Don't go to college. Santorum is good enough for everything.

These are the GOP's bread and butter. Pissed off, scared, and uneducated. Easy to direct that anger and fear towards the hatred of elitists, illegals, muslims, non christians, etc. all while making it seem okay that you don't understand what's going on because being educated is a bad thing.

There is nothing more comforting than someone telling you your shortcomings and failures are not as bad as they seem or not your fault at all.
Dems do the same thing with the poor and minorities ... Common tactic, tell someone their shortcomings are institutional and not individual. I agree with your characterization, currently stationed in Midwest, far more rural and conservative than people think, and your articulation is on point in many cases. I have had affiliated employees tell me exactly what you state.

Actually Rick wants all kids to be homeschooled by fundamentalist Christian parents who don't believe in separation of church and state. He wants the kids to be raised to believe in a form of Christian Sharia in which their interpretation of the Bible trumps civil law. You know like how he educates his kids.

I do have a conservative friend. He and his wife never went to college. She doesn't work. He has an hourly wage job. They don't have insurance and are too poor to pay taxes. He has 3 kids and another on the way. All will be home schooled. I made some comment to him about how his kids better get scholarships to go to college and he just scoffed at the idea that his kids would ever go to college. Not that they couldn't get in or they wouldn't be able to afford it, but just that he didn't want his kids to go to college.
Its cool he probably blames Obama for his problems.

Santorum is using reverse psychology on kids to motivate them to get higher education.


Anyway, here is David Frum's take on the topic

Not 'going' anywhere. The whole thing creaps me the hell out, and is enough to let me know that the guy's thought processes are alien enough that I wouLd never be able to blindly trust him. Not that the guy is malicious or anything, but his mind works in ways that I can't predict or understand.

It is entirely 'appropriate' because the incidenr, by itself, is enough to make me concerned about how he would respond to unpredictable events, thus making me concerned about the idea of President Santorum.

Bedides, I thought conservatives were big fans of the wisdom of repugnance.

And IIRC, the pregnancy was ended when they found out it was having issues and carrying it to full-term could've harmed the health of the mother. IOW, an abortion, which he thinks even rape victims should not be able to consider.

First off, it's a d-bag move to bring it up in here, It doesn't have anything to do with the topic at hand.

Secondly, it's his personal and religious belief to do whatever he pleases as long as it doesn't affect anyone else.

Third, you're incredibly reaching there with your statement that you can somehow tie it to his belief to how he would respond to unpredictable events or how much you can 'trust' him. How are you making that connection?

And what's wrong with someone have different (or weird or alien as you call it) beliefs than yourself anyway? As long as it doesn't adversely affect anyone else...

A few years ago I read 'Lolita' by Vladimir Nabakov. At no point did I feel the need to rape children.

My concern is how he thinks and acts.

Certainly if you were all prepared to vote for Obama, but hearing about Rev. Wright changed your mind, that is your right, basso.

I think if you reread the thread, there was quite a bit of banter going on regarding Santorum, children, and playgrounds prior to my post, which is whay brought it to mind.

As long as he is a private citizen, he can be as crazy as he wants. Necessarily, as President of the US, his behavior effects me. Forcing your children to kiss aborted fetal detritus seems a bit mideval to me. It reminds me of the 19th century practice of posing the corpses of dead people photos with their living relatives. Looking at those just evokes an imediate viceral reaction of creepiness.

If it makes you excited, more power to you. But the way this whole democracy thing works, I can vote for him or not based on whatever criteria I chose. To me, it is important that my president value things like science and education.

Back on topic. Why do facts and data hate Santorum so much?

http://economy.money.cnn.com/2012/03...ngs/?iid=HP_LN

Bottom line: longitudinal research shows that people with a college degree earn, on average $650,000 more over their career than someone without a college degree.

Holy crap.
