Jim DeMint.... The Heritage Foundation Had a Great Program on the Korean and Japanese Elections Yesterday. AEI Put an Article About You on Their Website. I Must Say My Opinion of You is Jaded from Past Life Experiences.. In Reference to Some issues We're Identicle. Still Pro Choice Moderates Must Be RESPECTED. Sir it's to Build a Coalition.
"...When DeMint departs from Republican orthodoxy, it's in the libertarian direction. He broke with his party just after Thanksgiving, when he voted to bar indefinite detention of Americans suspected of terrorism. Then he voted against the National Defense Authorization Act, a bugbear of civil libertarians. DeMint was an early and vocal opponent of the industry-backed Stop Online Piracy Act, which galvanized civil libertarians on the Left and Right last year. On military spending, DeMint also parts ways with his party leadership, calling for cuts. "Not just the waste," he said in May. "We do need to rethink the money we spend on military and defense. ... Frankly, some of our spending is politically driven because a particular defense system or ship is built in a certain congressional district or state." DeMint upsets some libertarians because of his culturally conservative views. "Good riddance, Mr. DeMint," wrote libertarian blogger Andrew Kirell at the website Mediaite, upon the news of DeMint's early exit...."

Thank you Heritage Foundation for being so kind.
I look forward to the libertarian thoughts that will emerge in the near future.
Last night I talked to a Gary Johnson guy who I agree with on most things but National Security.... He gave me some insight on to how we can communicate a message that "reaches out" to the moderate free market thinkers. If we make an effort the GOP can make the "comeback" they keep talking about.
