    Name one thing fiscally conservative about the Republican Party.

    One.

    Even in Minnesota where they "pretend" they are they are not. Not even close.

    But go ahead. Name one.

    What about fiscally conservative and socially liberal applies to Republicans getting elected? The premise was that liberal social referendums are passing and Republicans are getting elected. That has nothing to do with fiscally conservative and socially liberal. Nothing.

    "Claims to be fiscally conservative" is the very definition of today's Rs.

    Republicans haven't been actual fiscal conservatives since the Roaring 20s.

    Do they even claim to be anymore? Really? Haven't seen any claims like that this whole cycle. The claims since 1980 were all a lie anyway. A lie to complete the heist. And the heist continues.

    Being fiscally conservative is stupid anyhow, they only use it as a boogeyman to demean minorities mostly. It's also why some of these stupid ideas floated by Pelosi and other dems like pay-go need to be shot into space.

    I think it was unofan or Kepler who said itís impossible to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative. That person had a great post about it.

    Canít find it on mobile but itís out there.

    They canít be reconciled.

    It would've been Kepler. I used to be a Republican in my 20s, so there's no way I said it.

    Depends on your definition of fiscally conservative. I guarantee my definition is different than Paul Ryan's.

    Yeah, but it was only like one or two years ago at the most.

    Seems to me that the real #WalkAway movement in the past decade has been from the Republicans. At least among the educated.

    Re: What's on your ballot?

    Here in Mass we have;

    - Nurse to patient ratio requirements
    - Definition of a corporation for campaign finance
    - LGBT rights

    The LGBT question will be interesting as differing from the norm a ďyesĒ vote maintains the status quo and does not get rid of rights. Hoping that does not create confusion as a ďnoĒ vote typically maintains the status quo for most ballot measures.

    The definition of a corporation could be an interesting debate. Could we write out Citzens United by defining what a corporation is?

    Last poll I saw was 55/41 in favor, with only 4% undecided. I doubt this will make much of a difference.

    More concerning is that in the same poll, the proposal to establish an independent commission to redraw the congressional districts in 2020 was ahead 48-32, but ballot initiatives require 50% to pass.
