#CPAC2013: Mike Lee

After taking the stage forty minutes late and switching rooms at the last minute, Utah Senator Mike Lee finally managed to rally the crowd with his quick speech on the importance of limited government and its roots in the Constitution.

“Government does not have the capacity to create civil society; it does have the capacity to kill it,” claimed Senator Lee. “America is extraordinary not because of who we are, but what we do.” Just as you might expect from a dyed-in-the-wool Tea Partier like Mike, he hearkened back to the good ol’ days of George Washington and parchment and warned us that deviating too far from our Constitutional values will only spell disaster for the American way.

In closing, he encouraged the audience to remain vigilant against such evils, stating: “As I look out into the crowd at CPAC… I’m also confident that our country rests in good hands- the hands of the people.”

Lee, a Tea Party favorite who was first elected in 2010, earned a 100 percent rating from both the Club for Growth and the American Conservative Union.  He serves on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Judiciary Committee, and the Joint Economic Committee.
