1. Gov'ment doesn't create jobs. It's up to the entrepreneurs.
The sooner we realize that, the better off we will be.

Aqua Buddha, 2010.

3. Usual tripe
boiler plate, been to a tea party event, you heard him.

When the limit to the debt comes up, he could crash our credit rating. I hope Mitch McDonnell has a one way talk with him.

6. All you need to know
is he basically gave a list a demands and said he was going to do his damnedest to bring down the United States Government. If the patriot act was created for anything its to watch people like this bastard.

9. Really pushy attitude. Basically said he was going to show the
Rest of the senate what they are supposed to do. Then he blathered on about the US being the richest, free-est nation, and govt must get out of the way of the private sector in doing everything. He's definitely an anti-govt extremist. He went on about the US debt being a hindrance to our economy.

13. He will respectfully request other Senators
To consider smaller government. What he isn't telling them is that he is an anti-war Libertarian. He's an odd mixture. I'm anti war, so I like that side of his. I don't like Republicans, though. They are lousy.
