Social conservatives who are not fiscal liberals are either hypocrites, sadists, or unrealistic. Think about it. If you vote against abortion or birth control, are you not making a silent choice to underwrite the fiscal burden all of those unwanted births will impose on society? Because if you are not, then you are making a series of choices with only one possible outcome: a larger underclass increasingly dependent on either government handouts or NGO support.
It is time for all of us who carry the monicker of “conservative” to realize that we must make a choice between running the country on the one hand and engaging in moral crusades on the other. It is time for us to put the social agenda back in the freezer, or send it to church. We have bigger fish to fry than worrying about what’s going on in America’s pants.
