Should America have a one child policy?
Everyone knows that we are running out of space. Cities are now being built upward instead of outward. Pollution is ravaging the planet and at this rate temperatures will be unnaturally high by 2050. With all of this in mind, do you think America should have a one child policy? Stopping people from having kids may seem like a rash decision, but given the fact that social security may run out for the next generation it might be the best way of saving money and the environment.

With only one child poor families will have fewer mouths to feed. With only one child, inheritance issues will be a thing of the past, and after a couple of generations of one person gaining the money of two it could help raise people out of poverty.

Population control means less unemployment as well, because less people will be around to take jobs meaning that there will be enough to go around. Although it is a long term solution, with the ways things are going now it should be seriously considered as an option.

One child policies would improve our educational system. With a one child policy there will be less kids in classrooms. When there are less kids in classrooms teachers can work hands on with their students. In this day and age we need the brightest students possible so that we can compete in a global marketplace and face challenges presented by global climate change.

Which leads me to my last point. America should have one child policy to help curve global climate change. Every person on the face of the planet is expected to pollute a great deal in their lifetime. The only way to instantly cut much of that pollution out of the equation is to make sure there are little people to pollute in the first place.

Knowing all of this, would you support a one child policy in America?

Scary to think our school system has produced such warped thinking. Do us all a favor and get yourself fixed or relocate to a communist country.

We should have a no child policy for; welfare recipients, anyone with a tested iq below 90, morbidly obese people, 2 time felons, and gay men. And welfare and food stamps should only buy very specific goods, all generic, and very minimal amounts. No aid for; smokers, drug users, anyone EVER convicted of ANY kind of domestic violence, and iillegals or their children. And illegals should be shipped to the farthest south of mexico and dumped with NOTHING. Once you start on any aid any kids born atfer should be taken and mom nuetered. Get a job, get your kids back. Have a second while drawing and lose ALL benefits forever. We need to start letting lazy and stupid people die out, not encourage rampant breeding.

The birth rate in US is 2.1 child per family. That means static population growth through births of existing Americans. Europe is far worse off. Spain is 1.5 and Italy is 1.4.

In Russian the birth rate has fallen to 1.1 per couple. That means that each generation there are half as many Russians. China will soon move north since there will be fewer Russian to defend their land and China needs the space/resources. The only people breeding are the 3rd world folks.

I won't even get into the freedom argument that others have already addressed. "There ought to be a law...." people are ruining this country.

lets begin with taxing the amount of garbage people dispossess away.
lets keep an eye on the brilliant architects who keep designing ugly buildings that produce more and more crazy and disenchanted people. no more shoe boxes for living quarters.
of course people can't keep on over breeding and expecting to have the same quality life enjoyed by people who have less mouths to feed.
educate boys and girls about their own future, now a days education has to go beyond the usual math additions who most don't care to learn.
the quality of life is in trouble thanks to ignorance and carelessness of people who only care for the basics never reach for the whole picture.

it isn't about communist thinking but about common sense, don't you have enough of the troubled people spreading all over?
if thing don't change at the end the only solution may be to resort to a communist way of life.
ether way you'll loose
