale pathways forward and thus align their actions promoting "change" in with the need for young minds to become disciplined toward a set of "directed outcomes" rather than PROTESTING for the sake of being contrarian against the system.
If the establishment is asked to be more tolerant and accommodating - what is being asked of the "Permanent Opposition"?
When is it made to prove that a society can actually sustain itself off of its social, cultural and economic policies?
