Suicide Rate

 

 

 

The average number of suicides annually for the 9 years before obamanation was elected was 31,500. By the time he left office in 2016 it had increased to a 30 year high to 44,510, a whopping 41% increase.

This is a suicide rate of 14 per 100k population, which is 14 times higher than Jordan, Pakistan, and Peru, and 120 times higher than SYRIA, Jamaica, and Egypt.

If we had had a suicide rate equivalent to SYRIA of all countries, there would have been 304,040 FEWER suicides during the obamanation administration.
There are two factors in this UNPRECEDENTED increase in suicides:
1) obamanationcare.
2) the 91% decrease in household net worth ONLY in the U.S.

How the despicable feminist witches on Capitol Hill failed the public with VAWA.

To "compensate for past anti-male discrimination in justice", to solve social problems the way blind dumb feminist congresspersons "solve" them with VAWA, to match wits with feminism, American men demand that government implement programs which instantly quintuple the female suicide rate for the next sixty years.

bullet

Since the US Supreme Court banned school prayer in 1963, the extraordinary high suicide rate of American men killed an additional 715,000 of them.

bullet

American women commit suicide at a rate equivalent to the overall suicide rates of England, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Spain, and Israel.

bullet

American men commit suicide at a rate five times higher than that.

bullet

White men commit suicide at a rate almost ten times higher than black women.

bullet

The five times higher suicide rate was responsible for one million extra deaths of American men in the Twentieth Century alone.

bullet

Failure to act will result in another 730,000 suicides over the next four decades, twice as many as died in all of WWII.

bullet

The men suicide rate increased from two times to five times higher than women and is now higher than every country but Denmark.

bullet

The state to state variation in suicide and divorce demonstrates that 25 additional divorces parallels one additional suicide.

bullet

Rather than eliminating women's legal rights, restoring school prayer, and upholding existing adultery laws, Congress exacerbated the problem by enacting VAWA and blaming it on things like handguns (which were responsible for only 169 of the 26,869 suicides in 1980--less than 0.7% of all suicides).

bullet

Banning school prayer also caused an additional 550,000 homicides.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics' "Suicides by Age, Race, and Sex, 1994", the rate of male suicides per 100,000 males increased from 16 in 1961 to 21 last year, a 31% increase, while the female suicide rate decreased by 33%, from 6 to 4. Where the male suicide rate was already 2.6 times higher than the female's rate, it is now 5 times higher. If the male suicide rate had just remained constant at its 1961 level, 5,327 fewer men would have committed suicide this year, and 87,934 fewer men have committed suicide since 1961. At a time when "equal protection" was becoming a byword, when courts and Congress could have and should have but didn't consider why men were committing suicide at a rate already more than twice that of women, the Supreme Court single-mindedly undermined family unity and made an already existing serious problem even worse (as the moral minors in Congress sat idly by and watched).

Knowing that American men commit suicide at a rate five times higher than  that of women, are murdered at rate 5 times that of women, constitute 94.5% of a prison population which quintupled in just two decades to 1.8 times that of Canada and 35 times that of China, are acquitted one fifth as often and receive prison sentences 3 time longer than women for the same crime, "win custody" of less than 4% of their children during divorce, Congress failed to act responsibly to achieve family stability, and cannot be relied upon to continue to act responsibly on behalf of America's families and fathers. Instead, Congress accelerated this massive anti-male, anti-father, anti-family discrimination and provided billions of dollars of funding for VAWA (Violence Against Women Act), which every politician must know, or must be made aware, will do nothing less than push the already serious social pathology caused by welfare off the cliff.

The nation with the once world's highest standard of living, with a $1.8 Trillion federal budget, with more government employees now than manufacturing employees, had the resources then and still has the resources now to both comprehend and solve the problem. Had American men committed suicide at a rate equivalent to that of American women, there would have been 21,599 fewer male suicides last year, 647,162 fewer over the last 36 years, and 1 million fewer in the 20th Century. In other words, our failure to act responsibly as a nation cost us three times as many lives as the total number of American battle deaths occurring during World War II (1,000,000 suicides, versus 292,131 W.W.II battle deaths). The human and economic loss is a more important issue than World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Gulf War combined (US Department of Defense) costing $22 Billion annually and $570 Billion over the last 3 decades.

To "solve" this problem by adding even more laws to our existing 22,000 gun control laws is like pushing a string.  It is our high divorce rate which results in our high murder, suicide, crime, and incarceration rates, not guns.   There were more guns per household and no gun control laws just half a century ago, yet compared to today, the murder rate was one third, the suicide rate for men was 24% lower, and one tenth as many Americans were behind bars.  Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians have tight gun control laws, yet commit suicide at a rate equivalent to American men.  Israelis have no gun control laws yet commit suicide at a rate one third that of Amerian men.

Please see Walter Schneider's excellent analysis of the causes.

horizontal rule

"Liberals" blame our high male suicide rate on the 230 million firearms in the US, yet per capita ownership of firearms decreased as the male suicide rate increased--to one suicide per 8,333 firearms.

The degree of restriction on civilian ownership of firearms does not in general correlate with the suicide rate.

Only by carefully selecting data can that appearance be given.

The Scandinavian Countries all have the same high level of firearms restriction and have a suicide rate which varies from 13.3 to 31.6, double that of Australia.

Japan, with practically no privately owned firearms, has a suicide rate higher than Australia, Canada and even the USA.

Israel on the other hand where any citizen of good character may be permitted to carry a loaded firearm at all times has a suicide rate of 6.0, half that of Australia.

horizontal rule

Government's phobic preoccupation with firearms is an inadequate and ineffective response to the grave social problem of suicide.
