    KG made a very good point in a different thread(shocking I know ;) ). We keep hearing about moderate republicans, but they don't seem to exist on here.

    Just curious how you define yourself, poll to follow.

    Sort of a specious poll, since libertarians are not conservative.

    They operate based on certain very simple but very precise principles.

    Conservatives do not.

    Two different animals altogether.

    I haven't voted republican ever as a libertarian. Or more specifically a classical liberal.

    JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: I was as surprised as Juan and Byron were and you and people watching, but I agree with Juan and Byron and Erick Erickson. Jim DeMint is a classic, traditional, Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan conservative Republican, none of this George Bush compassionate conservative mealy-mouth stuff. He really believes that the states have a role in government, that the individual is greater than the state, that the government should shrink.

    Napolitano: DeMint Will Be Able To Bring Libertarians Back In The GOP | RealClearPolitics



    The big news in conservative circles today is that Jim DeMint will be leaving the Senate to run the Heritage Foundation, built from scratch by its innovative founder, Ed Feulner, into a colossus that redefined the way public-policy ideas could be integrated into the ongoing political process on Capitol Hill. Before Heritage was created in 1974, ---------

    And to Senator Jim DeMint, I dedicate this song and a salute for a very big step, in the "real right" direction:

    Wow. That is utter bullshit.

    Demint is a extreme, ultra social conservative who libertarians wouldn't piss on if he were on fire.

    A. Over the top supporter of the War on Drugs.
    B. Supports a flag burning amendment.
    C. Supports a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
    D. Wants to ban all gay school teachers.
    E. Voted YES on extending the PATRIOT Act's roving wiretaps

    And there's plenty more where that came from.

    He's one of the people Barry Goldwater warned us about, fer chrissakes. Goldwater would have spit at him.
