Two Sons: Ron Paul vs. Rick Santorum


Ron Paul is a freedom-loving man of principle, not a weather-vane. For the 20+ years he’s been in Congress he has stood unwaveringly for liberty, cutting back the size and scope of the behemoth State. He does not flaunt his Christianity to buy votes, he applies it (e.g. “Thou shall not steal.”)


Rick Santorum's stances on sodomy, abortion, education, ObamaCare, and 2nd amendment rights are most commendable. However, as fruit inspectors we need to see his voting record measure up. 
As Senator, Rick Santorum voted to subsidize the infamous Planned Parenthood, and for the “Freedom of Access to [Abortion] Clinic Entrances Act” which is being used to federally prosecute pro-life protesters who demonstrate outside abortion clinics. What’s more, he voted to invade Iraq without a declaration of war, for gun-control, twice to raise the debt ceiling, the Medicare Part D prescription drug program and to expand the unconstitutional Department of Education. Rick Santorum said, "I'm proud to endorse Arlen Specter," a radical pro-abortion candidate.
Perhaps this is why Howard Phillips called him an establishment man and a "dangerous man." 

By their fruits you will know them.

“"But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first 
       and said, 'Son, go, work today in my vineyard.' He answered and said, 
        'I will not,' but afterward he regretted it and went. 
        Then he came to the second and said likewise.  
        And he answered and said, 
        'I go, sir,' but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?" 
        They said to Him, ‘The first.’...”
~Matthew 21:28-31

Excellent points! I didn't know Santorum voted like this! Certainly not in line with his stated principles! Thank you!
