RICK SANTORUM LAUNCHES NEW ORGANIZATION TO SHUT DOWN ‘IDEOLOGICAL WARFARE’.

Rick Santorum says that the country is “Engaged in an ideological war”.  and that Americans need to fight against it “at a time when our country needs us”, according to ABC OTUS news. 

Rick Santorum has formed an organization which would keep his name on the front line, and at the same time promote what he sees as the primary social cause for Conservatives. 

“At a  time in our country when we are not at war in the sense of a global war where we are all engaged like we were engaged in World War Two to save our country,” Santorum said at his address to CPAC Chicago.  “We’re engaged in an ideological war here in America and we have a president who is leading the charge and is a committed advocate of transforming America and its foundation.”

The organization was formed, according to Santorum, to focus on conservative issues and to support like-minded candidates, calling them Patriot Voices.

This tie bars with yesterdays commentary from The Horton Journal, in our discussion addressing Americans as a voting block that seems to vote for what they like to hear rather than the actual position held by the candidate.  Santorum, who is adored by the Tea Party would have you think that what he is advocating is a Patriotic Movement to save America.  In reality what he wants to do his send out an army of Far Right extremist Conservatives across the country to suppress the voices of those not as like-minded as he is.  In short, he wants to shut down the National Debate about the future of this country, by dominating the discussion with the views of the Far Right Conservative movement in The United States. 

However, this country is founded on the ideology of the frank and open discussion. Freedom of speech as a matter of fact is the very foundation of democracy. However, the Conservative movement would shut that down.  Just like they have shut it down on the Talk Radio circuit all across the country by dominating the shows with nothing more than Far Right Ultra Conservative talk show hosts, who attack any callers who happens to disagree with the Conservative cause.  That is apparently, their perception of Democracy, their view and their view only. What is sad is there are so many Americans who have fallen for it hook, line and sinker!

They fell for it even after losing almost all they had. Their jobs, 401(k’s) Mutual Funds, even their homes, thanks to their demand for de-regulation.  The result was won-ton disregard for Americans and greed ensued.  De-regulation lead us into the worst recession since the 1930’s. and don’t sit there and blame Obama for not getting us out of it, because it is going to take far more than four mere years to recover from this one folks. 

However, Santorum would put a stop to all this national discussion. He wants to shut down the national debate.  The only cause that should be promoted is the Conservative cause. They are right, the rest of us are wrong, that’s it, case closed, end of discussion. 

Many great nations have fallen to defeat based upon that ideological approach, Germany comes to mind.  After Hitler came to power he gradually shut down the National Debate. Then he criminalized any opposition. Then he started executing the opposition, then for certain segments of mankind he just decided that outright extermination was the final solution.  Why?  Because, his position was the right position. He knew what needed to be done.  He was right and all those opposed were wrong.  Sound familiar? 

What Santorum is proposing is a dangerous ideology. Americans need to realize what is going on with this approach could have serious repercussions for the future of this country. 

We debated the Declaration of Independence by means of a National Debate.  We debated the composition of The Constitution  of The United States, We discussed the ideology behind the Bill of Rights. Yet, with all these men who declared that they would sacrifice the sacred honor, their lives, and fortunes for liberty, and the Freedom of Speech, there are people like Rick Santorum who would do all they can to stop open debate, and a discussion that might decide the course of the future of this great nation, the greatest experiment the world has ever known, The United States of America. 

But you know my friends……………..That decision is yours! 

Have a great day and as usual………………God Bless this great nation…..The United States of America!
