Sen. Jim DeMint — whom Fox News is apparently touting as a potential '12 nominee — explains modern conservative economic theory…
"You can't be a fiscal conservative and not be a social conservative. A large part of the expanse of government is to make up for dysfunctional society, because our culture's falling apart. The family's falling apart."
You know, I always kind of had a feeling that the subjugation of gay people and opposition to womens' rights were important cogs in the greater economic machine. Nice to see those suspicions finally confirmed. Thanks, Sen. DeMint.
