Santorum: Vote for Ron Paul if You Want Limited Government
Yes, Santorum really believes he‚Äôs a conservative ‚ÄĒ or at least he wants voters to believe it.
The problem, of course, is that his record belies his claim to conservatism, a point one of his rivals, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, has made repeatedly during the campaign. Paul, also vying for the mantle of ‚Äúthe conservative alternative to Romney,‚ÄĚ called Santorum a ‚Äúfake‚ÄĚ conservative both in a campaign ad and in person during one of the debates. He pointed to numerous Senate votes in which Santorum had acted in ways that violated the Constitution, the idea of limited government, and just plain good sense.
Reminding Santorum that his record doesn‚Äôt match his rhetoric obviously gets under his skin. At a recent campaign appearance, someone in the crowd shouted to the former Senator as he passed by: ‚ÄúExplain why you voted for No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, and five debt ceiling increases. What‚Äôs...

Jim, your deep concern over future retired millionaire Obama's health insurance or pension is touching. I might sob.
Here's something for you to chew on. If all the money that has been extracted from taxpayers for the SS retiremet "fund" had been invested in merely conservative bunch of funds, there would be no threat to Social Security now. But no, it was shoveled down whatever rathole of spending they wanted instead. And you call Wall St crooked? Hilarious.
Of course you would say Republicans want to get rid of SS. It's standard leftist BS. Bush wanted to allow people to invest a whole 2% of their own SS money privately, and you couldn't hear yourself think for all the reactionary Democrat howling about taking away SS, when it was doing the opposite, giving back some of what belonged to the people. But the left wing nuts don't want anyone messing with what they have made into their personal slush fund, do they?
Romney will be happy to piggy-back his polygamy on Obama's same-sex marriage initiative. Also, he and Ann will share their Planet Romney bed with his other wives. Like Barack refusing to release his actual US birth certificate (or lack thereof), when will Mitt disclose his latest wedding photo with all his wives?
retirement, Mike? You mean without health insurance or pension? The Republicans at least in my state even want to get rid of Social Security, and depend on the crooks and Wall Street to provide a financial Nirvana for everyone, especially the financial backers that is. No, Obama with his passing of the universal health care plan that originated with the Republicans and the bailout of the auto industry, was brilliant and and made the Reactionary Party howl.
It's a pity that Bumbling Enron Bush wasn't even elected the first time and we would have been better off. Admittedly, Mitt Romney of those Republican still in the race, is probably the best choice of the Republicans. I suppose after November 4 or whenever the final election is, we can all relax again and get back to more important items such as those that have a religious character. The Believer and Politics

To listen to all the ones who say this or that only helps Obama, it would appear anything anyone else does will help him. Of course the motive is to discourage. In reality Obama needs all the help he can get. We have economic stagnation, pandering to earth worshippers, religious hypocrisy, bowing to dictators, flat out lying, lawmaking, takeover of banks, auto industry, healthcare, trying to force people to buy stuff they don't want, etc. The poor man is so far in over his head, that retirement is the only option sensible people will help him with.
‚Äú...someone in the crowd shouted to the former Senator as he passed by: ‚ÄúExplain why you voted for No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, and five debt ceiling increases. What‚Äôs ‚Äėlimited government‚Äô about that?‚ÄĚ Santorum, visibly perturbed by this line of questioning, turned to the man and shot back: ‚ÄúVote for Ron Paul. That‚Äôs what you should do.‚ÄĚ
The story is that Santorum is not a conservative; he is like all the other Republican candidates, a CINO Conservative In Name Only. But he did say one honest thing... ‚ÄúVote for Ron Paul. That‚Äôs what you should do.‚ÄĚ
Yes,Rick Santorum, is a conservative and alter conservative Catholic no doubt one of those Ultra-Traditionalist Catholic. according to the Wikipedia article about him, he is a member of the Opus Dei group, and Ian Paisley had some excellent comments about that organization--The Rising Spectre of Opus Dei.
