America’s Biggest Problem: The Breakdown of the Family

The Left and the social welfare establishment wants children born out of wedlock because they are far more likely to be dependent on the government. They are 20 times more likely to wind up in prison and 9 times more likely to drop out of school. Well-known author Charles Murray said, Children born out of wedlock, are “the single most important social problem of our time – more important than crime, drugs, poverty, illiteracy, welfare, or homelessness because it drives everything else.”

While we can talk about jobs, education, or crime, our economy and freedoms will inevitably decline as long as the number of children born out of wedlock keeps going up. Was this caused by the government, and if so, what are the politicians going to do to turn things around? Let’s look at current programs that are given largely to single parents that they would almost certainly lose if two working parents were married.
