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.

    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.

    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.”

    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.

    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”.

    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.

    “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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I’m tired of the hypocritical Republican attacks on Hollywood. First of all, Hollywood is not running for office, nor is it claiming to be a model for conservative family values. Second, where do the Republicans get off criticizing Hollywood for things like divorce or adultery when their Party is full of adulterers and liars like Newt Gingrich, with his multiple wives and extramarital affairs?

    BEST WISHES, Senator Rick Santorum. YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE. IF REPUBLICANS WAKE UP, IT IS NOT TOO LATE FOR Ron Paul. Governor Mitt Romney IS “ROAD-KILL.”
