    Serious question for Social Conservatives. Who are you going to vote for, Bachmann or Santorum and why?

    I still haven't made up my mind who I'll vote for and befoer I do I'm asking for opinions from everyone.

    If you are not a SoCon but support either of these two candidates, I would also like to hear from you.

    If you aren't voting for either of them then don't waste your time here.

    If you are a Liberal you will be ignored.

    They both are at or near the bottom of the polling and won't be on any ticket unless there's a 3 car pile up that kills the front runners.

    aside from that

    Bachman. Santorum was tossed out of PA for being incompetent.

    It doesn't matter to me where they are in the polls, I don't vote by polls.

    I'm supporting Newt, but if the Social Conservative thing is most important to you, and those are the two you've narrowed your list down to, I'd probably go with Santorum because he's a more credible figure. 12 years in the Senate, extensive FP background.

    Well, no, he got tossed out because voters were taking their frustration out on any Republican available in 2006, and he just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He did win two very tough elections as a Republican in a blue state without being a RINO sellout like Arlen Spectre.

    Bachmann and Santorum will not be around for anyone to vote for either.
    They will both be gone past NH. Possibly after Iowa.

    I ran a youth football clinic here in the mid 90s and we had numerous former pros come every year. We had Earl Campbell, Billy White Shoes Johnson and Downtown Charlie Brown come the year that Newt came here and spoke at this football jamboree. His theme: death penalty for drug dealers with mass executions. That was his speech at a youth football clinic with 350 7-11 year old kids. The parents were shocked. But that is classic Newt.
    Google his absurd recent speech about opposing the independent judiciary. Newt is a reactionist of the highest order. Not Presidential material.
    Now I like Newt as he is a brilliant historian and speaker. But the thrice divorced Humpty Dumpty is history in 3 weeks.
    The guy your unions made up all those lies about Mitt Romney is the nominee.
    Vote for him or get 4 more years of the current moron.

    :lol::lol:
    Santorum got tossed out because he is a hypocrit and PA voters tired of the moral police. I have a ton of relative up there. Santorum was exposed as the bigot he is.
    Spectre despises the religous right and their moral police so he went where he was wanted. Western PA Democratic politics is fiscally conservative. Additionally, they have always supported the unions there. Spectre was as good a tough ass prosecutor in his day and is a no nonsense individual. I respect the hell out of the guy.

    Santorum is the man, but American isn't ready for someone with the balls to do what it takes.

    It makes no difference – both are interchangeably crazy. What’s remarkable is both are lawyers yet are remarkably ignorant of – or willfully in contempt of – the Constitution, particularly with regard to its fundamental tenet of privacy rights.
