    Default The Tea Party Darling, Rick Santorum

    Y'all remember Rick Santorum, the GOP hopeful that gave Romney a run for his money for the GOP nomination. The same Santorum that received the endosement of that organization that says they are for limited government, controlled spending etc., the Tea Party. The guy that voted and supported Medicare Plan D, No Child Left Behind, Iraq war, Decade old war in Afghanistan, Patriot Act, and helping to double the deficit creating record annual debt. The Tea Party darling that helped create the largest expansion of entitlements since LBJ, prior to Obama. TARP and Bailouts supporting Santorum. Yep, that's Rick Santorum, the guy that has already starter his campaign for the GOP nomination for 2015. He supported all of this. Santorum is absolutely right. His GOP has never been Libertarian.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    No logic to this!

    But then again, only a true traditional Conservative could support; a Balanced Budget Amendment, ending Foreign Aid to hostile governments, ending Crony Capitailsm/subsidies, downsizing the Federal government including the elimination of many Departmenst and agencies, minding our own business globally, supporting equal Liberty for Americans, securing our boarders, letting tax payers keep more of thier earned money, auditing the Fed, States Rights, abolishing all gun laws for law abiding citizens and more.


    Some people just don't want or can't handle real Freedom!

    but it is true that the biggest issue everyone has in "freedom and rights" for all of this, that and the other.
    is that everyone else will also have them. And once the "but not" list starts
