6. I agree with your girlfriend.
Plus, people are entitled to their opinions, however misguided they may be. It sounds like you are friends with them, so there's no good reason to spoil a friendship over politics.

Fiscal conservatives are somewhat necessary to have around. While I'm a fairly wildly fiscal liberal, balance is needed so as not to send our national debt through the roof. Guys like that bring us back to earth a little. So long as they're not spouting ignorant things like, "The Department of Education should be disbanded!" or "Welfare should be eliminated!", it's not horrible to be a fiscal conservative. I do agree that a good number of them are fiscally conservative because they know exactly who it will hit - minorities, women, children, etc. I don't think they're the majority, however. I find social conservatives to be far, far worse.
