I'm fiscally conservative and socially liberal, and I won't vote for Republicans or Democrats. Goldberg doesn't even mention real social issues. They are all freedom issues, and freedom is important to me, both fiscal and social freedoms. The biggest social issues for me are the drug war, prostitution, gay marriage, and militarism. I take the small government view on each of these issues. You guys might not think these are important issues, but I won't tolerate any politician that infringes upon the decision making of sound minded adults. Either you believe in a free state, or you don't. I won't settle for candidates who don't respect my personal sovereignty.

There is a difference in thinking something is good, and thinking that in a free society individuals should be able to make up their own minds on the issue,

Dear Socially Liberal Fiscal Conservative Friend,

That's pretty toothy, so I'm going to call you Bob.

But whatever specific name you go by, Bob, you know who you are. You're the sort of person who says to his conservative friends or co-workers something like, "I would totally vote for Republicans if they could just give up on these crazy social issues."

When you explain your votes for Barack Obama, you talk about how Republicans used to be much more moderate and focused on important things such as low taxes, fiscal discipline and balanced budgets.
