Recently, the media have been giving Senator Jim DeMint a lot of grief about his statement in response to Arlen Specter switching parties. Senator DeMint stated, “I would rather have 30 Republicans in the Senate who really believe in the principles of limited government, free markets, and free people, than to have 60 that don’t have a set of beliefs.”
I agree with Senator DeMint. I am a firm believer in QUALITY OVER QUANTITY.
When did people quit running for office because they believed in the position? What is the media saying to the American people by rejecting this statement by DeMint? The media is telling Americans that is okay to have people in office who are just there to get paid and don’t really care otherwise what is happening. Why would we want to continue to elect people like that?
It’s time we stopped supporting politicians who do not do what they say they will do and do not truly believe and stand for what they say they believe and stand for. It’s time we take back our country.
