[back to part 3: The Constitution]
“It’s All About the Benjamins”
“The Lower Class Needs Care and Dignity and Sustainability”
“Why A Budget is A Very Moral Issue” (and why you are very wrong if you disagree)
I am convinced that Ron Paul will actively slash the US deficit and do more than any other candidate to help bring the US out of debt. I don’t know much about the logistics of economics, but I know enough about the philosophy of it. I will discuss the philosophy and rhetoric of money and government.
Contrary to many opinions, economic issues are and always will be moral issues. People who call themselves “values voters” or voters who “only focus on moral issues” and then neglect economic issues are ignorant and destructive. You shouldn’t be surprised how many problems actually come down to money. You know it happens in marriages, you know it happens in churches, you know it happens in schools. This is one of our government’s greatest problem right now. Do you say that abortion is a big issue? Did you know that women in poverty are more likely to seek abortion when pregnant? Did you know that after a baby is born it’s still human, and still needs to eat and be taken care of? Money is directly related to these things. And if we don’t care about poor families, then we are not “pro family” at all.
