Santorum supporters: come out come out wherever you are

Who is supporting Rick Santorum's presidential aspirations? No one that I know admits to it, and contrary to popular belief, I do know republicans.



Are Santorum supporters unaware of the following? I'm sorry, I have to draw a line in the sand over this man. I truly do not understand how anyone could support him.

1. Santorum has a completely antiquated view of women and their place in the world. He thinks they should be stay at home moms instead of making their own choices about what works best for their families. For an awesome OpEd piece on this, go here.

2. In the same vein, he does not believe women should be making their own choices about their bodies.

3. Santorum is anti-abortion, but also does not approve of funding for programs to help impoverished single mothers. Who does he think should pay for the children mothers can't afford to have?

4.  He believes contraception is "a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be." Did you guys get that? He is against birth control.

5. Santorum is disgustingly and hatefully anti-gay. How can a person with so much hate in their heart consider themselves a Christian, or be considered by people as a good leader?

6. He voted against raising the minimum wage eight times, but he did vote for his own raise. Thanks for putting yourself in your constituents' shoes, Ricky.

7. He believes intelligent design should be taught in schools as an alternative to evolution. There is no MFing alternative to evolution! It's a fact!

8. When Pennsylvanians voted him out of his Senate seat, he lost by 18 points, the biggest loss for a sitting U.S. Senator since 1980. Should you really be supporting someone who was so resolutely roundhouse kicked in the face by his own constituents?

I'm stopping there, even though I could go on. The very mention of his name makes my blood boil and then I can't articulate well, which is not very good when one is writing a blog post.

Santorum is scary - he wants to get into the nitty gritty of every citizen's life and dictate - by law - what they can and can't do. Do you want him in your bed? He wants to place government control on very individual and personal issues and impose his extremism onto the population of the United States. He wants to take away choice. Women, he wants to put you back 50 years or more.

Separation of church and state exists for a reason - have people stopped thinking about why this country was founded? When a faith based candidate wants to legislate his beliefs, that goes away.

In these uncertain economic times, I do not want a candidate for either party that's more interested in what I do with my uterus than in creating sustainable jobs and improving the lives of Americans where it counts - in the schools, in the courts, on the streets and in the headquarters of companies based here.

Republicans, how the hell is Santorum your front runner? What are you thinking?
The immediate backlash against Komen pulling funding from Planned Parenthood shows what can happen when people stand together and say I don't think so. Please, stand with me and say I don't think so to Rick Santorum.

Deliver me,

SMD

  1. On Twitter- Philly burbs- As primary turnouts drop- GOP enthusiasm is questioned!
    That is how he is getting his poll ratings.
    The whole birth control,etc is right up the GOP's alley to get the previously democratic
    Catholic votes. The Catholics are using the birth control thing to divert our attentions from their molestations of our children and those who enabled it. Good God- 2012 is Karma
    year- what you have put out you will get back.
    Barack will be our President for another 4 years. Godspeed to him!!!!
    Love, your MOMMA
    PS I really need you to help me put pictures on pinterest!
    Carpe Diem.
