Santorum still wants an intrusive and activist gvt

I found CBS Evening News reporting on “front runner” Rick Santorum to be highly hilarious. And Santorum’s “message” to be even more hilarious still. The dude sounded exactly like a two year old throwing a religious tantrum. And this is a guy who really wants to be the next POTUS? Where does one begin really? Obama is some kind of “elitist.” Well, he is the President… That he is operating on some kind of “false theology.” I wouldn’t know just how more false a theology could be when a religious guy trades on his beliefs to attain secular power. It utterly sounded like a case of projection. As for Santorum, elitism is in how you act. Santorum should look in the mirror for the elitist.

It was reported that Santorum appeals to religious voters because of his stance on “social issues.” Well now, all that means is that Santorum like the religious base is all for kicking the 1st amendment to the curb and arguing that we can have an activist government all for regulating people’s lives and even what they should or should not believe in. If the “conservative” argument was really about limiting gvt, we wouldn’t be hearing all about a religious basis behind social engineering. Government shouldn’t be involved in religious issues. And trying to claim something as “conservative” that calls for an intrusive government to further a personal or collectivist agenda (in this case, religious voters); is what is truly a false ideology. Santorum is opposed to this nation being “more dependent” on the federal government while demanding that such a dependency on the federal system can definitely work for religious groups and business interests.

Bottom line: It wouldn’t do for a Democrat to be in charge of the White House.

If you want an over-regulating government, best ask that a Republican put one together.

I can just see what Jon Stewart would have to say about that. Rick Santorum demonstrating some truly childish behavior in public and actually gaining in the polls (Michigan) ahead of Romney, also says a lot about the people he wants to vote for him. He may be billed as the Romney alternative, uh what? All I hear from most of these guys running as the GOP contenders for the Oval Office is simply variations on the same big government theme. Big government: Republican style. The only real alternative to the religious activists: Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich; is Ron Paul. And he doesn’t even enter the news media radar.

Speaking of, I have two Ron Paul fervent believers for neighbors. I think that the only reason I found this out, is because they decided to swing by and check out my political temperature. They deemed Ron Paul to be the “perfect constitutionalist.” Maybe. But, that can’t be said about the GOP candidates whom the news media spends the most time reporting on.

Here is something rather interesting that was reported on the news: Cell phone users generally check their phones 34 times a day. If I heard that right. But a certain type of cell phone user (with a new type of psychotic label that I did not catchLOL!) are prepared to check their phones every 10 minutes! And further, are actually afraid of losing their phones. What made it even more interesting? A discussion (KREM 2 News) of a new “dating app.” Seriously, this “phone addiction” must have a real basis in reality if new apps are being advertised (including what gets reported on the news) on a daily basis. Yeah, I guess I’d be checking the ol’ smart phone every 10 minutes and afraid I’d lose it along with all that important information that it carries (via apps). Thanks be that I only have a basic cell phone.
