    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.

    So far things have gone well.

    The moderation is lite except in the CDZ which I discovered by trial and error.

    There seems to be a lot of high school drop outs mostly on the far right fringe, and a lot of intellectuals on the far left.

    I avoid both extremes.

    The ancient philosopher Hesiod said "moderation in all things".

    Conservative are smaller group than Liberal. I am sure about this. In Union.

    Careful with the oxymoron of intellectual far left liberals.

    High school dropout far right fringe is just redundant.
