A Reagan Democrats View on Rick Santorum and why he Should be President

 

By Sean Keller

rick-santorum-republican-presidential-candidate-2012-conservative-ronald-reagan-democratsWell I am writing this article on the behest of my friend who asked me to discuss why Reagan Democrats should vote for and support Senator Rick Santorum.  First, I will take a moment to explain to you the definition of a Reagan Democrat.  “The term was coined when traditionally Democratic voters were drawn to Ronald Reagan in the early 1980s for his social conservatism and fiscal responsibility.”  Now that you understand what a Reagan Democrat is let us now begin.

As I sit here I ask myself a fundamental question of relationships that all psychiatrists ask you to make when you think you may be in a bad situation.  Are you in a safer, better situation because the person you have aligned yourself enables this feeling.  Maybe you find yourself saying, “No this person makes me feel a little less whole of who I was before I met them.”  I am not saying that Obama is a bad person or questioning his religious beliefs.  We are a free country that promotes freedom of religion.   What I am saying is, “There has to be someone who represents my blue collar construction work ethic, while upholding my social and economic conservative beliefs.”  I believe that is Rick Santorum and not Mitt Romney.

I believe that your word is your bond.  If you state your belief in something, stick to that belief. I realize that sometimes when new facts come to light we may need to change our views this is only natural.  Except that one cannot constantly change your views and hold credibility.  I feel that with Mitt Romney I cannot trust him to stick to his word because he has changed his position so many times.

Health Care For example;

Romney, June 24, 2009: “Well, that’s what we did in Massachusetts, and that is, we put together an exchange, and the president’s copying that idea. I’m glad to hear that.” Watch video

Romney, Oct. 18, 2011: “Obamacare is bad news … and if I’m president of the United States I will repeal it.” Transcript and Video

I could write an article on Romney’s Political gaffs but I will use only one too illustrate my point.

Not only is your word your bond, in order to win the Presidency you need to energize your base and connect with the voter. This is something that Romney continues to struggle to do.  When I was watching him give his victory speech in Michigan last night I had the feeling that he was a car salesman trying to sell me on something I know I already want. Mitt we understand your views but we do not understand you. I keep asking myself who is this guy really?

When Rick gave his speech in Iowa stating about his grandfather, “And all I could do — eye level — was look at his hands. They were enormous hands. And all I could think was those hands dug freedom for me.”

I looked down at my calloused hands from doing construction and thought of my father who just passed away last year and those hard callused hands he had.  Not just from working on the railways of the light rail transit of Pittsburgh, but those who also fought as a Navy Seal. He gave up his youth to give me, and so many others the freedoms we take for granted. Rick touched something so very personal and deep within my core.  For the first time I thought, wow a candidate that I can relate to on at least some level.

Not only does he stir up my deep convictions he also cherishes my views of balancing the budget and cutting taxes. No one wants to talk about cutting programs for the poor and needy, but it is an issue that needs to be addressed. I am not against welfare or helping others who have lost their jobs and need to collect unemployment. What I am against is Americans who abuse the system and make it a way of life.  Since I do construction in a State that has bad winters I collect unemployment when I am laid off due to lack of work because of inclement weather.  But I do not make it a way of life it is something I do so that I can get through 3 months of inclement weather then I go back to work.  Rick’s work on the Welfare Reform act of 1996 was a great piece of legislation that helped many Americans escape the poverty line and enter back into the workforce.

In addition to that he also championed reform entitlement programs to cut spending.  We blue collar workers do hard manual labor that requires a disciplined work effort.  Rick champions these ideas.  My only concern is that Rick is now supporting the right to work effort, which I feel is a bad choice.  Since I am in the Labor Union I feel that it is imperative that we be able to negotiate for better wages and health care.  The Right to Work Law takes away these collective bargaining rights.  Now I can understand that policeman, teachers and local officials should not be able to go on strike and paralyze a city. Here is what Santorum said about the Right to Work Law in a Debate on September 22nd 2011. Those of us who do construction work on highways; bridges and sewer systems should have the right to collectively bargain.  I would only hope Rick would change his views on this one issue and go back to his roots of supporting the Union on this one issue.

Finally, the issue that has recently been hurting Santorum is his hard line religious views, and the topic of contraception (Santorum never said he wanted to ban birth control).  The majority of Americans feel that the use of contraception is not morally wrong. I feel that most women should have the right to use contraception if they so choose.  I understand that it is against the Catholic faith to use contraception, but not everyone that works for the Catholic hospitals, schools and churches are Catholic.  The law does not force people to use contraception; it only makes it an available choice for women.  But once again I commend Rick for staying true to his beliefs and doing what he feels is right.  Once again I say we know who Rick is unlike, Mitt.  Watch Rick Santorum’s interview on Meet the Press with David Gregory on the topic of contraception.

In conclusion, if you are a Reagan Democrat trying to make a choice for a President that upholds your values and gets you motivated to champion your fiscal and social conservative values Rick Santorum is the obvious choice.  I urge any Reagan Democrat who is looking for an alternative to Obama to take a good look at Rick Santorum and his views.  Furthermore, for those Republicans who are on the fence, just ask yourself, “Can Mitt Romney win the votes of moderate democrats and independents?” Take a look at a head to head comparison of Romney’s and Santorum’s election records.

If you truly want to vote President Obama out of office, you are going to need someone to win over independents and Reagan Democrats.  No Republican can win the Presidency without these votes.  So think long and hard about that and make the obvious choice for Rick Santorum. There is a lot more I would like to talk about but I will save it for another time.  I hope that those that read this keep an open mind.  Remember this is only my opinion.

Help Rick Santorum send Barack Obama packing!

On fiscal conservatism

Rick Santorum, one of the most fiscally conservative as rated by the National Taxpayers Union:

Excerpt:

NTU’s scoring paints a radically different picture of Santorum’s 12-year tenure in the Senate (1995 through 2006) than one would glean from the rhetoric of the Romney campaign.  Fifty senators served throughout Santorum’s two terms:  25 Republicans, 24 Democrats, and 1 Republican/Independent.  On a 4-point scale (awarding 4 for an A, 3.3 for a B+, 3 for a B, 2.7 for a B-, etc.), those 50 senators’ collective grade point average (GPA) across the 12 years was 1.69 — which amounts to a C-.  Meanwhile, Santorum’s GPA was 3.66 — or an A-.  Santorum’s GPA placed him in the top 10 percent of senators, as he ranked 5th out of 50.

Across the 12 years in question, only 6 of the 50 senators got A’s in more than half the years.  Santorum was one of them.  He was also one of only 7 senators who never got less than a B.  (Jim Talent served only during Santorum’s final four years, but he always got less than a B, earning a B- every year and a GPA of 2.7.)  Moreover, while much of the Republican party lost its fiscal footing after George W. Bush took office — although it would be erroneous to say that the Republicans were nearly as profligate as the Democrats — Santorum was the only senator who got A’s in every year of Bush’s first term.  None of the other 49 senators could match Santorum’s 4.0 GPA over that span.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/was-santorum-senate-spendthrift_629850.html

Excerpt:

Citizens Against Government Waste told us that Santorum left the Senate in 2006 with a lifetime rating of 80 percent with the anti-earmarks organization, ranking him in the top 25 percent of Senate Republicans. That put Santorum in CAGW’s “Taxpayer Hero” category.

And the fiscally conservative National Taxpayers Union provides a flattering big-picture assessment of Santorum’s voting record on fiscal issues. The NTU looks at legislators’ votes on everything from taxes to spending to debt regulation and fiscal policy in general and then grades them. You can see all of the Republican candidates’ scores here. NTU doesn’t provide a composite score for legislators, but in yearly grades issued during Santorum’s Senate years, NTU gave him an “A” grade seven times, a “B+” three times and a “B” twice. He also got Bs in his last three years in the House (as far back as the NTU ratings go). Santorum got better grades than most of his fellow Republicans during his 12 years as a senator.

“Some would say that would average closer to an A- grade, while others would say it’s closer to a B+,” Pete Sepp, executive vice president of NTU told us in an email. “We tend to choose the side of caution when speaking about any lawmaker’s average, because it’s also important to examine the individual parts of the overall record.”

– Robert Farley http://factcheck.org/2012/02/romney-vs-santorum-a-misleading-contrast/#.Tz7AuB5cytM.facebookExcerpt

One source is Club for Growth, who give excellent summaries of where candidate stand and how they acted on economic and fiscal issues. Key points on Santorum:

Santorum has consistently supported broad-based tax cuts and opposed tax increases either by sponsoring key legislation or by casting votes on relevant bills.  Some high profile votes include:

  • Voted NO on the Clinton tax hike in 1993
  • Voted YES on the capital gains tax cut in 1997
  • Voted NO on a cigarette tax hike in 1998
  • Voted YES on repeal of the Alternative Minimum Tax in 1999
  • Voted YES on the 2001 Bush tax cuts
  • Voted YES to repeal the Death Tax in 2002
  • Voted YES to the 2003 Bush tax cuts
  • Voted YES to extend the Bush tax cuts in 2006

Here are his ratings from when he was in Congress:

American Conservative Union — 88%

National Right to Life Committee — 100%

Americans for Tax Reform — 95%

National Tax Limitation Committee — 92%

U.S. Chamber of Commerce — 88%

League of Private Property Voters — 94%

http://www.redstate.com/wosg/2012/01/06/rick-santorum-yes-he-is-a-true-conservative/

Here is what John Hawkins/a professional blogger who runs Right Wing News had to say of Santorum’s fiscal plan:cutting $5 trillion of federal spending within 5 years, freezing spending levels for 5 years, a Balanced Budget Amendment that caps spending at 18% of GDP, implementing Paul Ryan’s Medicare reforms, reforming Social Security, freezing the pay of non-defense workers for 4 years, and eliminating the funding for Obamacare. That is an agenda that should get the blood pumping for fiscal hawks who’ve been disappointed in the conservative leadership from D.C. over the last few years.Based on: http://www.ricksantorum.com/spending-cuts-and-entitlements-reform

John Hawkins went on to say:Romney supported the McCain-Kennedy amnesty, TARP, Cap and Trade, and Obamacare was based on Romneycare. Those are huge issues that go right off the table if Mitt becomes the nominee. Santorum, on the other hand, voted against McCain-Kennedy, has an A- grade from NumbersUSA on illegal immigration, opposed TARP, voted against Cap and Trade, and opposed Obamacare. Being on the right side of those elephantine issues may be the difference between victory and defeat in 2012 and Santorum has credibility there, while Romney doesn’t.

The numbers reveal the TRUE conservative and here’s the stats to prove it:

Uh Oh! Newt Gingrich Co-Sponsored a Bill with Pelosi That Funded Planned Parenthood?

 

By Brian Hughes

I wrote this Blog in hopes to stop the Newt supporters from attacking Santorum’s vote for Title X. It’s counterproductive in our main objective, which is to win the GOP nomination over Mitt Romney and to send Barack Obama packing.

As the GOP race for the Republican nomination continues on, we have seen several changes in the tides. We are now left with only four Candidates, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul. It has definitely been a roller coaster watching the surge’s and declines. We have seen Rick Santorum surge in Iowa at just the right time to take away a victory from front runner Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney walked away with a victory in New Hampshire and Florida. After a spectacular debate performance from Newt Gingrich when he flattened King for asking about his ex-wife’s story of them agreeing to have an open marriage, he surged and won South Carolina. Santorum amazingly swept three States in one night, Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado giving him a tremendous momentum to not only gain National favor but also generated record breaking numbers for the campaign’s fundraising.

Now we are approaching another big Tuesday, Arizona and Michigan. As a result of Senator Santorum’s success and popularity he has become the brunt of attacks. After the debate on CNN in Arizona, Santorum has been getting attacks about his vote for Title X which gave funding to planned parenthood. Rick defended his vote and explained to the viewers that it was a very large bill that had funding for family planning services attached to it. He expressed again that he would work to defund planned parenthood if elected.

I would like to bring to the attention of all the Newt Gingrich supporters that are smearing Santorum for his vote for Title X.

Newt Gingrich co-sponsored a bill with Nancy Pelosi named the Global Warming Prevention Act of 1989, and in this bill over $3.3 Billion were appropriated to planned parenthood for voluntary abortions in a five year span which also included funds for the U.N. Population Fund. Below is the exact language of TITLE XI–WORLD POPULATION GROWTHSEC. 1102. FAMILY PLANNING SERVICES.

SEC. 1102. FAMILY PLANNING SERVICES.

(a) POLICY- It is the policy of the United States that family planning services should be made available to all persons requesting them.

(b) AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS- There are authorized to be appropriated a minimum of $500,000,000 for fiscal year 1991, $540,000,000 for fiscal year 1992, and $580,000,000 for each of fiscal years 1993, 1994, and 1995 for family planning services provided under authorized programs. Of the funds appropriated, not less than 16 percent, or $60,000,000, whichever is less, shall be available annually for the United Nations Population Fund.

I really hope this can stop all the mud slinging coming from Newt Gingrich supporters that feel it’s necessary to tear down Santorum. All four Candidates are Republicans but it’s obvious that two of them are on the Conservative side of the aisle and the other two are on the liberal side of the aisle. Or in Ron Paul’s case Liberalterian.

It’s now a level playing field between Newt and Santorum on this issue. Yes Newt cosponsored a bill with Pelosi that funded Planned Parenthood but he has since then had a conversion as he states and has a good pro-life voting record. He also states that he will defund Planned Parenthood if elected. Yes Santorum voted for Title X that funded Planned Parenthood but he counter balanced that by supporting Title XX and has a consistent pro-life record. He also has stated that he would defund Planned Parenthood if elected.

Both camps have the same objective, to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney and of course Barack Obama. We are wasting so much time and energy attacking each other that could be better used going after Romney and Obama. Trust me when I say if Newt Gingrich gets the nomination I will support him but in the mean time I will continue to support my first choice Rick Santorum.

Select One: Conservative or Moderate?

 

By Jesse Biter

rick-santorum-republican-presidential-candidate-2012-jesse-biterFor almost a year now, I have been a strong supporter of Rick Santorum’s campaign for President and for much of that time, the liberal media has attempted to discredit and even ignore his campaign. Since his victory in Iowa and even more recently his three State sweep earlier this month, Rick Santorum has surged into contention and is now leading in polls across the country. This is great news for his campaign and more importantly, for the country.

I firmly believe that Rick Santorum is exactly who we need in the White House. He is the proven fiscal and social conservative in the race and he understands that in order to have a strong country, we must have strong families. I personally know Rick Santorum and can vouch for his character and desire to help turn America away from the liberal, big-spending future that Obama has led us towards and instead, lead America towards a future of less government, more freedom and a restoration of prosperity.

The 4th quarter is approaching and we need all the resources we can gather to help counter the establishment & media’s preference in this race. Are you willing to help a proven Conservative reach the White House? Please click here to donate $10, $25, or $100 (or whatever you can comfortably) to Rick Santorum’s campaign for President.

Thank you for your time & willingness to be a Republican voice in your community,

Jesse Biter
Florida Chair, Rick Santorum for President

Comparing Santorum’s and Romney’s Election Records Show Santorum has the Best Chance to Defeat Obama

 

By Brian Hughes

By comparison of Santorum’s and Romney’s election record it becomes clearly obvious that Santorum has a better chance at defeating Democratic incumbent President Barack Obama. While Rick Santorum has 2 wins against Democratic incumbents including 2 re-elections and 1 loss, Mitt Romney only has 1 win against a Democratic incumbent with no re-elections and 2 losses. Santorum is the best choice hands down for the Republican nomination to go up against Obama with a record of 4 wins to 1 loss in comparison to Romney’s 1 win to 2 losses.

rick-santorum-republican-presidential-candidate-2012-election-record-comparison

In 1990, at age 32, Santorum was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives to represent Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, located in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh. He scored a significant upset in the heavily Democratic district, defeating seven-term Democratic incumbent Doug Walgren by a 51%-49% margin. Although the 18th District was redrawn for the 1992 elections, and the new district had a 3:1 ratio of registered Democrats to Republicans, Santorum still won re-election with 61% of the vote.

Santorum served in the United States Senate representing Pennsylvania from 1995 to 2007. From 2001 until 2007, he was the Senate’s third-ranking Republican. He was first elected to the Senate during the 1994 Republican takeover, narrowly defeating incumbent Democrat Harris Wofford 49% to 47%. He was re-elected in 2000, defeating U.S. Congressman Ron Klink by a 52%-46% margin.

Romney decided to take on longtime incumbent Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy. In the November general election, despite a disastrous showing for Democrats overall, Kennedy won the election with 58 percent of the vote to Romney’s 41 percent, the smallest margin in Kennedy’s eight re-election campaigns for the Senate.

Romney was sworn in as the 70th governor of Massachusetts on January 2, 2003. Both houses of the Massachusetts state legislature held large Democratic majorities. Midway through his term, Romney decided that he wanted to stage a full-time run for president, and on December 14, 2005, Romney announced that he would not seek re-election for a second term as governor.

Mitt Romney lost to John McCain for the Republican Nomination in the 2008 Presidential race.

Based on his Election Record Rick Santorum should get the MVP “Most Valuable Politician”

 

By Brian Hughes

Based on his Election Record Rick Santorum should get the MVP “Most Valuable Politician”. Santorum’s election record should be something of importance to the GOP since the goal is to win against incumbent Democratic president Barrack Obama. The GOP has obviously chosen Mitt Romney to be there nominee if he can make it. When you look at Romney’s election record it doesn’t really look like he’ll stand much of a chance against Obama. let’s take a look at a comparison of the two Republican Candidates election records and vote who you think would be more likely to defeat president Obama.

Conception or Implantation, Which one is it Newt?

 

By Brian Hughes

At first glance Newt Gingrich comes off like he is Pro-Life but when looked at closer you find something quite disturbing. There’s an article on CNSNews.com talking about Newt’s interview with ABC News’s Jake Tapper on Friday December 2nd. In this interview former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said he believes life does not start at conception but at “implantation and successful implantation” because if you say life begins at conception “you’re going to open up an extraordinary range of very difficult questions.”

Rep. Bachmann put out a statement on Friday, expressing disagreement with what Gingrich had told ABC News.

“Newt Gingrich stated today that life begins at implantation not at conception,” said Bachmann. “But those who are truly involved in the life issue know that life begins at conception. Additionally, the former speaker’s description of the life issue as ‘practical’ is a rejection of the most sacred principle that each and every life has value, a principle recognized by our founders in the Declaration of Independence of the most basic right with which every human is endowed. This along with his inconsistent record on life is just one more indication that Newt is not dedicated to protecting the lives of the unborn and doesn’t share the most basic of conservative principles.”

One of the questions that arise is, “Does Newt Gingrich support “The Morning After Pill” also known as the “Plan B Pill”? This pill aborts a pregnancy, if taken before implantation.

It seems that Newt Gingrich cannot make up his mind on this issue. At the Thanksgiving Family Forum Dr. Frank Luntz asked Newt the same question, “When do you believe life begins?” Newt responded, “I believe life starts at conception”.

Three weeks later on ABC News Mr. Gingrich changed his answer to “I believe life starts at implantation and successful implantation”. The next day Gingrich posted a statement on his campaign website saying he does believe “human life begins at conception”.

Gingrich’s campaign also posted a questionnaire he submitted to the National Right to Life Committee on Nov. 23 in which he stated that he believes abortions should be legal in cases of rape and incest.

In an interview that was conducted in Iowa on Friday and posted on the website of ABC News, Tapper asked Gingrich directly when he thinks human life begins.

“Abortion is a big issue here in Iowa among conservative Republican voters and Rick Santorum has said you are inconsistent,” Tapper told Gingrich. “The big argument here is that you have supported in the past embryonic stem cell research and you made a comment about how these fertilized eggs, these embryos are not yet ‘pre-human’ because they have not been implanted. This has upset conservatives in this state who worry you don’t see these fertilized eggs as human life. When do you think human life begins?”

Gingrich responded: “Well, I think the question of being implanted is a very big question. My friends who have ideological positions that sound good don’t then follow through the logic of: ‘So how many additional potential lives are they talking about? What are they going to do as a practical matter to make this real?

These inconsistencies should be taken into consideration before we elect another politician that will say one thing and do another. After having three and half years of being lied to, we need to elect someone that we can trust will do what he says and has the record to prove it.

senator-rick-santorum-for-president-2012That is why I support Senator Rick Santorum for President. He is consistent in what he says and has a track record to prove it. Even if you don’t agree with something he says at least you know he won’t change his mind just to get a vote. That is integrity and good character, which are two things our next President needs to have.

Rick Santorum is a champion of faith, family and life. You can trust Santorum because he does what he says and has the record to prove it.
