Tom Davis statement on Jim Demint Retirement

"There is battle going on right now for the soul of the Republican Party, and the stakes are extremely high. Will the GOP truly be the party of cutting the size and scope of government and expanding individual liberty and economic freedom, or will it be the party of compromise and accommodation, one that is willing to increase taxes “for the good of the country”?

There has never been any question as to what side of that ideological divide Sen. Jim DeMint stands; he has long been a warrior in the United States Senate for restricting government and empowering people. And thanks to Sen. DeMint’s willingness to challenge the status quo Republican leadership, we now have true conservative champions like Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz serving alongside him in DC

Today’s news that Sen. DeMint is leaving the United States Senate, in the middle of the debate on how Congress should respond to the so-called “fiscal cliff,” is akin to an army losing a general in the midst of battle, and it is my hope that Gov. Nikki Haley swiftly appoints someone to serve in his stead who is just as committed to the liberty movement, and who is just as willing to stand for what is right as opposed to what is politically expedient."

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

What the?....

DeMint part of the Liberty Movement?!

I've never heard anything so absurd. Where was he when we needed him? Playing good-old-GOP-boy, that's where.

Tom Davis would make an excellent U.S Senator.



We need to lobby for Davis

We need to lobby Nikki Haley to appoint Tom Davis. Any SC residents out there?

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."

Please, all SC Patriots, just do it!

Let her know how much it will help her image with the turning tide of political awareness. Tom Davis is her best choice in the matter. Maybe, if enough voters tell her that, face to face, she might(?) listen. It's worth a try.
