Jim DeMint: Washington Can Hear You Now

The Tea Party, Beck, Palin and especially Jim DeMint of SC have helped to awaken independents and conservatives alike in a move to take back our country from the entitlement minded far left fringe of the Democrat party (uh! the whole Democrat party). In this article, Jim DeMint has set forth the basis for the "New" Republican party. Tea Partiers and Independents alike will support candidates who are true to these bedrock principles.

For years, conservatives have been told that the only way to create a big-tent party was to support big-government candidates who were "electable," rather than principled. History suggests otherwise. Majorities are built on principles, not the other way around.

When that big tent came to Washington last September, everyone in it was yelling that they wanted less government, not more. Democrats mocked these voters and tuned them out, but liberty-minded Republican candidates tuned them in. As a result, races that were once considered unwinnable have flipped from "safe Democrat" to "lean Republican" this election cycle.

Thanks to the grass roots, Republicans have a slate of candidates who believe in constitutional, limited government. We will balance the budget, repeal the unconstitutional health-care takeover, create a predictable tax and regulatory environment in which businesses can create jobs, and restore a sense of fairness to the economy. This platform stands in stark contrast to the Democrats' record. They have racked up trillions in debt on bad legislative bets, picking winners and losers in almost every major market sector. Their policies created turmoil and uncertainty, not prosperity.

Washington can hear you now
