I’m gratified Senator Jim DeMint and I see Ron Paul’s candidacy in the same light. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) has brought to the fore many staggeringly important issues and pounded them home. DeMint appreciates that and hopes Paul can stay in the race to enable our eventual front-runner to absorb and appreciate those issues as well. DeMint believes that without adopting some of Paul’s Libertarian ideas, the Republican Party will never become the Majority Party.
“Ron Paul is right on the fact that we’ve got an out of control and unaccountable Federal Reserve that is eventually going to create a major crisis,” said DeMint. “He’s also right in the importance of individual liberty and the whole constitutional limited government. And more of our candidates need to incorporate that.”
As to Paul’s foreign policy DeMint makes a good point:
“I don’t agree with Ron Paul on foreign policy and his disengagement around the world, but we’re going to end up where he is because we don’t have any money,” DeMint said.
Amen to all of the above. How jazzed by the Federal Reserve will Mitt Romney be? Thanks to The Daily Caller.
