"Different racial and political groups often have completely different standards, moral codes, and types of behavior" is a racist statement. Who is he to say that racial groups have different standards and moral codes and behaviors? Who is he talking about. All the Jews, Asians, "hispanics", blacks that I know are family oriented, hard-working, pay their bills and taxes, are patriotic enough to serve in the military, etc. etc. They all have the same standards, good morals, even though they cleave to their own cultures in some cases, they are not above making friends and sharing meals with each other. It is great to see people at a table & family that look like the world. It is prejudiced whites that paint the others as inferior.

1) Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
