The Limits of "Fiscal Conservatism"
There is quite a debate going on in conservative circles right now over whether or not pro-lifers should stuff their principles right now. The argument is that economic issues are more important. Social issues are "divisive." We need a "big tent." Where was all this talk about a big tent during the years when economic conservatives got free trade, and pro-lifers got nothing? Where was the big tent when Bush cut taxes, and succeeded in doing nothing outside of appointing two pro-life supreme court justices? I really love it when we social conservatives are fine when it comes to unseating Bela Pelosi, but now that we won, we get to sit back and let the Ayn Rand club rule the roost. Really? Don't think so.
