"Families would be in better shape if our tax code didn’t push married mothers who wish to raise their own children into the labor force, in large part to pay for a welfare state that encourages unskilled, unmarried teenagers to bear illegitimate children the rest of us must support."
Hail to the Chief, The American Spectator, March 1996, p. 68.

    Several issues. Economics 101; if one individual works per household (family), the economics of society will make it possible for one person's labors to pay for a home, transportation, food, clothing, etc. When a second person from that household enters the work force (as the norm), prices will rise to reflect the situation so that it now takes two laborers to accomplish the same thing as the one laborer norm. Enter Keynesian economics with the second plank of the Communist Manifesto (enslaving larceny) - families denigrate along with individual integrity, morality, productivity and so on, and so on and so on. A criminal tax code does not equate to the laborer's mandate to the paying for illegitimate children and the rest of unmarried teenagers hardships or states of affairs. It is the malignant and devastating religion of socialism that mandates such destitute grievance. Though socialism is a route cause of both enslaving larceny and the illegitimate hardships of unmarried teenagers (both scenarios relating through socialism), they are not necessarily a cause and affect - one of or to the other. Concerning the welfare state, there is a correlating mentality linking that to enslaving larceny.

    The women's lib movement was orchestrated by the Rockefeller/CFR banksters to raise tax revenues (which go into their pockets). Not to say that women weren't/aren't in general paid equally as men for the same services -- however, in many fields today, workers are paid the same rate regardless of sex. And sales positions usually pay commissions, so whoever sells the most, makes the most.

    My wife is what they call 'a stay at home Mom' but I think that does not even come close to describing her contribution and worth -- she's home-schooled our children, keeps us fed and healthy, manages every aspect of our home and finances, provides love and support 24/7, and the list goes on. She is worth a heck of a lot more than what she can make at 'a job' at a 6 figure salary. Of course, now that the children are grown, she can run her own business from home. It pains me to see so many of our friends who both work, send their kids off to be 'taught' by government dependents, and have so little time with each other. Some even have their babies and return to work within a few months to leave their kids with 'day care' workers. All this so they can pay their rent, car payments, credit card bills, and have a few weeks 'vacation' once a year. I wouldn't trade our way of life for anything.

    As Grover Cleveland noted, The Constitution does not allow for a federal welfare system.
