    Nothing frightens the Left more than the threat of a balanced budget.

    Since when have you cowards actually done any fiscal responsibilty in your hell holes??? The answer is NONE! Euro-cons are just as pathetic as the Euro-left, I hope your nations go into complete chaos.

    Really

    Being a Canadian which government had a balanced budget and which one took us from a balanced budget to a deficit? Which government in the US took what was very close to a balanced budget to what was the largest deficits the US had known untill the current ones. Which governments in Europe have had balanced budgets, and which ones do not (ie not the right leaning ones

    It is not the left that fears balanced budgets, but politicians who pander for votes

    Calling yourseelf a Conservative when running for office, or joining a Conservative political party, does not necessarily make someone a Conservative.Making Conservative promises during a political campaign, as per BHO, does not make one a Conservative. You have to actually walk the walk.

    It is the Tea Party in the States who is arguing for fiscal conservatism and it is largely the Left who is in opposition.

    And in Europe it is the Right who s attempting to bring down the cost of government and the Left who is protesting, and rioting, against it.

    The Reform party ran on a policy of fiscal conservatism, yet when one of its members took over fiscal conservatism went out the window.

    In Europe the Scandinavian countries are all fairly left in nature and most have had balanced budgets in the last decade.

    The Tea party claims it wants fiscal conservatism, and being in oppostion to Obama it just might actually push for it. But its elected officials will abandon it just as soon as reelection times come and "campaign" donations are needed

    Sure. As I said, politicians can call themselves anything, make any promises, but then, when in power, they may behave quite differently.
    In Europe the Scandinavian countries are all fairly left in nature and most have had balanced budgets in the last decade.
    If the Scandinavian countries can call themselves Socialist and still balance budgets, and behave responsibly for the future, then I say good for them. But the exception does not make the rule.

    The Tea party claims it wants fiscal conservatism, and being in oppostion to Obama it just might actually push for it. But its elected officials will abandon it just as soon as reelection times come and "campaign" donations are needed.
    They do more than "claim" they want fiscal conservatism, that it is their singular platform. We don't know yet how the candidates they supported will behave after they're in office. Likely there will be some who keep their promises to be fiscally responsible and others who won't. That seems to be the way it goes.
