The government should raise revenue by taxing income rather than consumption.

It is immoral to be lazy.

Some crimes are so serious that the only proper punishment is the death penalty.

Everyone should have the right to trial by jury.

Everyone should stand up for the National Anthem.

Members of society needn't be familiar with the history and traditions of our culture.

Cutting taxes can't ever increase government revenue.
