It’s this kind of crazy talk that was apparently responsible for Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) getting the boot from the House Budget Committee. After weeks of fiscal cliff nonsense, it’s nice (and almost shocking) to hear a conservative approach to government articulated so clearly.

Uh oh. It’s an ideological throw-down from Minnesota state representative (and Matt Damon stunt double) Ryan Winkler.
@repjustinamash Founders did not define liberty as the absence of government, nor as a simple inverse scale. GOP has become a cartoon.

We don’t recall Amash calling for an absence of government, but the absence of leadership in Washington is definitely not cool.
