CPAC – Senator Jim DeMint continues…

“Every Congressman and Senator takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution.  I think it’s time they started taking that oath seriously.  Freedom includes the freedom for mismanaged institutions to fail.  There is a battle raging in Washington now between those who want to defend the Constitution and those who wish to disregard it.

I along with several Republicans introduced a proposal last week which would place a one-year moratorium on earmarks.  My web site lists the names of those who have NOT co-sponsored this proposal as well as those who have.  Please let those who have not know that you urge them to do so.

I’d rather have 30 Marco Rubios in the Senate than 60 Arlen Spectors.  Of course, if we had 30 Marco Rubios, we wouldn’t have to settle for just 30.  Strong conservatives will pave the way for preserving America and its principles of freedom.  I’m afraid we’re causing a little trouble for the establishment.  When Republicans don’t do the things they said they would, voters deserve the choice of another Republican.  We put up a candidate against Arlen Spector.  He went back to his roots in the Democrat Party.

We endorsed Marco Rubio and Chuck Devore in CA.  Michael Williams in Texas.

Let’s talk for a minute about the Presidential race in 2012.  This time I hope Americans will expect more from their next President than a good speaker.  Just because you’re good on TV doesn’t mean you can sell socialism to freedom-loving Americans.  If America is going to survive and thrive in the future, we need to get back to basics.  That means no more bailouts.  That means we will not spend money we don’t have.

And it definitely means we will not give away our precious Constitutional rights to foreign terrorists who want to destroy us.

Reducing the size and the scope of the federal government is the only way to solve our current fiscal problems.  I didn’t come to Washington to make friends, and so far I haven’t been disappointed.  We need to make sure that this administration and Congress doesn’t have the strength to show up at Waterloo – much less win the battle.”
