Fiscal Conservatism

Many politicians talk about fiscal conservatism but few actually live it. As pointed out on Random Nuclear Strikes Ron Paul is one of those few.

He returned $100,000 of his officer’s budget to the Treasury. Of course last year he returned $90,000 and the year before that he returned $58,000. This sounds like the man I would like in charge of this country’s budget.

Regardless of how you feel about the man you have to give him credit, he does what he says he’s going to. That’s as rare in politics as common sense in the health care debate.
