On the other hand, social conservatives need to become more active on fiscal policy. They need to understand the relationship between high government spending and high taxes. They need to understand that they have an interest as social conservatives in reducing that spending and cutting those taxes. It’s nice that the government would give allowances to families, but wouldn’t it be better for those families – indeed for everyone – if the cost of living went down as a result of real tax cuts and government reform?
After all, what the government gives, the government can take away – especially if you deviate from that newly minted moral code liberals claim to fear, but can’t wait to impose.
