I agree that conservatives need to learn to make the moral case for liberty and the free market. Right now liberals seem to have the market cornered on moral arguments related to economics. But the problem is that the family issues will end up being a moot point if the government takes control of all economic power. Right now liberals seem to always win by playing their trump card about the greed of the rich and about the need to care for the poor. Jesus teaches both the validity of private property (how can we covet if our neighbor can't own anything?) AND the individual responsibility to care for the poor. The verses commanding charity and alms-giving are always directed to people, not governments.
