Feel free to explain how taking someone else's property on your own behalf qualifies as charity and not theft?


Go earn your living in Liberia and tell what would have been easier

You trust government to right that wrong? As for myself.... Ever heard of KIVA? Oh yeah... I'm fiscally conservative, so I can't support something like that

It is about interpretation.

Fiscally Conservative and Socially Liberal basically, to most people that use it, means that they don't want money wasted on stuff like war, politician salaries, private jets, vacations, parties, abusers of social programs, etc. while at the same time actually using money towards social programs that help the people that actually need it.

 

I don't like tax dollars wasted on career welfare folks that are capable of working and contributing to society but don't do so. I also don't like tax dollars wasted on political staff raises and wars when it could go to helping people that have fell on some hard times and need a pick-me-up from the rest of the country.

 

To me, that sounds kinda fiscally conservative (saving money each year by not wasting it on crap that isn't needed) and socially liberal (helping people that need help).

 

This is generally how I view myself but I also think that fiscally conservative vs liberal relates to how the government should handle things like spending in a depression or what not.  I'm pretty much a Keynesian, so I don't think I really fit calling myself a fiscal conservative at all :P

You cannot believe in small govt/spending less and at the same time support large scale social programs

 

This isn't true - at least the "spending less" part.  Social programs aren't the only place government money goes.

How can you be one and not the other? So you believe that the govt should be heavily involved in things like healthcare, poverty, and education ....if you don't then you are not a social conservative. If do beleive in that then you are going to spend some money and therefore you are not a fiscal conservative.

I believe some of those are more fiscal conservativism on spending. But I believe in fiscal restraint, but that doesn't mean I am against spending on the poor.

I was more referring to things like gay marriage, gun rights, abortion, and other areas that cancer overreaching of theology by elected officials.

fun thread

 

Me:

 

-Croatian male model

 

L--------------right here-M---------------R

 

Conservative when it comes to policy with social implications as in: conserve your energy and don't implement sh*t about what you think a population believes in.

 

I think the economic situation is more internally fixable than we think and need to wise the f*ck up.  

 

No party affiliation

 

Raised Catholic, now just meandering around various principles on goodness

 

Science, innovation and technology drives life as it is.  Don't abandon it but know how to pace yourself.  Moderation is key with EVERYTHING
