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.
