The Social Issues ARE the Economic Issues
You've heard the political pundits say that this election is entirely about the economy. They say we should set aside social issues and vote on the economic issues. This is a false dichotomy. America's economic and social issues are firmly linked. The breakdown in the family has cost $6 billion/yr. Abortion claims 1 million future producers, consumers and inventors. The billions cannot be measured. Planned Parenthood claims $330 million alone. We spend $70 + billion on failing public schools and lower achievement is taking us out of global economic competition. There is a direct correlation between the decline of morals and the decline of the economy. Conservatives must keep the social issues in the forefront of this election.
