Senator DeMint; Fighting for the Right Cause

South Carolina's Senator Jim DeMint is one of the very few guys in government that gets it these days.  He has stated, "I'm at a point where I'd rather lose fighting for the right cause, than win fighting for the wrong cause."  Indeed, he seems disgusted with the GOP establishment and has bucked the party by supporting the winning more-conservative candidates in Florida, Colorado, Kentucky, and now Delaware. 

Hopefully the establishment elites of both parties will take notice, pay attention to the people's wishes, and start putting forth and backing candidates that will do the right thing in restoring this country, rather than just gauging whether they can win in the general election.  It is in the arena of ideas that the country will ultimately be saved, and the best ideas or those being articulated by the more conservative and libertarian candidates.   After all, winning an election with candidates espousing more progressive ideals is not really winning, as our country will continue to suffer for it accordingly.  Thankfully we have a few members in congress such as Senator DeMint that understand this.
