No doubt about it, the United States of America is no longer ruled by the majority, but by many minority groups. Those groups include Americans categorized by gender, religion, race, class, and more. For some strange reason, political correctness, perhaps some form of misplaced guilt, or other reasons, the majority have allowed their voice to be silenced by the minority who demand preference. As we debate US debt and raising the debt ceiling, none of these forced expenses are being considered.
One example of minority rule is the LGBT agenda.
Gay history will now be taught in California schools to children as young as kindergarten, as to how many other states will follow suit we will have to wait and find out. As I remember back to my own kindergarten days, I didn't know anything about sex except that little boys and little girls were different. Exactly how much tax money, money that California and other states don't have, will this cost the already burdened taxpayers? Why should the taxpayers, who are majority heterosexual, be forced to pay this expense for a very small minority of the population? Why should children, who are majority heterosexual, be forced to endure this indoctrination? Because the minority demand it.
Exactly how does the LGBT population America compare to the heterosexual population? Here are key findings from this study from April of 2011:
* An estimated 3.5% of adults in the United States identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual and an estimated 0.3% of adults are transgender.
* This implies that there are approximately 9 million LGBT Americans, a figure roughly equivalent to the population of New Jersey.
The federal government helped fund a study, the study was one of many linked to an $899,769 grant, that examined what effect a gay man's penis size has on his sex life and general well-being -- gay men with "below average penises" were more likely to assume a "bottom" sexual position, while those with "above average penises" were more likely to assume a "top" sexual position. Those with average penises identified themselves as "versatile" in the bedroom. (Fox)
The above study comes after another study which shows a link between gay male penis size and gay self-esteem. How in the world could the majority of Americans, who are straight, have lived without the results of this study? (sarcasm)
Why even have these studies? Because, we are told, the LGBT community is understudied, and needs to be studied in order to form public policy.
The belief by a minority of Americans in hoaxes like global warming costs taxpayers.
One example, the majority of Americans do not believe in man-made global warming nor do they believe in using tax dollars to support green projects. If a company cannot survive on its own in the market place, then it should not be supported by tax dollars. One example is a Salinas California car manufacturing company that was expected to build environmentally friendly electric cars and create new jobs folded before any cars could run off the assembly line. A $300,000 community development grant, $240,000 additional funds and more than half a million dollars in city funds, all gone, all spent, for vehicles the majority do not want and do not intend to purchase.
The Illegal alien minority costs taxpayers.
Non-Americans benefiting from the labors of legal Americans over the needs of legal Americans. With the current debate on raising the debt ceiling, the cost of illegal immigration is not even being debated.
American taxpayers spend $113 billion annually subsidizing illegal immigration and padding the pockets of businesses addicted to cheap labor. Taxpayers at the state and local levels bear the brunt, providing $84 billion in services annually while the federal government spends $29 billion. The latter figure is – incidentally -- almost exactly equal to the interest payment on the total federal debt this past April. Of course, the debt continues to grow uncontrollably because the government must borrow to keep up with, among other things, the growing cost of illegal immigration.
In some states, reducing the fiscal burden of illegal immigration would represent nothing short of an economic miracle:
- California’s budget deficit is $28 billion yet the state spends $21.8 billion subsidizing illegal immigration, or 75% of their total deficit.
- Massachusetts could almost clear their books by ending illegal alien subsidies; the state’s deficit is $2 billion while their annual cost of illegal immigration is $1.86 billion.
- Maryland and New York would enjoy much needed surpluses; those state’s expenditures on illegal immigration actually exceed their deficits! (Fox News)
In colleges and universities in many instances illegals get in-state tuition rates as well as scholarships, loans and grants which must be deprived from legal US young adults - the minority rules.
In 2010 it was reported that the cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year -- an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America but another report concluded each illegal alien cost American taxpayers $346 billion annually; they affect 15 different executive agencies of the U.S. government.
An effort is being made by the GOP to reach Hispanics where the economy is concerned.
The wrong kind of legal immigration costs American taxpayers.
Fewer than 6 percent of legal immigrants were admitted because they possessed skills deemed essential to the U.S. economy. Most are admitted because of family ties to earlier immigrants, many of whom are living in poverty or near poverty.
As a result, immigration bloats an already-existing surplus of low-skilled workers, increasing job competition and driving down wages for American workers.

Minority religions get preference over Christians and Jews in the US.
Minorities rule how the media reports.
Flash mobs across the United States cause damage to property and lives. In the media their race is conveniently left out of reportage. (They were Black by the way.) Had they been White Christians or Jews, that would have been prominent in the reporting. A Muslim is caught planning evil and his religion is conveniently left out of the reports.
Christians, Jews, and many others who are strong and express their faith proudly are mocked while Muslims and Islam are off limits from anything negative.
Here are 172 pages of foreign aide, searching for a bottom line amount is almost impossible. Good luck. Go take a look at where your money goes. The United States is the major donor to almost everything around the world. Time to stop being the world's bank, the world's army, the world's peace keeper, the world's hospital, ...
I've only touched the tip of the iceberg. Political correctness, Liberalism are ruining this country. Do not raise the debt ceiling. Cut CUT CUT the waste out of the budget, cut the PC / we've got to fund everybody in the world attitude. Cut all the foreign aide we give to our enemies, money we have no idea where it goes, how it is spent.
It's time for American politicians and voters to return to a time of sanity, clarity, and put this country and our needs first.
It is time for the majority to rule again.
