What change will this looming reality bring to America?

Whereas the reality of which I speak is "negative real birth rates" in the United States. Statistically 2.11 births per woman are required just to sustain a population, and more than that are required for the population to grow. That means the women who actually can bare children during their lifetimes must average a figure safely higher than 2.11. But look at this NPR chart and you will see that US birth rates are at and then below 2 per woman in the not too distant future.

I contend that a socialistic society is in all truth and honesty a parasitic society, and that in a parasitic society the parasites must always have hosts to feed upon. What happens when the parasites (government workers, welfare recipients , Medicare recipients, retirees reliant upon Social Security, food stamp recipients, etc... are deprived of their hosts (which in this case are the next generation)?

With Agenda 21 rearing it's ugly head in a town near you, population control won't be a problem at all. Your all expendable. :|

So...ALL government workers are parasites? How so? Should we privatize border security and let Blackwater USA provide border security? Your premise on government workers is incorrigible! I take exception to your position of "lumping" so many into a category that is very broad in general and basically without merit!

It's not at all my plan (I have 3 children), it is merely the way of things, both presently and going forward.

A further contention of mine is that if we were freed of all parasites we would have the economic surplus with which to return to one worker families and have more children. We would also have the wherewithal to be more charitable.

A look at the Old Testament brings us to a time when Israel only had Judges (necessary to arbitrate disputes), but their neighbors all had Kings. Israel begged God for a King (despite Gods plan and superior knowledge) but he eventually gave Israel what they wanted, and they suffered for it dearly ever after. Is it really God's plan that we have nation states ruled over by strongly centralized authority governments?

And God also said:

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6 ¶ Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Which full time government workers would you say are not parasites?

parasite: a person who receives support, advantage, or the like, from another or others without giving any useful or proper return, as one who lives on the hospitality of others.

According to this definition you imply that government workers do not give any proper return for their pay...I am a govt worker and you have "lumped" me into your presumptuous statement, which I find very disturbing! WHO ARE YOU TO "JUDGE" any govt. worker! You are not GOD almighty!

I would also exempt those on S.S. and Medicare as well...if one works and pay into it...they are not parasites!
