The Most Dangerous Candidate the Republicowards

Rick Santorum-Perhaps the Most Dangerous Candidate the Republicowards

Have Ever Put Forward Rick Santorum is a Big Government statist who believes the president has powers not given him in the Constitution. He has stated that a too strict reading of the Constitution gives citizens too much freedom. "A radical freedom," he called it. The fact is, we need a whole lot more freedom in this country-not less. In the last eleven years we've lost more freedoms than we have in the rest of my lifetime, and I well remember the last years of Ike. That's over 50-years ago, through the '60s and on through to 2012.

This is one of the few candidates I've seen the Republicowards put up that may be worse than John McCain-if that is possible.

 

Santorum is dangerous!! Wolf Blitzer recently interviewed Sen. Rand Paul on CNN's Situation Room and asked Paul to comment on "on the issue of Iran, when it comes to Santorum saying he's ready to bomb Iran." 

Paul responded: "The nations needs a commander in chief who's in charge of nuclear weapons who will not use them carelessly, who will not take the nation to war carelessly and who also understands that Congress gets to vote on declaring war. One man ought never decide for our country to go to war." Amen!!

Here are a couple of Santorum's scary statements.

In a December, 2011 Fox News debate Rick Santorum made this amazingly

anti-Constitutional, pro-Statist statement: "We need to make sure that they [Iran] do not have a nuclear weapon. And we would, should, be working with the state of Israel right now; we should use covert activity and we should be planning a strike against their facilities and say if you do not open up those facilities and not close them down, we will close them down for you."

This is even worse, when he throws Russia and North Korea into the mix: "I'm hopeful that some of the things we're seeing with respect to the nuclear program-that the United States is involved with. Which is, on occasion, nuclear scientists working on the nuclear program in Iran will turn up dead. I think that's a wonderful thing. I think we should send a very clear message that if you are a nuclear scientist from Russia or from North Korea or from Iran and you're gonna work on the nuclear program to develop a nuclear bomb for Iran, you are not safe. And if people say, well you can't go out and assassinate people, well, tell that to [Al-]Awlaki. OK? We've done it. We've done it for an American citizen."

Santorum is also a hypocrite. Before he rightly attacked the newly found mandate in Obongocare that forces religious hospitals to perform abortions and provide contraception, he admitted that he has voted in favor of the same things.

He told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News a few weeks before the Obongo-contraception bruhaha exploded this: "The bottom line in my position is very clear. I've had a consistent record on this [issue] of supporting women's right to have contraception. I've supported funding for it. I actually have been criticized by - I think it was Governor Romney or maybe it was Congressman Paul's campaign for voting for contraception, that I voted for funding for - I think it was Title X - which I have voted for in the past, that provides for free contraception through organizations, even like Planned Parenthood."

This man would make for the nation a horrible leader, as bad as Obongo on many points, and worse than any Republicoward since Richard Nixon.

I don't think he has a chance, but the very fact that he's gotten this far-on a lark I might add-is perfectly scary.
