I am sorry to see him leave. We could have used him in the Congress for the rest of his term. But he's leaving so he could teach and otherwise spread the conservative message. In that way, he may have more success than he would in cess-pool known as Congress, where his stands may be more symbolic than not. Still, congress won't change if only the corrupt men stay in it, and like it or not, Congress is messing up our country. Still, I respect deMint's decision and I wish him the best.
If DeMint is replaced by a principled, liberty-minded person, hurray for us! If he's replaced by a neocon, we've definitely lost.
