Rick Santorum Quote clips (titles paraphrased)
Rick Santorum on Small Government: âEUoeOne 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 donâEUTMt 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 regulations low, that we shouldnâEUTMt get involved in the bedroom or in cultural issues. That is not how traditional conservatives view the world.âEU
Rick Santorum on Sex: "One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country.... Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that's okay, contraception is okay. It's not okay."
Rick Santorum on Religious Tolerance: "The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical. And that is what the perception is by the American Left who hates Christendom. ... What I'm talking about is onward American soldiers. What we're talking about are core American values."
Rick Santorum on More Religious Tolerance: "Would the potential attraction to Mormonism by simply having a Mormon in the White House threaten traditional Christianity by leading more Americans to a church that some Christians believe misleadingly calls itself Christian, is an active missionary church, and a dangerous cult?"
Rick Santorum, on Gay: "If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [gay] 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. ... That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing."
Rick Santorum on the Freedom: âEUoeThe idea is that the state doesnâEUTMt have rights to limit individualsâEUTM wants and passions. I disagree with that. I think we absolutely have rights because there are consequences to letting people live out whatever wants or passions they desire.âEU
Rick Santorum on Trade Negotiation: âEUoeI donâEUTMt want to go to a trade war, I want to beat China. I want to go to war with China and make America the most attractive place in the world to do business.âEU
Rick Santorum on America's Future: âEUoeSuffering, if youâEUTMre a Christian, suffering is a part of life. And itâEUTMs not a bad thing, it is an essential thing in life âEU¦ There are all different ways to suffer. One way to suffer is through lack of food and shelter and thereâEUTMs another way to suffer which is lack of dignity and hope and thereâEUTMs all sorts of ways that people suffer and itâEUTMs not just tangible, itâEUTMs also intangible and we have to consider both.âEU
Rick Santorum in Defense: âEUoeSome will reject what I have to say as a kind of âEU~Big GovernmentâEUTM conservatism.âEU
Epic Rick Santorum: âEUoeAs the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else. It's being drawn to Iraq. You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don't want the eye to come back to the United States.âEU
Rick Santorum trollface.jpg: âEUoeYou can say IâEUTMm a hater. But I would argue IâEUTMm a lover. . ."
