Freedom and liberty in America are dying rapidly. The American dream will be dead within a decade.

How is this possible? The left is using big government to strangle America and real Americans.  They are doing their best to use big government to destroy the middle class. And unfortunately, for the most part, the Republican Party is sitting there, just drooling while all of this happens.

From the Daily Caller:

In its final months, the Obama administration has set up a strategy to bring inner city living to the suburbs by deploying three federal agencies to dictate to states and local communities how to set up schools, housing and mass transit.

 

It’s all part of a federal push to reduce economic and racial segregation in favor of diversity.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) expanded the reach of its Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule to two other federal agencies: the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education.

AFFH is a rule established by HUD last year that requires any nationwide locality that receives block grant funding from the agency to rezone neighborhoods based on income and racial prerequisites. It’s based on the 40-year-old Fair Housing Act.

In a joint letter released at the beginning of the week, the secretaries of the three agencies called on local leaders to use the AFFH rule as a vehicle to push state and local officials to abide by federal recommendations in planning to to develop residential, commercial and school sites.

“We recognize that a growing body of research supports the benefits of socioeconomic and racial diversity in schools and communities, and that such diversity can help establish access points for opportunity and mobility,” HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Education Secretary John King and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx wrote. “We also recognize that children raised in concentrated poverty or in communities segregated by
socioeconomic status or race or ethnicity have significantly lower social and economic mobility than those growing up in integrated communities.

“Rising economic segregation means that an increasing number of low-income households are located in distressed neighborhoods where they face challenges such as failing schools, high rates of crime, and inadequate access to services and jobs, making it harder for individuals and families to escape poverty,” the trio wrote.
Translation, the Obama Regime wants to destroy the middle class by importing crime into nice neighborhoods.  Most Americans’ single largest investment is their house. Most Americans aspire to home ownership.  And one of the key factors for the value of homes is nice, safe neighborhoods.

Yet what happens when we have these nice middle class neighborhoods that are suddenly forced to have public housing right in their midst?  There is a reason why people don’t voluntarily live in the ghettos.

This is a full fledged assault on the sovereignty of individual states as well as an attempt to simply destroy the middle class.  The state legislatures in red states should start rejecting all federal funds that come with these conditions.  Let the blue states go to hell.

Oh, and let’s not forget that a few conservatives tried to kill AFFH and the GOP establishment blocked them from killing this insanity.

    “The American dream will be dead within a decade.” If this it true, IMHO, the American people will get the government they elected. If you give the keys to you house to a burglar, the house will be burglarized. It seems the American people are devoid of common sense.

    OK, now that I have commented…..this new site has problems big time. Getting around is convoluted and not user friendly. Here is another error message I got just now from Norton…AN INTRUSION ATTEMPT BY VIRUS ZAG888.PW BLOCKED. I’ not coming back until I get a email about fixes.

    I see this entire struggle as mostly about respect. Women and minorities seem to imagine two things very consistently:
    1. They’re not getting respected / especially by people who appear to be more self confident, self reliant, and generally successful (often white men).
    2. They honestly think white men ARE being highly respected, when in fact, in my opinion, increased respect is an illusion that comes with being more self confident, self reliant, and generally successful.
    OK, so if all that is true, then WHY is it white men are (presumably in fact) more self confident, self reliant, and generally successful? It is probably because we all bought into the concepts around the American Dream. If you motivate little rambunctious kids by telling them “hey, you WANT this? Then you’ve got to WORK for it!” …. they get trained to connect those dots / work for what you want.
    However, if you motivate little rambunctious women and minorities by saying, hey, you WANT this? Then come on over here and I’ll GIVE it to you” ……or maybe even “hey, you WANT this? Forget about it, we ain’t got no money for you….” then you’ll surely discourage the American Dream just as easily, just as quickly and just as continuously. I don’t know about other people, but I had to clean up for hours before I ever saw my “allowance” (never more than about fifty cents in my entire memory) coming my way!
