Everyone I've met, listened to on TV, or read about on the internet who identifies as a fiscal conservative is also anti-abortion and gay marriage, and is usually a staunch Christian.

Fiscal conservative here...very, very socially progressive.

There is a whole state with such politics...perhaps you've gambled in that state's most renown city? The state is called Nevada.

Nevadans tend to hate taxes, but as the saying goes, "don't much care" about what other people do in their spare time (so long as it doesn't impact them).

Lots of people are. Unfortunately not too many of them are politicians.

Ron Paul's ideology of personal freedom and responsibility isn't good enough for you?

To answer your question - No. If they are not socially conservative, then they cannot be fiscally conservative. It would be a contradiction to be fiscally conservative and socially liberal. To be socially liberal is to be fiscally irresponsible.

You are also making an overly broad generalization about social conservatives. For example, I am a fiscal and social conservative that is not anti-abortion, opposed to same-sex marriage, or even Christian. However, that does not mean I want my government involved in any of those areas.

Me.

I do not care what people do as long as it does not harm others in the process.

I was a human shield during the Alabama abortion clinic bombings.

Is that enough for ya???

Ron Paul is one candidate who believes in economic and social freedom. Neo-cons don't like him however because he doesn't believe in spending trillions of dollars in oversea bases and wars to defend the US against the Muslim threat. Ron Paul thinks we should spend enough on the military to prevent anyone from attacking the country but stop the constant military engagements/wars. He is a non-interventionist in foreign policy which the mainstream Republicans hate.

Sorry, you are wrong. I don't know how you have come to such a conclusion. I'm socially liberal but very fiscally responsible.

Me. I will not even vote for a candidate who deficit finances their political campaign. The government has no business interfering in family or medical matters.
I'm am also beginning to question the concept of marriage as it pertains to government subsidies.
