The character of an individual and culture of a society is dependent on the success of the family more than any other human factor.
Congressman Franks believes the family is still the best Department of Welfare, the best Department of Education, the best Department of Drug Abuse Prevention, and the best Department of Public Safety that there will ever be.
He also believes that if the traditional family in America fails as an institution, that we will bankrupt this nation trying to address the results. As the family goes, so goes the nation.
Trent believes that government should foster security, economic, social, and tax policies which will give American families the greatest opportunity to be safe, happy, and successful.
