American Principles Project founder Robbie George almost effortlessly describes the inextricable link between strong, traditional families and the health of our economy – indeed, our nation. It makes one yearn for more political leaders to be taught by him, as was Senator-elect Ted Cruz, who is already proving himself to be a strong force for constitutional, small-government conservatism even before being sworn in.
Most establishment Republicans eschew the social issues of traditional marriage and abortion, and tell their conservative base that we need to focus on other issues such as the economy. Professor George, though, explains how and why the social issues are the basis for a healthy and strong economy.
His logic is irrefutable. The traditional family and free markets are the basis for economic success. Liberty is the fuel for that engine, and freedom goes hand in hand only with a moral people. Our nation is strengthened by strong, traditional families; it is strengthened by a moral respect and responsibility for ourselves and others.
When Professor George explains all this, you wonder how any establishment Republican would want to suppress expression about the social issues.
