Well most people here tend to be "fiscal conservatives" but what does that mean?  We all want balanced budgets, but how do the "fiscal conservative-socially progressive" types reconcile the high levels of federal spending required by the socially progessive within you and the limited government-lower taxes and lesser spending on social programs that most "fiscal conservatives" advocate?

Liberal.

Bring back the estate tax--US problem isn't income disparity, it's the disparity in wealth.

As a possible explanation, some people who are economic conservatives may consider themselves to be socially liberal due to their opinions with regards to abortion, religion in schools, etc. Things that don't necessarily incur extra spending.
