Nephew of Rick Santorum: Vote Ron Paul!

by at . Comments

Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum catapulted himself to the top tier of the Republican presidential race this week, losing the Iowa caucus by just eight votes.

With newly-minted contender status comes increased scrutiny, however. Santorum was booed off stage in New Hampshire yesterday for comments about gay marriage.

Not everyone in his own family is convinced he's up to the task, either. This week his nephew penned an editorial for the Daily Caller in support of ... Ron Paul.

Paul and Santorum

"If you want another big-government politician who supports the status quo to run our country, you should vote for my uncle, Rick Santorum," John Garver writes.

Garver, a 19-year-old student at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, continues:

"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 not the government’s job to dictate to individuals how they must live. The Constitution was designed to protect individual liberty. My Uncle Rick cannot fathom a society in which people cooperate and work with each other freely.

When Republicans were spending so much money under President Bush, my uncle was right there along with them as a senator. The reason we have so much debt is not only because of Democrats, but also because of big-spending Republicans like my Uncle Rick.

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 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).

Another important reason I support Ron Paul is his position on foreign policy. He is the only candidate willing to bring our troops home, not only from the Middle East, but from around the world.

Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate trying to win the election for a reason other than simply winning the election. This year, I’ll vote for an honest change in our government.

I’ll vote for real hope. I’ll vote for a real leader. This year, I will vote for Ron Paul."

The candidates square off, along with frontrunner Mitt Romney, in debates Saturday night and Sunday morning in New Hampshire, which holds its primary Tuesday.

Expect fireworks.

Ron Paul will not lead us anywhere. We The People will travel beside and in front of him. The thugs that are in the midst of selling out America and her dream will be forced in the long run into their bag of dirty tricks and sorrows. And that will be their end. Our children that make up the bulk of our military will decide who's faces will adorn the next deck of cards they carry into battle. Ron Paul 2012.

We Paulbots stand firm on NOT going along with the "anything but obama campaign" that is being intensively waged. NOT THIS TIME. We are in for the long haul, all the way to Nov. We will not betray what's left of our Country, our family's and Doc Paul's over three decades of hard work.

Newt has been marched out as a distraction. Space and time filler. Sole purpose. Keep the elderly in the dark as to what really s at play. They are a major voting block. Make sure they don't get an undistorted look at Ron Paul. If you people that don't have a clue about what I'm talking about. Youtube search Nigal Farange Then watch four or five of his addresses to the EU council

Not to mention the betrayal to those American's who have invested time, energy and money into Doc Paul's campaign. That is robbery of the worst kind. Money a person can replace, Time on the other hand is not.

The fact that there is no public discourse on this, the largest and most severe attack against our foundational document. The US Constitution and Bill of rights goes unchallenged by those who took an oath to defend. Has this American looking for somewhere to vomit. Election rigging is defined by the Constitution, and those that fought, lost friends and family and died to give us. The American Dream. as an ACT OF WAR! against America, her peoples and Constitution.

It just doen't seem to matter to any of our law makers, Judiciary, Military generals, Law inforcement agency's like the F.B.I. or the C.I.A.. That their failure to act is nothing less than spitting on the graves of every soldier sent off to defend America. Where is the love for those of our children that have made it home alive, but missing legs, arms, eyes, or quadraplegic.

It would apper that "We The People" are as we speak. Seeing the final stages of a coup. That began on Jekkle Island in the years 1909-1913. And once again the orchestrators of this crominal activity can be gound lurking and sculking about the hall's of our Legislative houses, Federal Reserve and Friends, including certain former adminstration cabinet members like the Brezinski and Kissinger types that just never seem to go away. Ot also is pretty obvious that those true American's actually woeking for We The People are now so outnumbered by the Traitors. They have given up in despair on trying to preserve The USA.

To understand just how bad this insanity here in the US has gotten. They don't seem to care that this activity violates the First Amendment protection's afforded by the founding fathers,when they gave the press special considerations to protect them from an overreaching Government that would seek to keep its crimes from being known to the electorate. The press is required to inform. NOT SHAPE our elective process. The poeple that rely on them the most. The elderly who are not computer savvy or netted up, and rely on the media and press for their political decision making data.

Abigail. The answer is none of your two choices.The answer is Ron Paul. Simple fact is. Nobody else is inclined to surgically remove the cancer that is destroying America from within. If everybody promoting the ABO mantra. Were to accept the notion that The RNC are on board with the CFR / Fed / Rockefeller / Russian / Neocon / Brussels based ONE GLOBAL GOVERNMENT madness that is already falling down and about to be a fading memory known as the E.U. were to instead of whining joined US. It sure would be a lot easier to turn America around. We that are trying to save What's left of America know what we are up against. We understand the program. And since that is the case. Unless somebody throws their hat into the ring that we can believe in he or she say's I will take down the FED, Repeal the Patriot Act,undo the offensive constitutional work around's to our Constitution that were so UN-cleverly attached to N.D.A.A.
