Something that drove me crazy in the last election cycle and looks like it will continue to drive me crazy in this cycle are fiscal and small government conservatives voting for Republicans for no other reason than they are not Democrats. The Republicans they vote for have shown that they have completely abandoned the principles of fiscal conservatism and limited government, yet they still get their votes.
Try having a discussion with this crowd and they start making comments about how a 'tax and spend democrat' will never get their vote. Then, they'll go on and rant about how the Republicans are no better. By continuing to vote for Republicans for no other reason than they are not Democrats, fiscal and small government conservatives are shooting themselves in the foot. The Republican party will never respond to the concerns of fiscal and small government conservatives because they don’t have to. No matter what they do or how they betray their values, Republicans have the votes of the majority of this group.
The only thing worse than a tax and spend liberal is a borrow and spend Republican. At least the democrat is being upfront and honest in his intentions.
