It took me a while to figure this one out
Most of the country are generally fiscally con and socially lib...so, I always found it interesting that there is no real representation for this
overall...if anything, we tend to get lots of the opposite (socially conservative and fiscally liberal).
Finally I figured it out...the issue is that its almost impossible to be both..like wanting to be thin physically but have your food consist of high
A liberal is someone whom wants some (but not limited to) of these programs:
Environmental help (programs to curb pollution, reforestation, clean waters)
Elderly caretaking (medicare, medicade, social security, and other programs to honor the elders)
General education (high standards public education, everyone whom wants going to university)
Social net (basics of life provided for everyone in need, food, shelter, clothing)
All these programs are in their own right worthy of what is claimed to be the best nation on earth
all these programs do cost money...which means income is required...taxes, and then spending..this is liberal fiscal understandings...you can't say
your a social liberal, then cut welfare, social security, education grants, etc...it doesn't work...just sitting back as a politician and flashing
the peace sign while you do nothing to progress (hense the word progressive) the civilization past the issues of 3rd world nations makes you not a
liberal, it makes you a empty suit.
Conservatives are a bit easier, but also (in my opinion) the party of the damned
Let the people keep all their money, to hell with social programs
If gramps made some bad investments, good luck on the streets, government will give you nothing
Education? sure...if you can afford it, else grab a shovel and hope a machine doesn't replace you as a ditch digger
Hungry? Eat a roach
Costs far less with this model, and there is more "freedom" with your own money...government is so minimal that they are lucky to put out a literal
fire in their own tiny office building...much less a proverbial fire in the nation. Socially conservaitve people are people whom do not want income
going to the government for others...the old strawman is brought up "rob peter to pay paul" to explain the simplistic statements.
Money should not be going to the government in their model, it should be given to the rightful owners...the corporations
So yes, although many suggest they are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, I would suggest there is no such thing. I think what many people
are saying is they are socially liberal and responsibly fiscal..meaning spend lots of resources restructuring and removing the insane corruption and
middlemen from tax dollar to what it pays for. aka, a smarter government.
