    Santorum in White House race; 'In it to win' - Yahoo! News

    "His opposition to abortion, gay marriage and embryonic stem cell research makes him an appealing candidate for conservatives."

    why can't social cons just join the democrats where they belong? they want to control every detail of someone's life.

    blu, please tell me you're not actually suggesting that a social Conservative like myself would even be seen with, nevermind speak to or acknowledge the existance of social Liberals like John McCain, nevermind Barrack Obama.

    The need for control stems from the fact that too few American citizens are currently able or wiling to lead a decent life WITHOUT that overarching control. That decent life is necessary to maintain the foundation that this country and our government was built upon originally and which has been eroding for the last century and a half. Even more so in the last century.

    Because it continues to be a choice about the lesser of two evils. The economy is the top priority for most conservatives right now, even the social ones.

    With the current economic conditions as bad as they are, nothing else should matter at this point.

    And you base this off the guy with that is tied for 1% or less of support from the Republican party.

    10 bucks the media picks him up and tried to make him a front runner.

    Only problem with that is this.... The economic problems cannot be corrected without FIRST correcting the social ills of this nation. 20 million available jobs TOMORROW just by throwing all the illegals in this country into a pit and lighting it on fire. Not to mention the amount we would save in Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, etc... by getting rid of those programs completely. As I said, you can't fix the economic problems without first remedying the social ones.

    If anyone wants to control anyone's life it's the democrats. Abortion is murder, gay marriage is an abomination, and embryonic stem cell research kills unborn infants as does abortions.

    There is a HUGE difference when it comes to Governmental control over things that hurt other people...i.e. laws against murder, thief, poisoning the food supply, etc.....and laws that stick their nose in people's private, consentual lives.

    He's been out of politics for 5 years.

    His lack of fiscal ability was his doom here in PA.

    the religious conservatives, not social, will have to find a new home, eventually.:eusa_pray:

    Irony at it's finest....You want to control a woman's body...you want to control CIVIL marriage based on gender...and you want to control medicine based on your moral totalitarianism.
