OpinionJournal - The Fertility Gap

Prof. Arthur C. Brooks at Syracuse University reminds us that, for whatever reason, liberals don't have as many children in their homes as do conservatives. Prof. Brooks goes on to show that that's bound to cost the Democrats election after election in the future.

We've heard this before, of course--including a suggestion that the liberals' real problem is that they aborted their kids, while conservatives raised theirs.

And we also know that at least some liberals understand this. That's why they would like nothing better than to shut down all private schools and make homeschooling tantamount to truancy. They want to mess with our kids' heads, because they don't have enough of their own kids to ensure their continued electoral success. Things might be close now, but in ten years...!

But Prof. Brooks' analysis is incomplete. Conservative Americans aren't the only ones having lots of kids. So are illegal immigrant Latins--and Muslims. So I repeat what I said earlier: that in a generation, we're going to be in a shooting war against those seeking to revive the ancient Aztec Empire and the medieval Baghdad Caliphate.
