Hey USA: Make More Babies By Charlie Sykes

Ours is the Age of Political Distraction.

In case you haven’t noticed, our debates increasingly focus not on the issues before us, but on the cultural distractions of the moment. It’s not so much that we fiddle while Rome burns, as much as we obsess about the Kardashian’s while the roof is collapsing on us.

History will recall with bemusement that while America was drowning in debt, we created yet another unaffordable entitlement and launched a $1 trillion stimulus spending program that promised to jump start the economy, but didn’t. As we slouch toward an inevitable debt crisis, we earnestly debate… what? Soda bans, plastic bag regulation, and how hard we should crack down on kids who use their fingers as pretend guns.

But those distractions may pale before the fertility crisis.

Even as we obsess over free taxpayer-funded contraceptives, gay marriage, and women in combat, the country actually faces an awkward and politically incorrect reality: we’re not making enough babies.
