I really like Jim DeMint he is one of the FEW bright stars in that sea of darkness called the district of corruption. If you've read his books you know what he stands for and he voted his convictions. When I heard of his intended departure I viewed it with dread as I have this sinking feeling that congress no longer if ever represents the American dream, Sure there are a few Like DeMint people of conscience who fight the good fight. But IMHO the majority are simply there for their own self-aggrandizement and care little, except at election time, for the rest of us. Jim DeMint will be sorely missed by the people even if they dont realize it.

Just before announcing his departure from the United States Senate, Jim DeMint gave me one last reason to praise him in that job.

He had spent Tuesday morning pointing out the lunacy of “putting revenues on the table,” which by necessity involves the belief that government does not have enough of our money. He advised against Republicans dividing over the issue and “treating the President’s proposal like it’s serious.”

He even delivered a twitter jab to the House leadership: "Speaker Boehner's offer of an $800 billion tax hike will destroy jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more."
