Freepers try to rationalize their "liberty except in the bedroom" stance. The conclusion they come to: it's not hypocritical it's awesome, but stop telling anyone about it!
jwalsh07 lays out the usual case - you can't have Freedom till you force people to act correctly!
You don’t seem to understand that you can not separate the two. Great Society social programs amplified by Obama have record numbers of people getting food stamps. Record numbers of babies are being born out of wedlock. The biggest predictor of using food stamps is being born out of wedlock. What part of this don’t you get?????????????????Cicero knows the only honest politician is one who agrees with him:
If you ask whether social or economic issues are more important, then people who are feeling the pain or are out of jobs will probably say economic.UnbelievingScumOnTheOtherSide knows small government is God's reward for proper government control of sex!
After all, “social issues” is kind of a vague term.
But if you ask them whether they would vote for a baby killer who wants to train kids in kindgarten to be gay, their response might be different.
Or if you ask them whether they would want to vote for an honest politician who understands the difference between right and wrong, or a lying crook who could care less, they’d probably choose the first. Well, that’s pretty much what “social issues” means.
Politicians who don’t give a damn how many babies are killed are unlikely to be very trustworthy on other issues, including economic issues. They may talk the talk, but how can you trust someone without any moral values?
Here is the deal: America gets on the right side of God on some things, or God gives you over to socialist economy wreckers.jersey117 thinks social issues are important, but Obama is SO EVIL, we need to make an exception just this once.
We find it insulting that some want to abandon social issues.RitaOK also thinks Santorum should be hiding his crazy agenda till he gets elected!
We shouldn't abandon them but we also shouldn't put them at the top of the priority list this particular election.
This isn't your average Democrat/Republican election. Obama isn't a democrat. He's an evil radical hell bent on changing this country like nothing we've ever seen. His first three years are Exhibit A. Our children and grandchildren will never know what was our America if he gets a second term. It was the independents who put obama over the top last election. Do you honestly thing we can win without them? Let's get rid of obama and then focus our attention on our agenda.
I share the views of Rick Santorum to every crossed “t”."smarmy them?"
I would not run on those views, understanding that the indoctrinated American voter does NOT share those views, but I would try to govern with those views where I could, where I might be able to influence direction, or, a redirection.
Why give away your location? I just don’t get it. No experienced pol’ would do that.
The only possible reason I can come up with is that Rick is simply working over the conservative electorate to smarmy them.
