DeMint Hunts For Conservatives

Published on 11 December 2009 by admin in General News, In The Media


Recent years have seen many in Republican leadership listing to the left, voting for TARP bailouts, government control of business, unbalanced budgets and other expansions of government - even attempting to hand-pick candidates who will support these policies instead of the Republican platform. But with frustration building over big-government policies, conservatives are fighting to take their Party back.

Senator Jim DeMint, who opposed TARP  and is working to audit the Federal Reserve, is chairman of the Senate Conservatives Fund, which has been working to support conservative candidates in an effort to return the Party to its limited government roots.

“I need some new Republicans, people who believe in constitutional government, a balanced budget and liberty and so I’m out across the country recruiting new Republicans who I think if they get here will not only challenge the institutions of government but be willing to even challenge the Republican Party and our leadership if they feel like we’re going in the wrong direction. I think just a handful of new Republicans in the senate could help change the direction.”

Kentucky’s senate race is a key example of the struggle for the soul of the Republican Party. Like Senator DeMint, Dr. Rand Paul is drawing on the energy of the Tea Party movement to make a strong case for returning to constitutional conservatism. Even as the establishment desperately raises money for his opponent, Dr. Paul continues to unrelentingly champion balanced budgets, the restoration of liberty, and a much smaller federal government. If elected, Dr. Paul can be counted on to vote for principle - not political convenience.

Judging by the polls, the people think it’s about time.
