Conservatives: Freedom, Not Big Government Is Key >
36th Annual Conservative Political Action Conference, February 26-28, 2009

Feb. 27, 2009--Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), chair of the Senate Steering Committee, a caucus of conservative senators, argued that "freedom solutions will all areas."  "We're not letting freedom work," DeMint said.  He said the economic crisis is due to the government and political greed.  "Stupid government policies have destroyed the accountability of the free market," DeMint said.  "The government is not the answer to our problems, the government is the problem," he said.  DeMint described President Obama as "the world's best salesman of socialism."  He has a book, Saving Freedom, due out on July 4.
