Join us in a discussion of today’s political news, issues, crisis, and scandals.
In the history of politics, there is only one fundamental, abiding issue: It is individualism vs. collectivism. Do individuals have the right to pursue their own happiness, as Thomas Jefferson thought and as the Declaration of Independence deemed self-evident? Or do we have an obligation to live our lives for the community or the state, as most societies have claimed throughout most of history? This provides a foundation for much discussion and debate.
Fiscal conservatism is a fiscal policy that advocates avoiding deficit spending. Fiscal conservatives often consider reduction of overall government spending and national debt as well as ensuring balanced budgets of paramount importance. As we all know, our government as of late has been anything but fiscally conservative. We are here to discuss the revival of fiscal conservatism.
Obama is the first man in history to spend $6 trillion in four years and, as if that isn’t enough, he’s the first to spend $6 trillion in four years and not leave any trace. ~ Mark Steyn
I’m not really conservative. I’m conservative on certain things. I believe in less government. I believe in fiscal responsibility and all those things that maybe Republicans used to believe in but don’t any more. ~ Clint Eastwood
Our debt is out of control. What was a fiscal challenge is now a fiscal crisis. We cannot deny it; instead we must, as Americans, confront it responsibly. And that is exactly what Republicans pledge to do. ~ Paul Ryan
Republicans should simply focus on first principles and give the American people what they want – an honest party dedicated to common sense, fiscal responsibility and limited government. If we govern to save the country, we’ll do well as a party. ~ Tom Coburn
What is the conservative movement? It’s pretty straightforward. We believe that the way prosperity is created is when people have the freedom and the opportunity to pursue their dreams. ~ Marco Rubio
If you took every single penny that Warren Buffett has, it’d pay for 4-1/2 days of the US government. This tax-the-rich won’t work. The problem here is the government is way bigger than even the capacity of the rich to sustain it. The Buffett Rule would raise $3.2 billion a year, and take 514 years just to pay off Obama’s 2011 budget deficit. ~ Mark Steyn
