    Helfeld: Should the government protect peaceful citizens against people that want to use force to take their money?
    Moran: Yes.
    Helfeld: Can you live well if other people can gang up on you and forcibly take your money?
    Moran: No.
    Helfeld: Should the government redistribute its citizens' wealth by forcibly taking money from some citizens through taxes in order to provide goods and services for others?
    Moran: If that's the question you're asking, the answer is yes, because the people who are making the wealth in this country are making it as a result of the investment that has been put into the education of the work force that produces their goods, the money that has been put into the roads and transit systems and rails that carry the commerce that produces much of their profit, and the money from their taxes that has gone into the military to protect their wealth.
