Jim DeMint is one of the few in Washington who actually get it.DeMint made a Super Bowl reference during his own speech, pointing out that the victorious New York Giants didn’t take the field to “work with” the other guys or “cooperate” with the opposing quarterback. He pointed out that the goals of the Democrats are so diametrically opposed to Republicans that, on the greatest issues facing us, there is no room for “compromise,” which only works well when the two parties have shared goals. “Every time we ‘compromise’ with Democrats, we spend more, borrow more, and grow the government,” he sighed ruefully.“Conservatism is not a political ‘theory,’” said DeMint. “It is a proven set of principles to make life better, and people freer, and the country stronger.” He added that liberal social planning and the central control of economics isn’t a political theory either – “it’s a proven failure.”DeMint said “the principles of a strong military, and an otherwise limited government” should not be on trial in America – they should be “held on display, for the world to see, and emulate.”
