And ignoring social issues has led us to a government too big and a financial mess out of control. A decent and truthful and virtuous nation would not have let this happen.
Right on! A society forever blind to natural laws of creation and unwilling to strengthen moral decision and understanding will grow ever more dependent on government, in one way or another. It is why we are here, as a country, presently. It is frustrating why most people do not grasp the idea, that the better you improve yourself, the better you influence and can take care of your family, and thus society. We have a systemic problem and faulty conscience and faulty wisdom is at the forefront.
