Criminals need to go to jail and serve their time.
Once we are born, life has undeniably begun
Nukes should be used as a last option, if an option at all.
The national debt is rising, and should be falling
Earth is important, and destroying it should be avoided.
People who are capable of working (mentally, physically) should be working or trying to find work.
If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!
If that is your position, than I don't see it as rational. It strikes more of fear, but fear of what is not clear to me. It was a simple sentence that you are somehow afraid of acknowledging as true. The others are subjective, but this one is so blatantly obvious you have to spend a lot of time transmogrifying it to interpret is as some kind of assertion that life count not begin sooner than birth.
But hey, it takes all kinds...

The last one is too vague for me to agree on.
Capable of work can mean anything. A 15 year old is able to work, doesn't mean they should have to. Neither should stay-at-home wives or senior citizens. Working is based on "need" and that alone. If the individual doesn't need to, then they're free leave that position open for someone that is in the opposite situation.

criminals - much is wrong with our justice system, including sentencing
once we are born - criteria for what constitutes life is not precisely know. Some exit the womb without a heartbeat are effectively "born dead," and some of those are saved
national debt falling - the cut backs and impact on our lives, access to education, retirement, medicare, the military, all would be quite severe if a serious attempt was made to bring it to 0
people who are capable of working - if someone wants to opt out of the rat race, that is their choice and it's no business of mine to tell others how to live
