Morality dictated by government will change with every election

Ron Paul’s speech explaining a new bill he has introduced to remove federal funding for abortion at home and abroad is posted on LewRockwell.com today.  Perhaps the best part of it is his discussion of morality dictated by government, which is always a bad idea:

Free people should be left alone to follow their conscience and determine their own lifestyle as long as they do not interfere with other people doing the same. If morality is dictated by government, morality will change with every election. Even if you agree with the morality of the current politicians and think their ideas should be advanced, someday different people will inherit that power and use it for their own agendas. The wisdom of the constitution is that it keeps government out of these issues altogether.
