Rick Santorum for President 2016

As was said by Marjorie Dannenfelser, "Today (Wednesday) is the beginning of a new election cycle."  We need to start working on changing the Senate to Pro Life and keeping the House Pro Life in 2014. And we also need to start looking at the presidential race in 2016.

We need Rick Santorum to run for President and be elected in 2016. 

Another quote from Marjorie Dannenfelser, "Yesterday's election results are an invitation to the Republican Party to return to fundamentals. What are the fundamentals of a winning Republican strategy? They are what Ronald Regan called the three legs of the policy stool -- social policy, economic policy, and foreign policy -- fully embracing each one of those." Rick is the only Republican primary candidate that was faithful to this. He is the only one who spoke openly and forcefully about the social issues facing our country. The only one who said that even if we fix the economy we are still headed down the road to destruction if we don't fix our country's moral and cultural decline. Rick we need you to continue working within the Republican Party with all your might to ensure these issues are strongly supported, kept out front, articulated wisely by all the Republican candidates that will be running in 2014 and to build up a strong base for you in 2016. If you would have been the candidate this year, we would have won. As you said in the primaries, Mitt Romney won't beat President Obama. And you were right, because he and his machine insisted on only talking about the economy and ignoring as much as possible the social issues, while the Democrats front paged their social issue standing and twisted our position to appear to be anti-good with virtually no response from our side.

Rick we need you!

We need you and your wife with you great character and "total Pro Life" stance that includes life from conception to death. You have great compassion for those in need and wonderful insight on how to really help them, rather than locking them into poverty and hopelessness for the rest of their life.

Thanks for The Patriot Voices that will help us to keep working for what is right and good even between elections and during these dark times in our Presidency.

What do we make of this

What Do We Make Of This?

November 6, 2012

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” - John Adams

    In the 2012 presidential election, many conservatives were flustered about the results.  We thought that it the very least it would be close.  The senate might change to the Republican side, or close to it.  Unfortunately, we lost on both of those counts.  Many predictions based on historical data would say that the election would change to the Republican side.  In spite of an at-best stagnant economy, mountains of debt, burdensome regulations, and foreign policy disasters, the popular vote still went to the Democrat.  While the Democrat candidate received less votes, so did the Republican candidate.  Do people even care about the state of the country?  I think there might even be a bigger question.  Why did we hope so much that the Republican win?  What were the long term problems of this election?  
     I hoped the the election would go to the Republican, but I knew that the final results would indicate the moral integrity of this great nation.
    You see, over the years we have seen time and time again, the moral decay of this nation.  We had many instances in the Constitution used to protect our morals.  For example, the 1st amendment.  Over time the 1st amendment has been distorted from; the government cannot interfere with religion to religion cannot interfere with government.  We have also heard many times that you cannot bring your morality into the government decisions.  Contrary to popular opinion, the government was founded on Judeo-christian values, and most in the United States shared those values.  
     Even still, we have departed from our beloved morals and traditions.  Millions of children have been deemed to be a choice; it is celebrated when the God-given protections are stripped away and the "choice's" voice is silenced forever.  Demands for government-funded contraception methods exceed the demands to help the handicapped.  Sex is deemed as the most natural action of humanity and yet the natural results of sex is killed.  The need for man-made objects is greater as we assume the unnatural actions are becoming natural, specifically contraception and birth control.  And while sex is natural, it is only natural in the way created by God.  The depravity does not end here however.  Homosexual attraction has become greater and is celebrated.  And yet when a godly couple might choose to abstinence until marriage, then get married, they are strange.  Quite possibly, on the eve of the wedding, the husband will be told that it the end of his life.  When a good and decent organization declares that it believes that marriage was created for one man and one women, protests and disgraceful actions follow in response, but when a company supports homosexuality, it is celebrated.  Our teenagers are taught about sex in the classroom.  An atmosphere that should be for the parents.  Fathers are becoming increasingly rare.  There is an unwillingness to reform our entitlements for fear we might lose our money, but be better suited for our children.  me Me ME ME ME ME ME, I WANT I WANT I WANT.  I want to feel good.  I do not want to do something difficult.  I will not stand up for what is right if I might lose something.  
     Our moral culture is depraved, it is no wonder we might get the results that we got.  Quite possibly, the only way to emerge from this, is for a spiritual awakening.  A belief in right and wrong.  A return to the morality of our founders, on the bible.  Respect for your brother and sister.  A love of life.  Family values.  Selflessness.  Faith.  Humility. etc. etc. etc. 
     America no longer wants truth and justice.  We have chosen our path many years ago, but the final nail in the coffin was election day.  Americans showed our true colors.  There is always hope for a better time, but at this time, it seems unlikely.  
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.”

Laura Ingrahm just made another right on observation.   she said: "the republican elites lead us down the path of the fairy tale of moderation".

She couldn't be more right!  Start a third party , united with the Tea Party that is totally right.  Get Sarah Palin to lead the party.....and run Rick Santorum  with ....I said Paul Ryan ...but it could be Adam West,  or Bobby Jindal.....  be creative.  what is being done is not working.  Our Constitution and our country as we have known it is in jeopardy.

Let's face it.  Obama won.  Yes there was fraud.  But unfortunately, that won't change it.

We've got a candidate for 2016.  You've probably figured out that most of the members of Patriot Voices like him a lot.  His name is Rick Santorum.

Rick Santorum ran in the Republican primary for the 2012 GOP nomination, earning tremendous support among social conservatives.  After he suspended his campaign, he founded Patriot Voices and the Patriot Voices PAC,  which have been very active in supporting Mitt Romney and conservative leaders across the nation.

Is Mitt Romney Pro Life?

Mitt Romney has stated publicly that he is in favor of abortions in cases of rape, incest or to protect the mother's health.

What about God's unalienable right to life for the heartbeat living within that mother's womb?

Mitt Romney would not protect that living heartbeat in cases of rape, incest or to protect the mother's health.

Is Mitt Romney truly pro life or are he and the Republican Party deceiving pro life supporters by saying that
he is pro life to solicit their votes?

Please view Mitt Romney's other stated positions and intended courses of actions below on protecting innocent life in the womb as well as Tom Hoefling's and decide in your heart which one of the two candidates is truly pro life.

ROMNEY: Let me tell you what my orientation would be, which is I would like to appoint to the Supreme Court justices who believe in following the constitution as opposed to legislating from the bench.
I would like to see that Supreme Court return to the states the responsibility to determining laws related to abortion, as opposed to having the federal Supreme Court from the bench telling America and all the states how they have to do it. I think that's the appropriate course.
Now, is there a constitutional path to have the Congress say we're going to push aside the decision of the Supreme Court and we instead are going to step forward and return to the states this power or put in place our own views on abortion.
That would create obviously a constitutional crisis. Could that happen in this country? Could there be circumstances where that might occur? I think it's reasonable that something of that nature might happen someday. That's not something I would precipitate.
What I would look to do would be appoint people to the Supreme Court that will follow strictly the constitution as opposed to legislating from the bench. I believe that we must be a nation of laws.
Our message to EVERY officer of government in America:



Is an unborn child a person? Of course.

Which is why we MUST abolish abortion in this country NOW.

America's founders clearly stated in the Declaration of Independence that the equal protection of the God-given, unalienable right to life of every person is the primary reason for the existence of government.

And, the ultimate purpose of our Constitution is to "secure the Blessings of Liberty to Posterity."

Two of the Amendments to that precious document spell out unmistakably what is required of every officer of government, at every level, and in every branch:

"No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law."

"No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

The equal protection of every innocent person within the United States is NOT optional. IT IS IMPERATIVE.

That's why We the People DEMAND that ALL officers of government, in EVERY branch, and at EVERY level, keep their oath to defend the unalienable, God-given right to life of EVERY innocent person, FROM CREATION UNTIL NATURAL DEATH.

The practices of abortion and euthanasia should not exist in a republic whose form of government, and law, and claim to liberty is premised on the foundation of the equal protection of unalienable, God-given natural individual rights.

If our elected representatives, and the officers of government they appoint, will not keep their sacred oaths of office to protect the God-given rights of all the people, we intend to replace them with those who will.

“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound  by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution..."

-- Article VI, the United States Constitution

", help me God."

-- George Washington, upon the completion of the taking of the oath of office which is required by our Constitution

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."

-- The Declaration of Independence

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

-- The Preamble, or Statement of Purpose, of the United States Constitution

"No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law."

-- The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution

"No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

-- The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution

"The appellee and certain amici argue that the fetus is a 'person' within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. In support of this, they outline at length and in detail the well known facts of fetal development. If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case, of course, collapses,  for the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment."

-- Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Roe vs. Wade, 1973

"You shall not murder."

-- Exodus 20:13

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever." 

-- Thomas Jefferson

Is Pro Life With Exceptions Pro Abortion?

Dear Mr. Santorum,

My understanding is that you are pro life without exceptions. If that is your position, why have you decided to endorse a presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, who is pro-life with exceptions (except rape, incest or endangerment of the mother's health - Isn't a pro life with exceptions position still a pro abortion position?). Mr. Romney has also stated publicly at "I would like to see that Supreme Court return to the states the responsibility to determining laws related to abortion, as opposed to having the federal Supreme Court from the bench telling America and all the states how they have to do it. I think that's the appropriate course." Does that sound like a president who would take an active role in stopping abortions? Why not, instead. publicly endorse a presidential candidate, Tom Hoefling, and a vice-presidential candidate, Jonathan Ellis, of America's Party who, like you, are pro life without exceptions and are determined to do everything in their vested power as president and vice-president of the United States to stop abortions?

I would like to add to this posting, as a PS below, an eloquent endorsement for Tom Hoefling's candidacy posted at which I agree with. You will note that this individual supported you and voted for you in the primary for that same reason, namely, that you are pro life without exceptions.

On this basis, in these remaining days before November 6th, I am asking you to please reconsider your public endorsement of Mitt Romney and instead publicly support the candidacy of Tom Hoefling and Jonathan Ellis for president and vice-president of the United States in this 2012 election.

Thank you for your kind attention and consideration.

Sincerely Yours,

Larry DeMejo (a New York state voter endorsing Tom Hoefling and Jonathan Ellis for president and vice-president of the United States in 2012)

PS   I Endorse Tom Hoefling for President

I have been saying for a few weeks now that a full written endorsement for Tom Hoefling of America’s party was in the works.
I already knew I was going to vote for Tom a few months ago but I had been so caught up in the Romney drama that I didn’t stop to consider that rather than trying to convince people how bad Romney is, I may do better to convince people how good Tom is.
In thinking about how I would construct this endorsement I wanted to make sure that I made it about Tom and not Romney; about a values based candidate who deserves the votes of principled conservatives who believe that good can conquer evil, not about chastising those who aren’t principled and choose to believe that only a lesser evil can defeat evil.
In church this morning my Pastor spoke of 5 things to get through stressful circumstances.
1. Trust that God is holy and good
2. Trust in his promises
3. Stop trying to be in control
4. Open your eyes in your circumstances
5. Embrace freedom while you walk through
Of these, the one that spoke to me most was stop trying to be in control. He spoke of those three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace (the story that keeps confirming my decision to support Tom). He talked about how they knew their God was holy and good and in control, and they said “we will not bow”.
He spoke of how we need to understand that we don’t control the government. God raises governments and he tears them down, what our focus should be on is fellowship with him and when we focus on his goodness we walk in faith. When we walk in faith we can walk around in a fiery furnace like it’s a day on the beach.
Tom Hoefling is a humble man who loves this country. He is the underdog of all underdogs and yet is willing to step out in faith because he believes that God is indeed Holy and good. That goodness of God is what directed the paths of those brave men who founded this country and the freedoms that we have come to take for granted. Tom still believes in that message because he believes that God’s goodness does not fade away.
Tom is standing in front of a powerful King and telling him “I will not bow”. In hearing Tom speak a few times I believe that he is answering a calling. He may not be called to win but he is certainly called to take a stand that no one else is taking.
He is standing for God’s goodness.
One thing that is always a huge factor to me in supporting a candidate is abortion. Abortion is the biggest most heinous atrocity that happened to this nation in its history. I hold it even more atrocious than slavery because at least slaves were allowed to live!! Abortion is closer to the sick actions of Hitler.
I cannot even find words in the English language to express my disgust with a nation that would approve of murdering its most innocent and helpless citizens. It’s mind boggling and excruciatingly painful to think about.
Tom is the only true pro-life candidate on my ballot. What do I mean by that? Well, when Tom says he believes in the sanctity of life, he means it. He doesn’t believe we can pick and choose which people deserve to be protected under the law. A heartbeat is a heartbeat, a life is a life and it is worthy of protection no matter how it came to existence.
Tom understands the threat of Iran and our duty as America to protect our allies and not appease those who would seek to destroy us.
Tom understands that government has limitations, that politicians are public servants entrusted with a duty to protect people, not rule over them.
Tom respects our Constitution and would uphold the vow to follow it’s direction and serve the nation under it’s guidelines.
I’m voting for Tom Hoefling for president for the same reason I voted for Rick Santorum in my primary. Because despite the odds against him, despite the voices that say he can’t win, I’m letting God have control.
God asked me to trust him, he asked me to have faith, he embedded in my spirit with the first breath of life that entered my body, a part of him. The part of me that moralizes and holds on to the values that keep me close to him, those same values brought me to support Rick Santorum, a man who fought for the unborn, a man who believes in the Constitution and has respect for America’s exceptional history of freedom that no other country has ever been able to experience.
Those same values bring me to support Tom Hoefling. No matter if it’s the primary or the general election I will always vote my values. My values will never allow me to vote for a lesser evil.
My God is good and holy. My God is in control. I trust his promises. My eyes are open to see his presence. And with a vote for my conscience I embrace freedom.
Tom Hoefling America’s Party
God’s candidate

Todd Akin

In the Missouri senate race Todd Akin is still behind, but can he win, Akin has the backing of conservatives like Mike Huckabee, Jim Demint, Newt Gingrich and Rand Paul. I do not live Missouri, but if you live in Missouri, to help out go too
