Marching Orders

There are elements of Tea Party philosophy that I identify with, but I don't feel that movement defines my politics. I think deficit reduction will have to be more incremental at the outset, and many tea partiers are in favor of some drastic measures that I think would be harmful at this point. I admire the grassroots nature of the movement, and I am glad that they helped make yesterday successful for conservatives.

Jim DeMint is one of the few Senators who embraced the Tea Party movement. He has some advice for incoming conservative senators, and I think it is wise counsel.
