Just the facts as I see it

Obama: Why you should vote him in for a second term. Part 2


Now I was not going to cover Santorum, I thought he was a lost cause. But his recent surge in the polls dictates that I include him the list. So with out any further fanfare here it is.

Rick Santorum. Lets start with some quotes that this man has said.

“A lesbian woman came up to me and said, ‘why are you denying me my right?’ I said, ‘well, because it’s not a right.’ It’s a privilege that society recognizes because society sees intrinsic value to that relationship over any other relationship.”

– Rick Santorum on gay adoption, 5/3/11

So Rick I ask you, If society deemed it wrong that interracial straight couples could not not adopt, does that mean you would be fine with it. Remember it wasn’t not very long ago that interracial couples would not allowed to marry (1967). It wasn’t until very recently that interracial couples stopped having a hard time adopting kids period. So what your saying is that the rights of the minority should be left to the majority. Is this how you feel about Civil rights?

“The reason Social Security is in big trouble is we don’t have enough workers to support the retirees. A third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion, because one in three pregnancies end in abortion.”

– Rick Santorum on how abortion is responsible for Social Security’s problems, 3/29/11

There are currently 311,591,917 people in the US. So what you saying is that 103,863,972 abortions have happened. Now this is since the US started keping offical count after the Row vs Wade verdict in 1973. Now when I do the math as of right now there are approx 1.3million abortions per year in the US. Now if we assume that that number was constant since 1973 we come to a total of 52 million abortions since 1973. This is a huge number. (I had to recheck the facts because I didnt believe it) But it is still a far cry from the 103 million that you claim. you basiclly doubled the number. Now as of 2009 there were 425,000 kids in foster care and we cant find enough parents for them. What are we going to do with and extra 52 million children. Oh I know force the parents to keep them. Ummm hows that working now with the children who are born. I dont see to many of these 52 million kids working to pay into Social Security.

“Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?”

– Rick Santorum comparing his love for his mother-in-law to the love that same-sex couples share, 5/22/2008

Rick Rick Rick Rick. Yes you love your kids, you love your brother, but are you in love with them them? Do you love them the same way you love your wife?

“I don’t think it works. I think it’s harmful to women, I think it’s harmful to our society to have a society that says that sex outside of marriage is something that should be encouraged or tolerated, particularly among the young. I think it has, as we’ve seen, very harmful long-term consequences for society. So birth control to me enables that and I don’t think it’s a healthy thing for our country.”

–Saying that birth control is harmful to women, society and our country.  CN8′s “Nitebeat with Barry Nolan”, July 28, 2005. Click here to watch the video.

Wow. Birth control is harmful to our society? Your against abortion and birth control? News flash Rick your not going to stop premarital sex. Its not going to happen. Premarital sex has been happening since biblical days. Your not going to stop it. Here is what will happen. Stop all birth control and abortions will go through the roof, both illegal and legal.

“The notion that college education is a cost-effective way to help poor, low-skill, unmarried mothers with high school diplomas or GEDs move up the economic ladder is just wrong.”

–Arguing that poor, unwed mothers don’t really need college educations.  It Takes a Family, Pg. 138, July 2005.

So what your saying is that poor, low-skilled people can not climb the economic ladder with a collage degree. But I do find it interesting that you choose to highlight women in this statement.

“Many women have told me, and surveys have shown, that they find it easier, more “professionally” gratifying, and certainly more socially affirming, to work outside the home than to give up their careers to take care of their children.  Think about that for a moment…Here, we can thank the influence of radical feminism, one of the core philosophies of the village elders.”

–Blaming “radical feminism” for making women want to work outside the home.  It Takes a Family, Pg. 95, July 2005.

Well in my experence both parents need to work to provide for the family. We all are not millionares Rick.

“The elementary error of relativism becomes clear when we look at multiculturalism. Sometime in the 1980s, universities began to champion the importance of “diversity” as a central educational value.”

–Saying the goal of diversity is wrong.  It Takes a Family, Pg. 406, July 2005.

So diversity is not important. What are you saying/ We should all just conform so long as its to your standards? Should people of African American decent not be proud of their heritage? What about a Hispanic or a Jew. We should just forget that the whole Holocaust thing happened right? I mean that is part of their heritage.

“And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? I would argue yes, it does. It all comes from, I would argue, this right to privacy that doesn’t exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution, this right that was created, it was created in Griswold — Griswold was the contraceptive case — and abortion. And now we’re just extending it out. And the further you extend it out, the more you — this freedom actually intervenes and affects the family.”

–On his belief that there is no right to privacy in the U.S. Constitution. In the Griswold case, the U.S. Supreme Court found that married couples had the right to use birth control.

Associated Press interview, April 2003.

Wow. Just Wow. You don’t believe in privacy? Well you know what let me put a camera in your house. Also How the Fuck do you get the courts saying that you have the right to consensual sex at home to adultery. In your own words the right of privacy does not exist.

“Marriage is not about affirming somebody’s love for somebody else. It’s about uniting together to be open to children, to further civilization in our society.”

–Showing his romantic side.
“Fox News Sunday”, Fox News Channel, August 3, 2003.

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!? So should we outlaw marriage for those who don’t want kids. Not to mention, marriage not about love? WTF man. talk about alternitve lifestyles. So you say marriage should be like applying for a job. I’m 6’3″, no serious diseases in my family, Every male in my family has lived till at least 80 and I make good money.

Wow there was a lot on this man. You know I have to say I hope Santorum win the GOP election. You will ensure Obama gets a second term.

  1. That dude is a joke…a bad joke at that…

  2. Obama quotes:
    “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.”

    “The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, you know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred in our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society.”

    “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes ;and I see many of them in the audience here today – our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”

    “My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
    I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”

    “The notion that we would sustain that kind of effort and neglect not only making us more secure here at home, more competitive here at home, allow our economy to sink.”

    Here is my favorite:

    “You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.”

    • “My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
      I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”

      Well just a 30sec search on Google proved this to me false. Do some research before you decide to quote.

      “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.” “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes ;and I see many of them in the audience here today – our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”

      Do we really want to get into Gaffes made by presidents? If memory serves me there was a book published about all the Gaffes made by Bush. That’s a lot of Gaffes. Here are some of my Favs

      * “You work three jobs? … Uniquely American, isn’t it? I mean, that is fantastic that you’re doing that.” –to a divorced mother of three, Omaha, Nebraska, Feb. 4, 2005
      * “If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.” –Washington, D.C., Dec. 19, 2000

      So do we really wanna go there.

      “The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, you know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred in our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society.”
      This is true. You would react the same way. So I see nothing wrong with this quote.

      “You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.”
      Finally something dealing with Politics. Yes he said this and guess what he was telling the truth. Although I don’t like it, it is pushing us as a country away from using things that destroy our environment and in turn paves the way for greener technologies to take over at a cheaper rate. This is exactly what we need.
