Do you enjoy living in a home with your family and only your family? Providing abortion-on-demand, promoting ‘transgenderism’ anti-science, and giving a marriage license to any two (or three or four) consenting adults isn’t the only assault on the family taking place in the Democratic Party. Even their proposed housing policies seem to attack the family unit. Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is now promoting an end to single-family housing in the suburbs.
That’s right. It’s either giant multi-family housing complexes or nothing if Biden gets his way.
As the National Review reports, “Joe Biden and the Democrats want to abolish America’s suburbs. Biden and his party have embraced yet another dream of the radical Left: a federal takeover, transformation, and de facto urbanization of America’s suburbs.”
Citing the disproportionate “persons of color” who supposedly can’t find affordable housing, Biden’s website pledges to go further than Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program, pledging to end single-family zoning in areas designated as sub-urban.
The National Review reports, “It will mean the end of local control, the end of a style of living that many people prefer to the city, and therefore the end of meaningful choice in how Americans can live.”
Chiefly, Democrats desire to end single-family housing in order for cities to annex the suburbs and turn them into urban environments, which demographically tend to favor Democrats’ re-election odds. The suburbs, which tend to be white and vote Republican, when then be swallowed up by metro-areas and turned into “inner cities.”
Called “the [Corey] Booker approach” (now newly endorsed by Biden) will hold suburban zoning hostage to both HUD grants and also to federal transportation grants used by states to build and repair highways. Without those grants, suburban roads will deteriorate and suburban access to major arteries will be blocked. This will result in the suburbs having to eliminate their single-family zoning, which is exactly what progressive urbanists intend.
The implications of a Biden election include the complete and total control of the federal government over the lives of ordinary citizens, even so far out as Montana. Without the ability to provide single-family units, suburban areas will quickly become urban and fundamentally change the way middle-class citizens in rural America live their lives and raise their families.
