Santorum is just another Bush clone, big government lap dog. Instead of wasting your time and I.Q points, stop at the Shelby Library instead. We need a President who is willing to stop the end of our Constitutional Republic, not do everything in their power to end it. Vote for Ron Paul and stop the war against Iran before it starts.

Santorum is real. I have listened to him for a long time. He used to be on Bill Bennett's program every Fri. If you have heard him speak, you know he has this Country's best interest in his heart. He knows what to do to get these United States back to work, and back to being under our Constitution.

I have listened to all the candidates speak, even Obama (unfortunately). They all say the same thing, but in a different presentation. There will be NO change in the policies of this government, ever! If you vote for ANYONE other than Ron Paul, we WILL go to war with Iran. Do you understand what that means? There comes a time when you must look past the smoke and mirrors and stop believing the lies. That time is now. Vote to save your constitution and your Republic. Ron Paul is the only candidate that can be entrusted with this great task. Just look at his record.
