The Heritage Foundation: Jim DeMint- Socialism Conservatism & Fiscal Conservatism

Source:The Heritage Foundation- U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (Republican, South Carolina) speaking at The Heritage Foundation in Washington.
"Senator Jim DeMint spoke at the morning session of the fifth annual Values Voter summit. Among the topics addressed at the summit were the role of the tea party movement, the economy, the 2010 midterm elections, and the conservative legislative agenda."

As far as Senator Jim DeMint goes: he was actually one of the few Republican members of Congress that I actually respected when he was there in the 2000s and so far in this decade, before he left the Senate this year, to run the right-wing Heritage Foundation in Washington. Having said that, I didn't respect him because I tended to agree with him. I respected him because at least I knew what he believed, because he was honest enough to tell people what he believed, instead of constantly worrying about what political statements and positions could help or hurt him politically.

Now, I believe in fiscal responsibility as well. But it's one thing to say that government is too big, spends too much of our money, puts too many restrictions on individuals on one hand and then on the other argue that we have too much freedom on the other. 

In late 2010, Senator DeMint came out in favor out outlawing from the Federal Government, not just same-sex-marriage and pornography, but adultery as well. Is government too big, spends too much, does too much, or not?
