Our nation faces a monumental demographic problem – not enough people.
Our birthrate, long below growth rate, is approaching non sustainability. Europe is already in the tank. The US is not far behind.
Estimates proclaim nearly 20 million undocumented residents – who we’ve steadily marginalized as being illegals. The pathways to citizenship are ridiculously long, cumbersome and nearly impossible. It takes years, thousands of dollars and countless fears of deportation to gain citizenship. This Balkanization has steadily pushed many hard working, responsible and tax paying residents away from blending into US culture.
For the past decades there have been well over 500,000 abortions, each year.
Economies without a growing population cannot expand.
The US now has more job openings than people on unemployment.
Trucking alone has tens of thousands of unfilled driver jobs. Drive the highways and see every company with adverts on their trailers seeking drivers.
Everywhere there are signs outside businesses advertising, “Help Wanted” or “Now Hiring.”
Talk to any owner of an HVAC, electrical or plumbing company and ask about their unmet demand for lack of technicians.
In our rapidly expanding economy, the ability to find, recruit and employ new workers is only the tip of the iceberg. Lazy people who don’t want to work is NOT the issue.
If we don’t radically address the citizenship problem soon we’ll see inflation and then economic stagnation. If we don’t adjust the culture and climate to encourage, support and sustain a higher birthrate we will fail as an economy, culture and perhaps nation.
