    In a question about the Constitution and Ron Paul, Rick Santorum replied with the following:

    I am strongly starting to lead toward Santorum as my nominee choice. He nailed it with this answer.

    Hokay…

    What you quoted was gibberish. Santorum clearly has no idea what he’s talking about.

    Santorum's concept of the role of the Declaration of Independence is opinion. The DoI does not have the force of law. It does not have the force of "why", other than a 'blow me' to King George III. The charter of our governance is the secular Constitution. End all, be all.

    even if Santorum was right and too much individualism is wrong, the pendulum has swung so far into the oppression range, that making a speech like that is stupid.

    this country is not under any threat of too much individualism, but too much oppression , yes

    It's taken 100 years for the progressives to corrupt this nation as much as they have. It's not going to get fixed overnight by cutting everything at once.

    I suggest you both read the Declaration more closely.

    Santorum is a doofus. The French founding document, the Declaration of the Rights of Man, also declared the unalienable rights of man given by God.

    And so forth.

    Santorum is misinterpreting the purpose of the Declaration of Independence. It is not a document to establish that all men are created equal. It is a list of grievances against the British rule and an explanation of why we are leaving
