I agree with this Gene, but also lets remember as a congressmen he is elected by the the constituents within his district (as it should be). The only serous competition he has received in recent elections is not from the left but from the folks on the right who thought he wasn't right enough!
I'll buy that but his first loyalty should be to the Constitution above all else.
And his supporters need to remember.... If a free press, and thus the 1st Amendment, is easy to call an enemy... so will the 2nd next time around.
Totally agree.

I'm not sure what this means now within the Republican Party. Are the positions or our new president to the left or right of positions Walden has historically taken, or compared to Walden's opponents within the Republican Party? Or does trying to describe it that way even make sense now? The economic nationalism of the new regime doesn't cleanly fit into the more right, less right paradigm.
