The trouble with my uncle, Rick Santorum


01-03-2012  •  dailycaller.com 

If you want another big-government politician who supports the status quo to run our country, you should vote for my uncle, Rick Santorum. America is based on a strong belief in individual liberty. My uncle’s interventionist policies, both domestic and foreign, stem from his irrational fear of freedom not working.

It is not the government’s job to dictate to individuals how they must live. The Constitution was designed to protect individual liberty. My Uncle Rick cannot fathom a society in which people cooperate and work with each other freely. When Republicans were spending so much money under President Bush, my uncle was right there along with them as a senator. The reason we have so much debt is not only because of Democrats, but also because of big-spending Republicans like my Uncle Rick.

It is because of this inability of status quo politicians to recognize the importance of our individual liberties that I have been drawn to Ron Paul. Unlike my uncle, he does not believe that the American people are incapable of forming decisions. He believes that an individual is more powerful than any group (a notion our founding fathers also believed in).

Another important reason I support Ron Paul is his position on foreign policy. He is the only candidate willing to bring our troops home, not only from the Middle East, but from around the world.

Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate trying to win the election for a reason other than simply winning the election.

This year, I’ll vote for an honest change in our government. I’ll vote for real hope. I’ll vote for a real leader. This year, I will vote for Ron Paul.

John Garver is a 19-year-old student at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. John is a strong supporter of Ron Paul despite his love for family member Rick Santorum.

Mr. Santorum's voting record and public statements clearly verify a number of "problem areas" that SHOULD worry the "heck" out of the T-Party - So, WHY do some of "us" choose not to look that deep or ask probing questions???

For The Record:  I personally have the following problem's with - Lier candidate "Rick Santorum"...

 
1.)  He WILL NOT Repeal - the PATRIOT ACT, restrict DHS, or disband the TSA... (He IS a Control Freak)

2.)  He has Voted For Gun Control! ... (Free Men Have Guns, Slaves DO NOT - Mr.Slavemaster Santorum)

3.)  HE VOTED TO RAISE THE DEBT CEILING FIVE TIMES!  ---  THATS F - I - V - E TIMES!!!

4.)  He MAY Audit The FED - BUT, He will NOT shut it down... (An IMF Big Bankers "Boy Buddy") 

5.)  He only wants to deport "Illegals that have committed crimes" - (please define the word Illegal)...

      BUT, He Voted to give Social Security benefits to illegal aliens, while voting against an

      additional 1,000 border patrol agents ...  (Save US, Save US - NOT!!!)

6.)  He is Anti-Abortion in ALL cases including Rape, Incest, or the mothers health...

      BUT, He Voted to send hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood - the

      nations largest provider of abortion???  (I'm confused - Life?/Death?/Life?/Death? - or just BULL) 

7.)  He has been asked about his support/agreement with "U.N. AGENDA 21" (which calls for a world population "reduction" of 5.8+ BILLION PEOPLE, Global enforcement of food/water/shelter regulations, attrition by wars, control of all the worlds natural resources, and to make it all legal - their own World Court Administration to approve it all) ... BUT MR. SANTORUM HAS NOT PROVIDED AN ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION - (unlike Romney & Gingrich who both DO SUPPORT at least certian parts of it) - so I guess I will continue to have doubts about Rick on this "minor point"... (NO ANSWER - should mean - NO VOTE!)

8.)  He WILL NOT end Foriegn Aid (even though I'm pretty sure he knows WE'RE BROKE!) ...

      BUT, He Voted to give $25 million in foreign aid to North Korea (Aaahh, they're our enemy right?) 

9.)  He WILL NOT end the Afgan War or draw down the budget that funds it ... (gotta guard all that Opium) 

10.)  He DOES NOT SUPPORT Right To Work Laws (nationally) and has said that this issue should be

      decided by the individual states (which is probable payback to his numerous union supporters). 

 

But on most other issues - WHO CARES - the above list is enough to bury him in my book!

Answer to "Jane":  No, this is a tactic to marginalize anyone that will do lots more harm than good - GOP (in this case), or DEM when the voting public feels especially stupid.

Answer to "Art":  You're partially RIGHT - Hannity has said "some things" a few times (once, twice?) - but ONLY to keep things stirred up for his "Fair & Balanced ACT".  BUT - By Far, the MAJORITY of Seans commentary is hard core neo-con rah-rah nationalism & supportive of BIG GOVERNMENT missuse of our troops.  You're also RIGHT that America dosen't have a Draft - just like we didn't before Pearl Harbor, or when th U.S. ran short on Vietnam "Cannon Fodder" - so, MY POINT is ole Uncle Sam (or nowdays just the Prez - as in WHO needs Congressional Approval anymore) can declare a Draft overnight if they want one.
 
Answer to "Art" (Part 2): 
A "BELLIGERENT SUPER POWER" is any nation that covertly arms both sides in a conflict so that IT can interject itself later on and claim the spoils.
"A Belligerent Super Power" covertly provokes civil unrest or conflict to overthrow foriegn governments for IT'S own greedy self interests (national security / OIL / Opium / Trade Demands?).
"A Belligerent Super Power" uses deadly depleated Uranium to blow up the enemy, and then orders IT'S troops to secure (march through) that area, get sick- get NO VA treatment- and commit suicide or DIE from it!
"A Belligerent Super Power" has military planners contrive to kill our own citizens to fake the public into war with another country (see Operation Northwoods, documented - OK City & 9/11 - soon to be proven).
"A Belligerent Super Power" threatens trade sanctions, or bribes of military hardware to foriegn governments in return for their voting for BAD U.N. Treaties (ie: Agenda 21, Carbon Taxes, One World Currency, and others).
And "A BELLIGERENT SUPERPOWER" un-mercifully over-taxes, over-regulates IT'S citizens, bribes & intimidates all state governments, denies approval of alternitive medical treatments to IT'S citizens while accepting graft and payoffs from corporate pharmaceutical interests, dumbs down our children in IT'S government mandated schools, devalues OUR currency, and makes massive and silent "loans" to other nations and world bankers - while demanding repayment from OUR future generations.
 
So, "A Belligerent Superpower" does any damned thing IT wants, to anybody IT wants, anytime IT wants - and only GOD can stop an entity thats this far gone!  Isn't this US, Art?
 
Answer to "Moxie":  You're entirely correct in your thinking - it's NOT We The People at all.  IT IS the evil & wicked "middle management" type career bureaucrats, committee chairmen, and military generals that will sell out their fellow countrymen to stay in power through revolving appointments - from one administration to another.  The guarantee of private employment after they are discovered and removed is what these "Highly Placed Subversives" look forward to, and is what carries the biggest reward for them.  Selling out America is just their hobby and pastime while they poison the generations, and rot our government from the inside out.  
 
WE can not expect congress to wake up anytime soon and stop this - because "suprise", it's full of the same type of graveytrain seekers I've described here.  This is the reason jerks like Gingrich were worth 100K his first term & 30 years later 300+ million?  Either our laws protect ALL of us - or they protect NONE of us!
Comment by Moxie on January 4, 2012 at 10:57pm

We The People....are not the Belligerent it is those We have allowed to overrun and corrupt our country both from within and outside our Borders, that are Belligerent. It is not easy for many of us to think, or except that we have allowed the wool to be pulled over our eyes. We have been the proverbial sidekicks to the school yard Bullies for far to long now. 

Art, you and I both know that the "illegal alien" supporters are only money hungry power houses using the desires and fears of "illegals" to gain power.

This is the way of Evil doers...focus on the burdens and social issues that weigh heavy for a small number, escalate that issue and grow that number. Promise they will be delivered from those burdens, point the blame on others that do not share that burden. Riducule and demonize them. Gain support from the wealthy, and uniformed "travelers", sympathizers, and ignorant.  Ta Da!  A special interest group ala mode (Mobs). Anarchy! Based on lies!

I must consider the one thing that I fear the most from Ron Paul, the unknown. I am afraid of what I can't predict would happen if he were to clamp down on how government has operated under its past, and present foreign policy.

However when I consider all the other candidates I predict they will not remain in step with what they are saying right now, today to us the American people. Broken promises, secrets, and lies...all justified on the pretense that they know better than us!

I have always tried to credit myself for never getting to comfortable with things; it makes a person vunerable.

Complacency is ignorance disguised as laziness!  Ignorance is bliss!

 Mark may I ask why you call the USA the toughest and most BELLIGERENT super power on earth. If I closed my eyes I can allmost see OBAMA saying that!!!!

Comment by Art and Edwina Olivas on January 4, 2012 at 5:11pm

No disrespect Mark. But I hvae heard Hannity speak against what you have stated. Now I don't where you have been BUT we don't have a DRAFT for our military. It sounds like political propaganda to me.

Comment by Mark Pentecost on January 4, 2012 at 3:32pm

No disrespect Art - but Sean Hannity is paid to decieve all of us.  Like Santorum, he is a warmonger and cheerleader for the Military Industrial Complex / DHS / TSA / UN-Patriot Act, and neither one of them will do anything to stop the build up of the Police State in America or the World. 

As far as the kids letter exposing his uncle Santorum - it's legit, hes for real, and he has NOT been paid to say any of this - he simply supports the ONLY truely Constitutional candidate still in the race.  Younger folks have always seemed to have a better sense of smell when it comes to detecting "BS".  Probably because THEY will be the ones used/drafted to go kill all the make believe enemy's OF THE TOUGHEST AND MOST BELLIGERENT SUPER POWER ON EARTH..  THEY will be the future generations forced to pay the price for Americas never ending game of trying to be the worlds policeman.. and THEY also see that they're currently being stripped of their liberty to object to any of it.  No Wonder THEY (and our troops) are supporting Dr. Paul in such great numbers.  I think THEY are correct - and why I support Dr. Ron Paul as well.   

Comment by Jane Crawford on January 4, 2012 at 2:58pm

This is the new tactic to marginalize any frontrunner in the GOP. They know "big government" is a bad label for anyone.   John Garver is a supporter of Ron Paul who has very Libertarian views ie. very little government, not just smaller government!  The libs are afraid of Santorum gaining momentum and thus throw everything at him.  Rick is a true conservative.

Comment by Art and Edwina Olivas on January 4, 2012 at 1:24pm

 LISTEN TO SEAN HANNITY ON KFYI RIGHT NOW. HE'S PRAISING RICK SANTORUM RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!  

Comment by Art and Edwina Olivas on January 4, 2012 at 12:30pm
