    I know, but I just want the honest truth.

    If they say electibility, then I'm not sure I can respect that over ideaology.

    As far as I've heard - he's the Candidate with the least "left leaning" baggage, or least "RINO" in him, as some call it - excluding Dr. Paul.

    Dr Paul's views on the war and legalizing pot make him pretty RINOey, especially among
    establishment GOP.

    I really don't have an explanation for you as to why they don't like frothy Santorum though. Sorry :(

    Because he's a social conservative which many believe isn't conservative at all.

    Which factions of social conservatism are they usually in disagreement with?

    There are factions of social conservatives?

    To many who consider themselves true conservatives, using the power of the federal government to force one to behave in a certain way is the farthest thing from conservatism.

    Conservatives are against big government, not for it when it suits them.

    If Santorum really is a conservative then how come he isnt behind Ron Paul?

    Oh and btw, Americans are sick of WARS FOR PROFIT.

    I'm anti-statist, anti-big government, pro choice all accross the board, but i don't fear a Rick Santorum presidency. If he's elected, he won't be able to stop Gay Marriage from happening, he won't be able to overturn Roe v. Wade, and he won't be able to reinstate DADT. He might try, but he won't be able to do it.
