The natural progress of things is for government to gain ground and for liberty to yield.

- Thomas Jefferson

Sorry, but...

Sorry, but if we, even for a moment, considered the possibility that (R)epublicans had entertained the idea of becoming fiscal conservatives we were so very wrong. The Republicans are going to continue there routine of being weak-kneed (D)emocrats just like they were during the Bush (Rd) administration:

Senate Republicans circulated a sweeping plan to drive down the cost of mortgages by expanding the federal government's role in the industry [Read]

That's right. The solution from supposedly small government (R)epublicans is to expand the roll of the federal government, arguably the reason we are in this mess right now.

Let us put it this way: If you are a fiscal conservative, you have NO representation via a viable political party. NONE.
