The Fallacy of...
Moreover, while boomers were almost all born into families where mother and father were married and living together, Hispanics have a 53 percent illegitimacy rate, African-Americans a 73 percent rate.
Among the white poor and working class, the illegitimacy rate is now 40 percent — almost twice as high as it was in black America when Pat Moynihan wrote his 1965 report on the crisis of the black family.
And between the illegitimacy rate and the drug-use rate, dropout rate, crime rate and incarceration rate, the correlation is absolute.
Some of us are often accused of always “crying wolf.”
But it is worth noting that one day the wolf came.
That is Pat Buchanan. Here's the full piece.
Let's face facts, Patriots. President Obama won, and he did it because more people voted for him and his policies than for Romney. Yet 35% of Americans self-identify as "Conservative" and only 24% self-identify as "Liberal". It goes to show that regardless of the label you like to put on yourself, one man's "Conservative" is another man's "Traitor to the Constitution". As has been discussed on this blog for quite a while, just because a man likes to call himself a "Patriot", he may well just be another ass-hat.
Labels are meaningless. Actions matter. How you carry yourself matters. How you treat your fellow Man, matters.
Whatever you thought the odds for Liberty might have been yesterday, the election results tonight should cause you to re-examine your numbers and expectations. Many men call themselves "Patriots" and have no use for the Constitution, Founding Ideals, no intention of giving up their Government FSA checks, will call you an extremist and terrorist if you suggest Social Security is unconstitutional.
Not everyone who says he's on your team is really on your team.
I have no use for a "Big Tent" Liberty Movement that includes people who "...are all fighting for Liberty." Scratch the surface, as we have seen time and again, and you learn that your idea of "Liberty" is often quite different from that other guy's idea of "Liberty". Refusing to stand with such people is not "Dissension" - it is choosing sides.
Choose sides, Patriots.
Kenny offers his perspective, here.
But please have the courage to see the truth before you: President Obama is going to have four more years because a very large percentage of Americans chose him. He won against a guy who is very ideologically similar. Between the two politicians running for President tonight, about 150,000,000 of your fellow Americans voted for Monstrous Government that steals from the productive to give to non-productive (President Obama) and nearly Monstrous Government represented by Mitt Romney.
If you believe that it is morally repugnant for Government to take the possessions of one American to give to another American, you are in a very, very, very tiny minority. If you believe that no man or group of men has the Right to tell you how to live, to dictate even a moral code for you, then you are among an even smaller minority.
You'd better come to grips with this reality: The current government of the United States of America has legitimacy given to it by the governed. Period. They voted for this government and what this government does on their behalf.
Use this information as you will.
