Rick Santorum Launches 'Patriot Voices', Hits Speaking Circuit

Santorum

Failed Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum today launched a new organization called "Patriot Voices" dedicated to the defeat of Barack Obama.

Among the claptrap on its homepage:

We want to expand opportunities for all Americans by advocating policies that encourage traditional marriage, support children and free enterprise. Healthy families help produce a healthy economy.

Santorum is also going on the speaking circuit, Buzzfeed reports:

Rick Santorum is joining the ranks of politicians turning public speaking into a lucrative day job, offering his services through the Harry Walker Agency at — a source told BuzzFeed — between $40,000 and $50,000 a speech...

...His topics include national security, the economy, and the social issues he's long been identified with. "He will chronicle his battles for the dignity of all human life, his effort to protect traditional marriage, and his struggle to reverse Hollywood's and the main stream media's onslaught against virtue," the agency promises.

  1. "He will chronicle his battles for the dignity of all human life"

    Unless that human is gay, of course.

  2. It probably sounds better in the original German. Is Leni Riefenstahl dead? She could make the movie.

  3. He makes several statments that make it clear that he does not consider gays, at best, equal, at the very worst, even human.

    There is a short, 3-question survey on the home page about your feelings on President Obama. I encourage taking the survey and make those numbers less favorable for them when he undoubtedly touts them to the media.

  4. An addendum....the survey questions change and it appears you can take multiple surveys :)

  5. If you need to go around telling everyone you're a "Patriot," you're probably not one.

    A similar trend exists with the phrase "fair and balanced."

  6. Mother of God ....

    I thought he was dead and buried at the cross-roads with a stake driven through his heart . Now that he has risen I shall have to wear garlic around my neck for protection from this blood sucking succubus.

  7. He is flat-ass broke & that's why he's doing this.

  8. It could be worse. That bigot could be speaking from the Senate Chamber or horror of horrors: The Oval Office.

  9. "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel". which is the judgement of Samuel Johnson, a genuine conservative.

  10. All human life? You mean until it's born. Then it's on its own.

  11. How did conservatives co-opt the word,"patriot"? On Sirius, the liberal channel is called "Sirius Left", while the conservative channel is called "Sirius Patriot".

  12. Just what we need: another uninformed and not wishing to be informed ultra-conservative on the 'talk' path.

  13. Dastius, they've been redefining words and phrases long before accusing us of trying to do it with "marriage."

    For example, "activist judge" means a judge whose ruling they don't agree with. "Universities" are liberal indoctrination camps. The "First Amendment" is that part of the Bill of Rights that protects their speech from criticism and counterpoints. "Bullying" is what happens to them when people fight back. "Overwhelming amounts of social science" (Tony Perkins - in relation to LGBT equality) means a single study that has been debunked since 1999.

    Unfortunately, very few outlets are willing to call them out on it.

  14. "We want to expand opportunities for all Americans..."

    Unless you're gay, right Ricky? Then 'All Americans' actually devolves into a series of sub groups which HE thinks he has the right to deny equal rights to.

  15. Looks like they're still using us as a wedge issue to distract attention from political corruption, and to win another election. Of course we played into their hands by making marraige our top issue. Even after decades of this game, we still let ourselves be used. It's what happens when we don't value brains or character, and when our leaders are chosen for their looks.

  16. If he wants to fight the onslaught against virtue perhaps he should speak at the GOP convention. Ask them to raise their hands if they had ever been divorced, ok how many divorced more than once, ok how many were ever unfaithful to their spouse? How many ever accepted donations from big oil or big banks in return for poltical favors? Really clean up your own house first before taking on the other 330 million Americans, because you all have some santorum on your hands.

  17. "His determination to bury at least one more of his children, as Santorum feels the best way to show the morals he believes in would be to drive one of his own to suicide"

  18. Should Ricky fail at this new career, there's always a need for men's room attendants and burger flippers.

  19. $50,000?!? That's more than most of us make in a year. There is no vomit bag large enough.

  20. @Houndentenor—good thought, kind of sums up existence as we know it today. Spot on.

  21. Yeah, he's trying to pay off his failed presidential campaign!!! LOL!!!

  22. OK, well I lost that bet with myself. The cynic said it would be less than 6 months before this turd floated back to the surface, and the politically-correct-facade side of me said 9 to 12 months. I should listen to the cynic at all times where political hacks are concerned.

  23. How about Mr. Santorium, who still has over $2,000,000 worth of campaign debt, getting a REAL job and stop living off other peoples money? Sounds like Rick is not only addicted to celebrity and having an audience but also the enjoying living off other people's money. But then again his anti-birth control position has left him with many mouths to feed.

  24. My very strict Republican voting Father always said "Vote Republican; You get more for your money than with Democrats."

  25. Rick and his Anonymous Christians want to spew their propaganda
