Oddly enough, Michelle Bachmann has been a government employee and beneficiary most of her life. Michelle Bachmann worked for the IRS from 1988 to 1993, then entered Minnesota political life in 2000 and has worked as a state and then federal employee to this day. The Bachmann's "Christian Therapy Clinic", Bachmann & Associates, received $30,000 in state & federal funding. The Bachmann's received government aid for their foster children, by legally defining their home as a treatment house and garnering a daily reimbursement rate per child from the state. Marcus Bachmann's parents were recipients of $260,000 in agri-business subsidies and the Bachmann's still benefit from government subsidies through the partnership stake in the inherited land now rented to a dairy farm.

How can anyone who believes in fiscal conservatism, guaranteed failure of government, rampant corruption, free markets or any of the other neo-con/tea party/libertarian principals actually vote in good conscious for Michelle Bachmann? Just something to think about as the election year draws near.
