The US senator Jim DeMint from South Carolina is fast becoming one of my favourite politicans, for a variety of reasons. He's one of the few remaining senators with a real backbone, who's standing up for capitalism and the true American way of life. I especially admire him for the following article: DeMint Opposes Wall Street Bailout
I urge you to check out his official homepage and to show your support.
P.S. Are there anyone from South Carolina here, who are more familiar with him? He hasn't been on my radar for very long yet, though as you understand I certainly like what I've learned about him so far.
