    BS. I would have agreed with you had you said "republicans have nothing to do with limited government". A true conservative absolutely endorses the notion we should have the smallest, least intrusive government.

    Sure, if you are the one making definitions on what is "conservative". "Well no true Scottsman..."

    People who say they are fiscal conservatives and socially liberal. The very second a person approves using taxpayers monies to advance socially liberal programs or causes, they are no longer a fiscal conservative.....period.
    When people use terms like 'fiscal conservative' and 'social liberal', they're separating social issues from fiscal issues. In other words, when people refer to themselves as 'socially liberal' they're specifically NOT referring to tax payers' money.

    Social conservatives appeal to an authoritative government. Are social conservatives not real conservatives?

    No, that's a libertarian.

    Being conservative with money is creating a budget and staying in that budget.
    Oh, you mean like Bush and his Conservative Congress that turned a surplus into a deficit. Gotcha!

    27% Say They
    Do you really mean fiscally responsible instead of fiscally conservative? Because you can be fiscally responsible and fiscally liberal at the same time and you can be fiscally conservative and fiscally irresponsible at the same time, like cutting taxes for the rich in a deficit.

    I believe in fiscal responsibility, as in balancing the budget, and I think more than 27% of people do too, just not everybody believes in tax cuts and a flat tax.

    Generic Congressional Ballot - Rasmussen Reports™
    36% Dem
    44% Rep
