Santorum is right choice

This presidential election season is one of the most, if not the most, crucial in our history. Barack Obama’s record of high taxes; massive spending; record-high debt; high unemployment; and anti-American behavior and oratory around the globe speaks for itself – and that’s knowing he will seek another term. A second term will be more catastrophic than the first.

We hear much talk about “transforming Washington.” We have two kind yet strong conservative and principled candidates – not perfect and flawless, but conservative, fundamentally conservative and principled candidates from which to choose. They have made considerable positive changes in Washington while adhering to their core convictions: Rick Santorum, by far the best candidate, and Newt Gingrich. I ask you to please join me in voting for Santorum in the Republican primary.

We know where Santorum stands. We know that he will neither cave nor sell us out, and this is key. Other countries and leaders will know that if they think of harming Americans or Americans’ way of life, a significant emotional event will be forthcoming.

Santorum does not have to prove one wrong to show that he is right. A perfect example of this was displayed at New England College when an advocate of same-sex marriage questioned him and, in my view, was seeking drama. Santorum discussed the matter, asked questions and instructed the audience, namely the questioner, how to rationally present an idea. Our current president cannot even speak to sixth-grade pupils without teleprompters, and here we have a presidential candidate explaining to college students who disagree with him how to present a reasoned plan for change.

Word limits prohibit further reasons to rally around this great American. Please vote for this principled man with a blue-collar, hard-working upbringing who will win battleground states in November and, come 2013, bring about change in Washington and put Americans back to work while re-establishing American credibility and respect worldwide.
