Former US Senator and current head of the Heritage Foundation, Jim DeMint, says that Americans have not fallen out of love with the American dream. The problem is Washington forcing marriage equality and other policies on us.
From Jim DeMint:
No one’s fallen out of love with the ideal America, the American dream. Many people have fallen out of love with the people who run the country and with one-size-fits-all solutions coming out of Washington — this divides people. When Washington decides that they’re going to redefine marriage and force it on people, for instance, it makes people angry, resentful of their country and of the people who are pushing it. And so instead of being able to live together — and actually loving a neighbor whom you disagree with on an issue like marriage — we begin to resent the neighbor who’s using the coercive force of government to try and force us to believe something we think is definitely wrong. People can live together in harmony, despite a lot of different views — until the government forces us all to the same goal.via Good As You
Did you think you had heard the last from Mr. DeMint? Sorry, but no, he is still around and making ridiculous comments. We'll probably hear more from him.
