Rick Santorum has been my personal punching bag for the last month or so. I can’t get over how much a douche that man is, in fact he’s so bad members of his own family are endorsing competitors:
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 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).
It’s no secret that I don’t like Romney or any other Republican candidate besides Ron Paul but Rick Santorum holds a special place on my list of people I strongly dislike. Somehow he’s managed to advocate war and hatred of gays more than even Michelle Bachmann, a feat that shouldn’t be matched. Either way when you can’t even get your own family members to endorse you you’ve got major problems.
Ron Paul may not have won Iowa but I think winning Santorum’s family member is a pretty good consolation prize.
