Sen. DeMint at CPAC: ‘America Is Teetering Towards Tyranny’

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) told a standing-room-only crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday that Democrats in Congress and the White House are the inspiration for a revolution that he and fellow conservatives hope is sweeping the nation ahead of the 2010 mid-term elections.

“Three years of a Democrat majority and just one year of President Obama have awakened Americans and led millions to become more passionate advocates for freedom,” DeMint said. “This has created a wave of new Republicans who are embracing the energy and passion of the American people.”

He also said that the direction the Democrats are trying to steer the country is being rejected by Americans.

“The Democrats’ arrogance and audacious power-grabs have made Americans stand up and say, ‘Enough is enough,’” DeMint said. “We now see all too clearly that the hope and change the Democrats had in mind was nothing more than a retread of the failed and discredited socialist policies that have been the enemy of freedom for centuries all over the world.”
