Why Didn't Jim DeMint Endorse Ron Paul in SC?

• Posted by Laurence Vance
 Drug warrior, warmonger, and police statist Senator Jim DeMint has written a new book (Now or Never) on the glories of—believe it or not—individual liberty, decentralization, and limited government. I intend to review it soon. In an interview about his book, DeMint said: "A lot of the libertarian ideas that Ron Paul is talking about…should not be alien to any Republican." Okay, Jim, so why didn't you endorse Ron Paul in the SC primary? You backed Romney in 2008, but backed no one in 2012. Why not Ron Paul? And I am still waiting for a return call I was promised from your DC office about this.
