Senator David Shafer posted an interesting account of Congressman-elect Paul Broun’s previous campaigns. Shafer calls his victory a “testament to perseverance.”
I hope the new Congressman will follow the four way test on his website asking himself questions like…
- Is it constitutional?
- Is it a proper function of government?
- It is something we really need?
- Is it something we can afford?
These questions do not get asked enough, if it all.
The pandering to the religious right bugs the hell out of me. But I think the limited government minded individuals among us should give him the benefit of the doubt.
