LINK: Fiscally Conservative but Socially Liberal

You can’t separate fiscal issues from social issues. They’re deeply intertwined. They affect each other. Economic issues often are social issues.

I've often said this exact thing - that I'm fiscally conservative and socially liberal - or self-identified as a Libertarian. To me, there's a lot to the Libertarian platform that makes sense and seems like it would be in the best interest of the most people. That being said, I'm beginning to see that something that best serves the most people is likely damaging to those who need the most help and are the least able to help themselves. 

Balancing these issues is complicated, and it's a conversation that dives deep, into the role of government, the role of the church, and society's obligation to all of its members.
