Rick Santorum has done it again. At a time when he was told to step down, at a time when people thought he would fade away, and at a time when when Romney thought he’d win these states like he did in the 2008 election, Santorum destroyed his fellow GOP candidates in all three states. It was such an unexpected turn of events that it could be described as nothing short of an epic fight. This is the kind of momentum that Santorum needed after losing in Florida as Newt and Romney took the center of attention by shooting each other in the foot. To realize the full of extent of this victory, Wintery Knight reports the results:
• Missouri: Santorum beats Romney 55-25: +30%. • Minnesota: Santorum beats Romney 45-27: +18%. • Colorado: Santorum beats Romney 40-35: +5%.
This is the publicity he needs to acquire more funding, media attention, and credibility as he continues to fight against the tide that pompously declares Romney to be the inevitable nominee. Rick is the kind of candidate that is trustworthy, politically rigorous, experienced, and respectable. He can bring about the kind of revolution that we need in our country. A revolution that not only promises to give us a brighter financial future but a moral future that supports a healthy responsibility for making our own decisions instead of depending on the government to do them for us. Today we live in an age that is intellectually and morally deficient. We have failed to live out the values that stand the test of time. If we continue in our current direction, we’ll pay the price for our immorality just as Greece and Rome did.
This is not a time to mess around playing softball. The fact of the matter is, Romney is not the right candidate for the change that this country truly needs. The success of a nation is not merely determined by its financial status, it is fundamentally determined by its moral status. Unfortunately, the other candidates do not have what it takes to fight for these values. Romney, for example, created the equivalent of Obamacare, was pro-choice, supported SSM, and voted for the wall street bailouts. Newt, on the other hand, just has too much moral baggage to even mention here. America was great for how it valued freedom, privacy, free markets and moral responsibility. It’s not great if we strip ourselves of all the things that made it great in the first place. Christians, it’s time to step up and show the world what a war for truth really means. It’s not about how we feel, it’s not about how we wish it to be, it’s about how we ought to be.
Be the light to a world that is in desperate need for it.
Bravo. Couldn’t have said this better myself.
