Jesse Helms - RIP

Longtime U.S. Senator from North Carolina, Jesse Helms died today at 86 years of age. Helms was a stalwart conservative who though in the minority in the senate for most of his 30 years in the senate he was very influential. He was so effective at stopping liberal initiatives he earned the nickname "Senator No." We could use more senators today with the common sense and backbone to strongly say "NO!" when that is the right answer. Rest in Peace Senator No.

Yes, indeed, we could use far more Republican senators who were interested in doing what is right instead of pandering to constiutents or trying to be friends with the Democrats.
