As he campaigns President Trump often says he is saving the suburbs. So, why do the burbs need “saving?” Who’s killing the suburbs?
WHO’S KILLING THE SUBURBS?
The short answer is: the Obama/Biden Administration put in place a process of transforming the suburbs into crime-ridden, over-populated areas by removing their tax base AND giving it to the cities, outlawing single-family housing and annexing the burbs to nearby big cities WITHOUT A VOTE OF THE PEOPLE. This was already progressing in many burbs on the east coast until Trump stopped it.
Democrats are accomplishing this via a RULE, NOT a law passed by congress after public debate. That rule is called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, or AFFH for short. There is nothing FAIR about this, and housing FOR ALL will deteriorate so much within a generation or two as to be unrecognizable by today’s standards.
AFFH takes away decision-making from local communities for such things as zoning, housing, water & sewer, garbage pickup, parks & recreation, and gives it to the Federal government. It is a top-down approach wherein voting rights and input of local residents would be stripped away.
WHAT DOES BIDEN THINK ABOUT KILLING THE SUBURBS?
Is Uncle Joe satisfied with this plan to wipe out the burbs? Nooooooooo! He thinks the process of removing ONE MORE choice from Americans is moving TOO SLOWLY. So, he has a plan to accelerate this scheme beyond what the Obama/Biden Administration did. He will put Senator Cory Booker, New Jersey Democrat, in charge of what they call “The Booker Plan.”
Booker, AKA “Spartacus,” came up with the idea of denying highway & street funds to suburban areas unless they submit to a racist re-location process, dragging certain people into these dying burbs by giving them tax dollars as incentives, and forcing long-time suburbanites into the inner cities by making life in the burbs intolerable.
If a suburban area is successful in remaining autonomous, with local control, its own tax base and voting rights, its residents will be driving on deteriorating streets and roads. Eventually, they will disappear and residents will be forced out of their cars, walking to the nearest public transportation. The Booker Plan also accomplishes another Democrat goal: permanently getting Americans out of their cars. The Ruling Elite will still have their chauffeur-driven Cadillacs & limos, however.
RACE BAITING USED TO KILL THE SUBURBS
As the public slowly becomes aware of this scheme, it will be sold to Americans using the racist lie that suburbanites are all lily white and inner-city residents are all minorities. It will also be sold on the notion that suburbs are only populated by high-income Americans. Wrong and wrong!!!
FIFTY-TWO PERCENT OF MINORITIES LIVE IN SUBURBS, and their numbers are rising. For example: According to the 2010 census, blacks living in suburbs rose from 37% in 1990 to 51% in 2010. A 14% INCREASE IN JUST 20 YEARS!!! The 2020 census is likely to prove this trend is continuing.
In addition, fifty-nine percent of Hispanics live in the burbs. These Americans CHOSE NOT TO live in the inner city because, typically, cities have worse schools, more crime and less room to enjoy life.
BUT DON’T WORRY ABOUT MILLIONAIRES
Not all suburbs have multi-million-dollar homes occupied by multi-millionaires, such as the Clintons, the Obamas & the Bidens. The average annual household income in the burbs is $55,000. And the gap between household income in big cities and the larger suburbs has been narrowing in recent years.
If you think the wealthy suburbs where Biden, Booker, Pelosi and other members of the Ruling Elite reside will be destroyed right along with YOUR burb, you have not been paying attention. THEY are superior to YOU: Rules for thee but not for me.
ACHIEVING CONTROL THROUGH SUBTERFUGE
So, if it isn’t about fair housing, or fairness in general, what is it all about? Control: Herding us into big cities where we are easier to control, where we are more dependent upon government, THAT is the goal of this scheme.
More & more Federal control and less & less citizens’ control over their own lives. More & more choices will be denied to Americans as the Ruling Elite gains even more power. They will still enjoy THEIR suburban lifestyles in mansions behind iron fences, where they don’t have to rub elbows with the 99% they control. THIS is centralized planning exactly like in China, Cuba, and other Communist countries.
Period! Let that sink in!
