DeMint retires, SC has potential for TWO liberty Senators

Today's big news was the retirement announcement of Senator Jim DeMint. There had earlier been some discussion in the DP forums of the candidacy of fusion Libertarian-Republican candidate Keith Blandford as being something of a spoiler for Tom Davis. Well, now, that's all changed!

For Davis, going up against the Graham machine is a HUGE political risk. Now, he can go after the empty seat, so that SC voters can support both him AND Blandford for Senate.

All of a sudden, South Carolina is looking like the liberty battleground of 2014! Imagine a statewide, get-out-the-vote campaign promoting TWO Ron Paul-inspired, liberty-minded, constitutional conservatives for US Senate. This could be BIG!

Ahh, think tank.

umm; "Let me think a bit.

Oh, I get it now!

Dr. Paul was right on everything.

Job well done my fellow Heritage friends.
And, thanks for the paycheck"!

well there's your chance, those of you that think rand paul isn'

ron paul enough. get in there instead of just talk. if you're really that good, run for president in 4 years and i will even donate to you

Nice payday for Demint. I

Nice payday for Demint. I assume the 7 figure salary had something to do with his decision.

Here is Gov. Haley's contact

Here is Gov. Haley's contact info lets send a strong message that we want Tom Davis!

Sent her an email

I just sent Governor Haley an email asking her to support Tom Davis. Not sure what impact an email from an Arizona resident will have but all you South Carolina residents better start bombarding her with emails and phone calls. I wish Arizona had a state senator like Davis. You are very lucky South Carolina. Now get to work!

For Liberty!

Call Nikki!

Great idea. We need to lobby Nikki Haley to appoint a true fiscally conservative, limited government constitutionalist to DeMint's old seat.

Tom Davis is our best option.

This is especially important for people in SC. Any SC residents want to call Nikki Haley's Office?

Nikki Haley on DeMint:

"U.S. Senator Jim DeMint has served South Carolina and the national conservative movement exceptionally well. His voice for freedom and limited government has been a true inspiration. On a personal level, I value Jim’s leadership and friendship. Our state’s loss is the Heritage Foundation’s gain. I wish Jim and Heritage all the best in continuing our shared commitment to America’s greatness."

And if anyone is near Bamberg, here is an excellent opportunity. It would be great to have an articulate and convincing liberty-lover talk to her face to face:

"Do you have an issue you'd like to discuss with Gov. Haley? Then, make an appointment to meet with her on Saturday, December 8, in Bamberg. Gov. Haley is holding constituent meetings at 2:00 PM at Bamberg City Hall. Anyone wishing to schedule an appointment with Gov. Haley should call (803) 734-1999 between 9:00 AM and 9:30 AM on Friday, December 7. Appointments are first-come, first-served. For more information, call (803) 734-2100."

About the only thing I'd contact that cunt for

is to curse her out. Tell her I said that will ya.

What exactly is the point of

What exactly is the point of electing "liberty candidates" if they're just going to get constantly bashed for not being "pure enough?" Do the Rand haters really think that Tom Davis is any better than Rand?

What's the point of electing so called Liberty candidates

if they're not pure enough and only water down Dr.Paul's message.

Actually, I think Tom Davis is the same as Rand. Possibly not good enough or a trojan.

This time will be

different. Now we know how the game is played. Much of the ground work has been laid. We have precinct walk lists, we have made relationships with media and we know where to spend our money. These races will not be "state and local" politics. The liberty candidates will have support from around the country.

2013-14 in South Carolina will be an exciting place to be for the liberty movement.

Start now and contact those you know in SC. Build your own alliance.

Peace and liberty,
