The New Fiscal Conservatism

The new fiscal conservatism is matching every dollar spent with a dollar of revenue, and the wise, careful, and effective expenditure of the public treasure.

Independent Fiscal Conservatism does not mean being opposed to taxes. Outright opposition to taxes qua taxes is appropriate only for an anarchist. A patriot understands that nothing worthwhile is cheap…or free.

But spending public funds for the private good or allowing money raised from the people to be wasted for lack of appropriate care, however, is unacceptable. Waste, inefficiency, and entitlement are what we should fight.
