Tomorrow is primary election day in Michigan, and the stakes are high. At issue is nothing less than the future of our country.
“What!” you say, “Politicians are all the same! Looking out for themselves, raising taxes for the little guy, while padding their own nests! Standing there, a figurehead president, stymied by a deadbeat Congress, effecting whatever little change he can….”
Not this time. This time, at stake is America As We Have Known It. America as the Founding Fathers envisioned it.
If you read my blog, you know that over here, we’re not even considering reelecting Mr. Obama. The whole scandal of urging the approval of killing babies born in Chicago in a failed abortion attempt is beyond thinkable; add to that the usurpation of individual rights, the disdain for people of faith, the sincere apologies to Afghanistan while ignoring the Catholics’ Constitutional rights, the sixteen vacations—well, no, he’s not my guy.
There remain four candidates, each of whom deserves consideration. If a candidate’s attitude toward the Constitutional right to life is paramount (and it should be), all four Republicans are still in the running.
But Ron Paul… Well, his non-interventionist foreign policy is just too extreme to be believable.
And Newt Gingrich… There’s a guy with plenty of Washington experience; but there’s too much ego there, too. There’s too much philandering in his past (Oh, I know, he’s changed….). Too much Freddie Mac. Too much moon base.
Mitt Romney? Well, I’m just not sure. His recent speech before the Detroit Economic Club (“I love Michigan! The trees are just the right height!” “And cars! I love cars!”) demonstrates his eagerness to woo a crowd, but stops short of demonstrating believability. Despite his protestations to the contrary, his RomneyCare apparently did, in fact, require Catholic hospitals in Massachusetts to do exactly what the Obama Administration is requiring now: Provide insurance covering abortion, sterilization and abortifacient drugs, all of which are morally repugnant to the Catholic Church.
Then there’s Rick Santorum. Known for his social conservatism, Santorum has a 100% pro-life voting record. His vision for America is to restore America’s greatness by fighting for faith, family and freedom. He doesn’t get tongue-tied when asked a question, because he always tells the truth—not what he thinks the pollsters want to hear.
Rick Santorum is committed to celebrating the family by reviving our economy and creating jobs in Americaagain with a smarter and simpler tax code. Santorum will roll back job-killing regulations, force the federal government to shrink and live within its means by passing a Balanced Budget Amendment and reinvigorate our domestic manufacturing and energy potential.
Here in Michigan, I’ll be heading to the polls in the morning to cast my vote for Rick Santorum. I hope to be able to do that once again in November, at that time voting for Santorum as President of theUnited States.
