“The Virginia governor’s race ignited Monday over Republican Robert F. McDonnell’s 20-year-old graduate thesis: Democrats assailed him in e-mail blasts and interviews for what he wrote about working women, homosexuals and “fornicators,” and McDonnell tried to explain his views to crucial moderate and female voter”

Page 11 of the pdf cite stats on increase of illegitimate births.

“A closely relatd symptom of familial breakdown is the tremendous rise in teen-age pregnancy and illegitimacy.  From 1970 to 1985, there was an increase of nearly 400% to 2.8 million in the number of children being reared by a mother who had never been married. (cites Footnote 14)”

“In fact, of the mothers receiving AFDC benefits in 1986, 46% had never been married, and 36% were separated or divorced (cites Footnote 15).”

Its like this throughout the document.  Its full of facts and data.  The Post and Dems object to the failure of their programs being pointed out.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aid_to_Families_with_Dependent_Children

Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) was a federal assistance program in effect from 1935 to 1997,[1]

In 1996, President Bill Clinton negotiated with the Republican-controlled Congress to pass the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act which drastically remade the program. Among other changes, a lifetime limit of five years was imposed for the receipt of benefits, and the newly-limited nature of the replacement program was reinforced by calling AFDC’s successor Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Many Americans continue to refer to TANF as “welfare” or AFDC.

In light of the results, by 2006 the welfare reforms appear to be less controversial. The New Republic suggested, “A broad consensus now holds that welfare reform was certainly not a disaster–and that it may, in fact, have worked much as its designers had hoped.”[4]

In the 1990’s, Bill Clinton helped abolished welfare as we know it.  This is because of what McDonnell and those he cited wrote.  It was conservatives like McDonnell pointing out the truth about the failure of Democratic nostrums that led to the change in the law.

Democrats destroyed the family, schools and communities by policy based on false assumptions about human behavior.  The facts have shown the Democrat Left were wrong.  Health care reform is the same fallacy filled willful ignorance of facts.

McDonnell’s thesis is a powerful well research fact based article.  He proves the Democrats destroyed the family with their welfare and anti-family and anti-traditional ideas.

Children are not being raised in the safe environments of the 1950’s because of what Democrats did.  That was a crime against humanity.  Congress partly abolished one of those programs in the 1990’s.  The rest need to go.  McDonnell is a hard working scholar and thinker.

He is the type we need to undo the damage Democrats did.  That is why the Post is angry.  They advocated the harm that has befallen us.  That is why they lose readers.  When people start reading the thesis, they will realize that McDonnell is a careful researcher of facts who recognizes failed policies and is part of the solution.

The Post can’t wake up to the fact that its policies caused the problems we have now.  They made our country worse to live in.  Anything showing that helps Republicans.  McDonnell’s thesis is part of what let to ending welfare for life signed by Bill Clinton. He is a hero.

Boy, you conservatives can’t help yourselves, can you? Fabricating “facts” and history comes naturally to you now.

God reads what you write, you know.

Bob McDonnell helped change the law on AFDC. Obviously, others did more.  But his thesis was part of that movement to change bad law.

Our culture issues are nonsense, were all dieing off and being replaced by immigrants with completly different histories and philosophies, they think were all nuts, left and right.
So go to the grave argueing about your right to abort unwanted children. The people who replace you will write thesis about your cultural suicide.

Great video. Support NumbersUSA and Fairus as it suggests at end. Republicans need to start focusing on the real issues of immigration destroying our solvency as a nation.

Until Republicans advocate stopping legal immigration they will be subject to attack by Democrats, because neither party is telling the truth about what is causing our problems.

Virginia’s problem is immigrants who are burdening our schools, roads, and prisons. California was bankrupted by them. The banks were by their mortgage defaults. We simply argue about anything instead of the truth. We need to stop immigration completely including student visas. We need to end affirmative action, hate speech laws, and all the uncivil rights laws. Only then can we make a true beginning to solve our real problem.

There are many responses to this subsequently.

Which is definitely not racism right OldAtlantic, racism went out a long time ago, back in 1989 when that “young” fella Bob McDonnell was writing that thesis about how to be an American Taliban.

EXACTLY – just because Obama stopped attending Trinity does not mean he stopped being a racist.

The thesis never mentions race, just welfare and illegitimacy.  Libs connect that to racism automatically.  Why is that?

Quotes from WaPo:

“From 1947 through 1973, American productivity rose by a whopping 104 percent, and median family income rose by the very same 104 percent.”

“Since 1973 productivity gains have outpaced median family income by 3 to 1.”

“In ways more difficult to quantify, the mass prosperity fostered a generosity of spirit: The civil rights revolution and the Marshall Plan both emanated from an America in which most people were imbued with a sense of economic security.”

McDonnell is right that women are worse off today from Democrat labor policies of high immigration to keep down wages.

Men’s median wages are the same as 1973, women’s are what men’s were in 1963. Men and women’s median wages graph page 19:

Productivity per hour doubled over the period 1973 to 2007 roughly.

If wages had doubled, men would earn a single family wage as Democrats called it 50 years ago.  Women are better off not from low wages, but from high wages even if they don’t work.  A woman’s bargaining power is the wage she could earn.  A woman at home who could earn double if she had to work has double the bargaining power of a woman working at half the wage.

Democrats and Republicans took away the opportunity of women to stay at home when kids are young and then get jobs when kids are grown that earn double.  If you look at graph of women’s wage linked to above you see it stopped going up as much around 1990 when Bush Sr and Kennedy brought in high immigration.

The Dems talk of macaca moment. They just paraded their Chappaquiddick moment before the country for an entire week. They celebrated it.

They inflicted it on America in immigration and welfare and uncivil rights laws, the latest the hate crime-speech-thought law. Any party that passes a law on speech and thought is not American. Their hypocrisy is so blatant because their hate is so great.

The basic liberal view is that non apologetic whites have no place in America.  Moreover, by immigration they mean to remove them including anyone else around at the time.

For liberals, who the people are doesn’t matter.  For scientists, aka immigration restrictions, aka as realists, it does matter.
The one exception libs make is whites who think it matters and think whites are better
or behave better however better is defined.  Libs want them replaced by non-whites.  This is supposed to happen iteratively which results in whites being removed completely with no trace left, in genes or culture including liberalism’s idea that the people don’t matter.
==
The Republicans can’t respond to an attack from the Left, because they are liberals.
They can’t say, McDonnell said AFDC was wrong and he helped get rid of it and package it well.  This is because they don’t really think of themselves as for us.  They really think of themselves as using liberal arguments to trick us to steal from us.  They want immigration to keep our wages down and get rid of us to be replaced by the more pliable or at least divide and rule.
Since Republicans are not for our true welfare, they can’t really respond to a liberal attack whose basic premise is that whites don’t have a right to keep their own country and to survive as a race or people.  The libs know that, so they make every attack just that.  Republicans then hope to get white votes from this without ever actually helping whites, e.g. ending affirmative action when they had the presidency and Congress.
Bush’s farewell address was loaded with blacks as part of it.  It was black first.  This was against whites, whom Bush hated for voting against Bush Sr in 1992 by voting for Perot.  Bush had a vendetta against Buchanan Perot voters.  So do the Republicans.  Whites who see through their lies and their evil intent they hate, if they speak up or vote for a third party.
