    I wish I had known that this promotion was coming. I opened my ING Direct savings and checking accounts just last week.

    I think fiscal conservatives would be more likely to support Libertarians, than social conservatives. Most of the Libertarian party platform on social issues, isn’t much different than Democrats. The main difference would be federal funding for them.

    There are many Republicans that are fiscal conservatives, but moderate or liberal on social issues. Just as a lot of social conservatives, are more moderate fiscally.
