"Sen. Rand Paul Exposes Rick Santorum: The Big Government Credentials of Rick Santorum



The only two anti Big Government Presidential Candidates in the Republican Party, are Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman. Everyone else believes in some form of Big Government, Rick Santorum perfect example of that. Sen. Santorum voted to double the size of the US Department of Education. And voted for the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit in 2003, Medicare Advantage, where we've borrowed 500B$ to pay for it. Sen. Santorum left Congress in 2007 after he lost by a landslide to Bob Casey for reelection. But still Sen. Santorum voted for hundreds of billions of dollars all borrowed. To pay for the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Sen. Santorum voted for the Patriot Act and Indefinite Detention. He supports a Constitutional Amendment to outlaw from the Federal Level abortion and Same Sex Marriage. Rick Santorum's Big Government credentials are very solid, if your a Progressive or a Neoconservative. There are things about Sen. Santorum to like, if your a Liberal like myself. Except for Santorum's honesty, character and his family, I do like the guy personally. But except for Sen. Santorum's approach to dealing with poverty and reforming the Safety Net. There's nothing I like about Sen. Santorum but in a sense I'm glad he's doing as well as he's doing in Iowa right now. And he and Rep. Paul tonight have prevented a cakewalk for Mitt Romney aka Flip Flopper. To winning the Republican Nomination for President and for that I congratulate him for that.

What Sen. Rand Paul is doing I believe is positioning himself for 2016, if he does not run for Reelection to Senate. And decides to run for President himself or not. Assuming President Obama is reelected which is not a safe assumption but looking at what he may face in the General Election. Because for one reason the Republican Party will at least be somewhat divided going into to September. Because whether you like and respect Sen. Paul's father or not and I do respect both Ron and Rand paul. Ron Paul will not be elected President of the United States at any point. The Republican Party won't allow that, the establishment doesn't see him as electable against the President. And Religious and Neoconservatives doesn't like him period except on Economic Policy. So he won't get the Republican Nomination, Mitt Romney probably will but if not him. Then who and thats what these Republican Primary's are about right now. And assuming its not Ron Paul, what I believe his son Rand is doing right now. Is positioning himself around his father, for a possible run for President in 2016 or 2020. And trying to get the Ron Paul Base behind him.

Rick Santorum is the ultimate Big Government Republican, I think only Michelle Bachmann is scarier when it comes to Big Government Republicanism. With her support for banning pornography in America and that women should behave men and be 2nd to them. And thats what Sen. Paul was pointing out tonight about Santorum his Big Government credentials.
