Real morality is not hurting other people unless they hurt you first. That includes government taking more than it should for things it isn't supposed to be doing and not doing the things it is supposed to do.

For instance: Federal government has no authority or business telling a person what they can do on their own property or in the privacy of their bedroom. They do that every time they make a law about welfare or who can get an abortion, what kind of drugs they can use. The Federal government is however, supposed to keep us secure from invaders, stop people from illegally crossing our borders etc.

Tenth amendment says very clearly that if the constitution doesn't say the Feds can do something then they can't do it.

2) The more a behavior is rewarded with attention, fame, sympathy or money, the more of it we'll see. We recognize this almost instinctively when it comes to good behaviors, but we also tend to almost habitually block it out when it comes to behaviors we don't want to encourage.

3) There's nothing shameful about being poor -- but, if you stay...
