“Too of­ten in mod­ern pol­i­tics, de­bates about our val­ues have been viewed as ei­ther wedges to win elec­tions or un­nec­es­sary dis­trac­tions to be avoided. But the truth is that the so­cial and moral well­be­ing of our peo­ple has a di­rect and con­se­quen­tial im­pact on their eco­nomic well­be­ing,” Sen. Marco Ru­bio re­cently told a Catholic Univer­sity au­di­ence, in a speech ti­tled “Strong Val­ues for a Strong Amer­ica.”

The Florida Repub­li­can added, “As the so­cial philoso­pher Michael No­vak once said, the fam­ily is the orig­i­nal and best de­part­ment of health, ed­u­ca­tion and wel­fare. It is cru­cial in de­vel­op­ing the char­ac­ter of the young. And those ef­forts can be re­in­forced in our schools, re­li­gious in­sti­tu­tions, civic groups and our so­ci­ety.”
