Without Immigration, the Democratic Party is Just a Generation or Two from Extinction
Democrat Party's own policies have put themselves in the position to sacrifice the wellbeing of our country for the survival of their party. Consider the following Democrat platforms:
- Abortion: Already prevalent, Democrats are now pushing abortion rights up to and beyond the point of delivery. As such, women are, at a minimum, having fewer children, if none at all. It’s logical to assume that the majority of abortions are with women who vote (or will vote) for Democrat candidates. Democrats obviously embrace these votes; however, this is a hardly a way to grow a voter base.
- LGBT Rights: By definition, this group does not procreate. Sure, they can adopt or pay for surrogates; but the blood line of LGBT couples ends with the current generation. This, too, is not a multigenerational voting bloc.
- Green Dogmas: Any green policy with teeth must addresses overpopulation. To environmentalists, one of the simplest ways to reduce environmental impact is to limit reproduction. While there are no current legal limitations to the number of children brought into the world, the green moral code is leading many green-conscious couples to having fewer children.
- Higher Education: The aforementioned democratic social issues are driven and reinforced throughout our colleges and universities by a dominantly liberal teaching staff. Students are programmed to believe that the traditions and values of their parents are senseless, and that they, the students, are wiser than their parents and ancestors. (Remember when the Obama administration released a guide on talking to your parents at the Thanksgiving Day table?) This is intentional – it is to create a disconnect between generations. Democrats want to make a college education free for everyone, go figure.
Because of these Democrat platforms, there are simply not enough democrats to sustain the party across multiple generations. Democrats must bring in new voters, and they are doing that through illegal immigration.
Here, Democrats are playing the long-game by pulling for laxed voting requirements that will expedite getting these immigrants and their descendants on voter rolls. And despite the fact that most of these immigrants’ traditional values are not in line socially with Democrat platforms, Democrats are able to attract these voters by promising everything that America is not: entitlement.
Don’t forget it’s about Texas and Arizona. Texas and Arizona have long been Red state strongholds. In recent years, Arizona has turned purple. Democrats are aiming to make it solid blue largely through immigration-based voter growth. In Texas, the stakes are high. If Democrats can turn Texas to blue, it’s game over for Presidential elections.
It is clear Democrat leadership is satisfied with what is happening at our southern border, and let’s not forget why.
Do Progressives See the Irony in Their Beliefs?
In order to truly understand one's position, you must understand the underlying motivations.
Progressive positions are becoming more popular than ever thanks to a slight-of-hand twisting of words, emotions, and guilt.
I have basic questions I cannot get a progressive to answer. Oddly enough, the fact that they see the irony in the questions yet cannot answer them fails to spark any inward reflection. This leads me to believe that progressiveness is rooted in deep, self-aggrandizing motives.
We need to recognize these factors and call them out.View Article
I Wonder What Would Happen if Laws had an Expiration Date
I'm all for government having to live by the same rules as people and companies must follow. The government loves to regulate, but it doesn't have to regulate itself.
One form of regulation is through expiration dates. Government regulate companies to place expiration dates on its products. They require our driver's licenses to expire.
Expiration guidelines (hopefully) are designed to protect the public. So why can't laws have expiration dates to protect us?
Changing Your Workplace Behaviors to Accommodate Generational Gaps is Not Doing Millennials a Favor
A few years ago, I attended a workshop where Millennial-generation expert Jason Dorsey spoke about Millennials in the workplace. Jason is considered a leader in multi-generation research with an emphasis on Millennial and Gen-Z generations. If you have never heard Jason speak, you should really get yourself invited to one his speaking engagements.
According to Jason, there are approximately 83 million Millennials in the US. They are the largest generation of employees and consumers.
I walked away from the presentation both informed and entertained. Included in my newly found knowledge included the following:
- Millennials do not consider themselves adults until they reach the age of 30.
- Millennials consider 9 months at a job long-term.
- Millennials are heavy users of tech support despite growing up with technology (they are heavy users of technology, but not necessarily technical).
Obviously, these are generalities; and of course, there are many exceptions to the above. Generalness aside, I found Jason’s expertise to be very helpful in understanding a Millennial’s perspective on the world, which is vastly different my Gen-X experience.
Since attending the workshop, I deliberately changed my approach with my Millennial co-workers. I experienced improvement in my personal relationships with them – to say nothing about restoring some mental sanity. Then something happened that made me realize that may not be the best approach: one of my Millennial co-workers was asked to handle a situation with a Baby-Boomer outside our organization.
At the time, this particular individual worked for me for me for around 6 months. I changed my normal leadership approach to accommodate his Millennial tendencies - provided contant praises and affirmations, ignored his horrendous grammar, and rose above his lack of communication tact. As silly as those things may seem to a Gen X or Baby Boomer, it actually provided for a better working experienc with him.
Unfortunately, our business associate didn't the get memo that he needed to treat our Millennial, well, like a Millennial. The conversations started out like any normal business discussion; but at the first sign of conflict, our Millennial quickly showed he couldn't handle it. At first, he couldn't believe that the business associate didn't agree with him. (Disagree with a Millennial and see what happens.) He failed to see that there could be another perspective. He doubled-down and started becoming emotional. Our business-savy associate quickly pounced leaving our Millennial speechless, but not without something to say going down. Needless to say, that converation was over, and our organization was left with a demeritorious blow to our reputation.
Certianly, not all Millennials are like mine was that day. Because the Millennial generation is largely homogeneous, any Millennial who shows even a twinkling of a exceptionalism and ambition can become very successful among the crowd of Millennial mediocrity. I don't blame Millennials for who they are. The blame fully rests on their parents and our society for proliferating these behaviors:
Why a Bernie Sanders Supporter Non-vote in November is More Powerful Than a Vote for Hillary Clinton
This is an old post, but I have it here because I feel it is still relevant.
By no means is this an endorsement of Bernie Sanders in 2016 - and certainly not in 2020 nor 2024 or whenever that guy finally decides to quit politics!
My point is that the DNC process of nominating a presidential candidate is rigged. Even though I do not associate myself with DNC policies, it is alarming, nonetheless, that this corruption exists in the highest level of a major political party in America.
Voters had a huge opportunity to stick it to the the corrupt members of the DNC. Ironically, it was Donald Trump who stuck it to the DNC. They now have a modified, but still ripe-for-corruption nominating process.
