a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change.Apparently, Senator Jim DeMint, prefers the tradition of the late 1940s and 1950s. At a recent church rally, the following statement was attributed to him,
DeMint said if someone is openly homosexual, they shouldn't be teaching in the classroom and he holds the same position on an unmarried woman who's sleeping with her boyfriend — she shouldn't be in the classroom.The Republican Party wants to be the party of a smaller, less intrusive government. Then how is he going to know who is sleeping with who? He doesn't want government in your business. Only in your bedroom.
