ABSTRACT
The article discusses Republican U.S. Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, his support from the Tea Party movement, and change he is bringing to the Republican Party. DeMint's success in getting fellow Senate Republicans to place a ban on earmarks is discussed (earmarks being characterized as bribes for votes for legislation with budgets that are too high). DeMint is said to want to reduce the size of the federal government, with the earmark ban being an early step in the process. The authors opine regarding the value that DeMint's political philosophy will bring to the Republican Party.
