But you believe in govt spending money during a recession. THAT is not fiscally conservative.
Furthermore, Ron Paul, although conservative personally, is willing to allow others to be socially liberal while being fiscally conservative and you consider him a loon and whack job. That says all.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
