Steve Deace

The biggest misconception is that we're having a debate about the role of government in America today, when we're really having a debate about what authority or moral ethic we are going to govern ourselves by. The answer to that question then determines the role of government. For example, cultures that abandon the Judeo-Christian moral ethic, as ours is currently doing, end up growing government because something must fill the God-shaped void in the society. And that something ends up being the
state.
