    27% Say They’re Conservative On Both Fiscal and Social Issues

    That is a landslide minority

    The teaparty has had no impact in changing americans beliefs...the numbers remain the same.

    he bad economy, a change in presidents, bailouts, health care, the Tea Party and now another presidential cycle, you name it. Still, the basic fiscal and social ideologies of U.S. voters remain largely unchanged.

    Heck, they even refuse to call themselves a liberal at all. It's "progressive".

    In my opinion, these days "progressive" is actually more stigmatized than liberal.

    Why would anyone choose to be liberal with money? It's only a recipe for bankruptcy.

    This doesn't surprise me at all. True Conservatives (Social AND Fiscal) have always been something of a smaller group in this country. Especially since our point of view is not seen as being very "modern", "Progressive", "enlightened", or "nice". It's only those of us who actually BELIEVE in these things who will willingly describe ourselves in that way.

    May I ask, what do you consider being liberal with money?
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Spending, spending, spending....borrowing...borrowing....borrowing...c redit...credit...credit.... Example: Our own government.

    Being conservative with money is creating a budget and staying in that budget.

    Because debt, within reason, is good to have. Having the ability to go into debt, is good.

    I agree that debt is necessary at times. I do not agree that it's good to always have debt.
