    Here's a hint: he hates the concept. Santorum is a blatant big-government hack who both liberals and conservatives alike should be very wary of:

    Don't believe he actually said that?

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gwwmm-cQxU&feature=player_embedded]Rick Santorum On Small Government (spread far and wide) - YouTube[/ame]

    This is not putting words in Santorum's mouth. Anyone who votes for this guy is a lazy thinker and dangerous voter.

    Problem is, a lot of so-called conservatives are in favor of exactly what he said - They actually want a government that controls their reproduction and their love life. They want to be able to take birth control and health checks away from people.

    I can't believe anyone still believes the GOP is about limited government. They treat 9/11 and "traditional family values" like it's a blank check to do what they want in the same way the Democrats do with the Commerce Clause.

    It is limited government in terms of the economy.

    In terms of society, conservatism is divided, with Libertarianism representing the early America spirit the most.

    You don't believe Santorum said that??

    I can't believe you posted that!! Santorum is a Hard-line Social Conservative! To him, god has a place in your life, and it is up to the government to put GOD there!

    Perry wanted to inject 13 year old girls with a drug that has dangerous side effects to prevent STDs. 13 year old girls. And he portrays himself as a Conservative.

    Not quite. Santorum's view of traditional economic conservatism is that gov shouldn't keep taxes and regulations low. Low = limited; Santorum's view =/= limited.
