      Yes, I don't think he's had many liberty-inclinations for some time now.
      Many of us here are thankful to see him go, and hope that his FairTax bill -
      which he loved to tout in the district, but never did anything for in DC -
      leaves with him. I used to support it, before I researched it more in-depth.
      No thanks. :-/
