Rick Santorum: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid


I recently heard something about Rick Santorum hating on Libertarian ideals (not that I'm a huge fan of all libertarian ideas, but I agree with many and was curious which Santorum disagreed with).
Anyway, I wanted to see if this was true and did a search on YouTube for some proof.

What I found was far more frightening than just hating on Libertarianism.

Rick Santorum wants to control your life, public and personal.
He doesn't believe in personal free-will or a Constitutionally limited government.

It goes beyond just disagreeing with libertarians or liberals.
He has a complete "if you're not with me, you're against me" mentality.

(If you don't want to watch the whole thing, just watch the first 30 seconds of the video)

"One of the criticisms I make is to what I refer to as more of a libertarianish right. You know, the left has gone so far left and the right in some respects has gone so far right that they touch each other. They come around in the circle. This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don’t think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. You know, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that individuals can’t go it alone. That there is no such society that I am aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture." -Rick Santorum

Just another scary clip:


Complete disregard for the 'Declaration of Independence'....
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." (Declaration of Independence, Wiki)

How anyone could back this man and his ideas are beyond me...
