Your premise is flawed, the government cannot make anyone “straighten up and fly right”, those days are long gone.
 

I am naivve. I admit it. I hold out an option (the only option) for the salvation for America is dependent on our returning to those long gone days. The government did do it. It worked for 200 years, but now?

I remind you what America's greatest president once said;  "If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."

I will to my dying breath hold onto the hope that America retuns to one nation under God. What are YOU going to hope for?

In my advanced age I’ve become a more of a realist. I do still have hope for the future but as the years tick by my perspective shows me that we are accelerating to the abyss not away from it. Government cannot fix the problem. The ONLY thing that will get us off this path is some kind of massive unifying event that resets our priorities.

New laws will not change anything. If God cannot prevent you from sinning the government surely cannot.

You are not naive, just hopeful. But you should separate your hopes and dreams from the reality the world provides. Laws rarely accomplish what they set out to do and more so when they make criminals out of good men.

“Past performance is not a guarantee of future gains” that not only applies to finance but life in general. History will repeat itself because history shows that it will repeat itself ;-)

You cannot make someone become a believer, they must come of their own volition. The consequences of moving away from God is a less moral society but the government cannot fill that void nor should it try.
