    The federal government was never intended to be involved in social issues of any kind. The purpose of the federal government was intended to provide the common defense, promote the general welfare (meaning everybody's welfare and not individual demographics or special interests), provide just enough laws and regulation to allow the several states to function as one, strong, cohesive nation, and then it was to recognize and secure our unalienable rights and leave us strictly alone to govern ourselves and form ourselves into whatever sort of societies we wished to have. The federal government could assign no rights to anybody--that was the whole idea behind the vision of liberty the Founders held--but would recognize our God given or natural rights. The people would allow just enough resources to the federal government to carry out those constitutionally mandates functions.

    If we do that, then everything else takes care of itself as we deem necessary and are willing to commit our resources and put in the time and energy.

    Neither are not socialist! Or even pseudo-socialist.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
