My politics are socially moderate but fiscally conservative. I do not believe in either more tax cuts for the rich nor more safety nets for the poor. The middle class do not need anything but they are disappearing fast. While I understand Keynesian economic concepts I do not believe in endless deficits forever. At the same time I believe a balanced budget amendment would be a disaster leading to a major depression out of the next recession. There tend to be business cycle recessions about every 10 or so years. Turning one of these into a major depression would be insane.
