Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is considered by many to be one of the most consistent conservatives in DC. Some conservatives have been miffed when he supports the Presidents too much as well as his embrace of some left-leaning proposals. Meanwhile, some of the President’s most dedicated supporters have attacked Lee’s conservatism when he goes against the President.
Regardless of one’s perspective on the Senator, it’s hard to argue against this quote, which embodies a primary tenet of limited-government federalism and proper Constitutional conservatism.
“We ought to have more people who believe in constitutionally limited government. We have to have more people come to Congress with that mindset. I think we can make this a better place, if, when elections happen, we support candidates who share that philosophy.”
He may not have been speaking directly about the American Conservative Movement, but it’s definitely among our highest goals. Limited government is usually just campaign rhetoric for Republicans in DC. When the time comes to act in a way that actually limits government, very few are willing to put their power behind it. Lee is an exception. He usually acts in favor of removing powers, whether within the executive branch or even within his own legislative branch. He’s even spoken against judicial overreach, which is ironic since his name has been mentioned as a possible Supreme Court Justice.
Less government at all levels but particularly in Washington DC is imperative if America is going to reverse the trend of expanded powers across the board. The individual is the true seat of power. At least we’re supposed to be.
