you can't legislate love

"Socialism isn't about compassion simply because you can't legislate love. If we can somehow get well-meaning Americans of every stripe to ponder this simple fact, common sense will deflate the pretensions of all the socialists and so-called liberals overnight at which point people will have to face the simple truth that Christ just as simply conveyed. Without love, all the works of the law count for nothing. The law can discourage evil. Only hearts truly transformed by the power of love can do true works of compassion."
