He’s either a stooge funded by the powers-that-be to satiate the evangelicals and Tea Party movement, or, he’s presently the most dangerous man in America.
John F Kennedy’s speech on the separation of church and state made him ‘nearly throw up’. Santorum is an evangelical’s dream come true. Probably his first act on becoming president would be to place a full size crucifix over the portal to the White House.
Thankfully, it’s unlikely he’ll ever see the inside of the Presidential abode, except as a visitor. Knowing full well there are enough, sane, independent voters out there to ensure it won’t happen, the powers that control the Republican Party are surely feeding the far right extremists with him until such time as Mitt Romney secures sufficient support to ensure his nomination.
It’s interesting to note they’ve already nobbled the maverick candidate, Newt Gingrich. He’s been chased down, roped, and hog-tied.
Rick Santorum doesn’t realize he’s dangerous. He’s simple enough to truly believe the words that come forth from his mouth. But, those who believe they have God on their side are always dangerous. After all, God never confirms or denies such things, leaving the divinely possessed wholly convinced of their ‘specialness’ – until something happens to dampen their faith, like losing a war, or maybe, an election.
It’s a fact of history. Every nation that’s ever gone to war has firmly believed God is on their side. History also tells us that God is invariably on the side of those with the biggest tanks, best trained army, and most technologically advanced weaponry.
If God’s a betting man, my guess is He’s pretty savvy.
Which is exactly why poor old Rick Santorum is deluding himself. I mean, just look at him…
… if you were God, would you put your money on this man?
