“Been Around the World and Found That Only Stupid People Are Breeding…”

Harvey Danger sang that back in the 90s, in the song “Flagpole Sitta,” and it’s as true now as it was then:

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Syracuse University professor Arthur C. Brooks presents his theory of why Conservatives keep winning elections:

Liberals don’t procreate enough.

“According to the 2004 General Social Survey, if you picked 100 unrelated politically liberal adults at random, you would find that they had, between them, 147 children. If you picked 100 conservatives, you would find 208 kids. That’s a ‘fertility gap’ of 41 percent. Given that about 80 percent of people with an identifiable party preference grow up to vote the same way as their parents, this gap translates into lots more little Republicans than little Democrats to vote in future elections. Over the past 30 years this gap has not been below 20 percent — explaining, to a large extent, the current ineffectiveness of liberal youth voter campaigns today.”

Scary. We’re being out-bred.

So come on, Progressives! Fuck for Freedom!
