I would like to give you, dear reader, some revealing statistics which bear directly upon the future of the United States of America.
Illegitimacy Rates in the U.S.A. for the year 2014:
All races: 40.2%
Asian/P. Islander: 16.4%
1,604,870 illegitimate children were born in the U.S.A. in the year 2014. Let that sink in.
(The above numbers are from the “National Vital Statistics Reports, Vol. 64, No. 12, December 23, 2015”)
Now let me give you some historical numbers on illegitimacy rates in the U.S.A. from the Department of Labor:
The contrast is pretty startling isn’t it?
More recently, in 1980, the illegitimacy rate in the U.S.A. was 18.4%. It continued increasing to 41% in 2009, and has decreased slightly each year thereafter. Now it is only 40.2%, as noted above.
Let’s look at this from another viewpoint.
In 1980 there were 29.4 illegitimate births per 1000 women in the U.S.A. In 2014, this number was 43.9. That is an almost 50% increase.
If these numbers do not send a chill up your back, then you must be comatose or a libertarian.
Over the last 36 years alone, this country has churned out something like 40 million babies without fathers at home. Can a country long last which has as one of its biggest product bastards? And here’s a thought which might make one despair. What would these numbers be if abortion had not been legal? Talk about a lose/lose situation.
All other problems facing this country are picayune when compared to this one. The costs, and here I do not mean only monetary, are simply too great to bear over an extended period of time without debasing the whole society.
Will either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton try to address this fundamental problem in America? I think not. More importantly, will Americans as a whole do anything to address this shame? Given the statistics, I believe the answer to that question was given long ago. It is a resounding “No!”
With all the attendant problems which arise out of illegitimacy, can anyone deny that the above numbers are evidence of a tremendous ethical, moral and educational scandal? To my mind, this has been and continues to be the biggest threat facing America. Since it does not appear that we have the will to call it what it is, much less do anything to correct the problem, I think the end of that late great place called the United States of America cannot be far off. It was good while it lasted. Bye, bye.
