Rick Santorum: U.S. Needs Newcomers

Kevin Cirilli, Politico, December 5, 2012

Rick Santorum called for immigration reform on Tuesday, saying that without newcomers from abroad the United States is going to shrink.

“I think the fact that we send some of those people back and don’t give them the opportunity to participate here is wrong,” Santorum told POLITICO. “I think we need to look at a simple fact: We are not having enough children to replace ourselves. Our country is not growing in population simply by the people that are here.”

He continued: “If it wasn’t for immigration, our country would be declining in population. It’s very hard to have economic growth and a forward-looking country that is declining in population.”

Santorum joined other conservatives who have spoken out recently on the issue of immigration following GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s failed election bid, which some say was due to him not being able to attract enough of the Hispanic vote. Earlier Tuesday, former President George W. Bush spoke in Dallas, saying immigrants help the economy.

Santorum—who also said he is not ruling out a 2016 presidential run—stressed that as a first-generation American who is the son of an immigrant, he understands the issue particularly well.

    How about white Catholics having more kids?

      to be fair, Santorum is trying to help on this end.

      • ed91

        how is wanting/encouraging more third world immigrants helping?

  • ed91

    there are enough people………….. stop it with the constant growth……………… the end result won’t be good

      Because of our current financial/economic model, it has been determined by those in control of the system, that “growth” is ALL that matters.

      The way it works is this:

      According to people like Greenspan and others, our debt can be infinite. To them, debt doesn’t matter. What matters is that people are adding money and value to the system. The model is basically that you can personally be in debt for any amount so long as you earn enough money (but hopefully more) to cover your debt expenses along the way.

      That’s why they keep encouraging economic “growth” with immigrants. Although social welfare costs keep rising with more people, more people are enough to keep they system going.

      It’s not the way you can I may think but it’s the way our economic leaders think.

      • NYB

        Consumption must therefore be infinite, too.

        The only problem is that the planet now has over 7 billion mouths to feed. The oceans haven’t any more undepleted stocks of fish, the weather is unpredictable, there isn’t any more unexploited cultivable land, and fertilizer delivery depends on a sound global economy.

        Theoretically, we have the global industrial capacity to produce and consume manufactured widgets almost infinitely, but not to outwit nature and guarantee food for all.

        • http://www.newnation.org/ sbuffalonative

          You and I see this as madness but this is current economic theory. As long as you can increase the number of people paying into and producing products to sell at the bottom to pay for the cost of debt expenditures, current economic theory says ‘bring in more producers, payers, and consumers’.

          Of course, this is a belief system. The system only works if everyone plays along which is why they stress ‘consumer confidence’. If people could conceive of the bubble that’s building up pressure, the system would collapse.

          I actually watched a lecture on this on c-span with a bunch of economic eggheads. These people don’t think the way the average person does. Their notion of financial theory doesn’t reflect the average persons understanding of simple debt and credit.

          That’s why when you and I compare the US government financial system to running the finances of a household (which is real-world economics) these people utterly dismiss the comparison. To them, it’s like comparing apples to polar bears. WE live in the real world. THEY live in the world of economic theory. And THEY are in control.

          To them, immigration (legal and illegal) isn’t about national identity it’s about “growing” the pool of people to keep the theory afloat.

          All of our arguments against immigration fall on deaf ears and closed minds because we’re too stupid to understand how brilliant they are.

      • Joseph U

        Well then, they are going to have to quickly discover a new planet, full of rubes to whom they can continue to export our debt because we are running short of fools on this planet willing to stay in the game.

      • refocus

        If the government’s debt can be infinite, why do we have to suffer taxes?

      • David Ashton

        Bankers live on debt. Past labor in your property is security which they can confiscate if you cannot pay the debt. You future labor is mortgaged to repay interest. If they themselves hit a liquidity crisis they can rely on governments to bale them out by taxing the whole population including people who can pay debts or who have no debts to pay. For John Engelman, the anti-Republican who loves the Bible, see Deuteronomy 15.6.

    Germany and Japan have had economic growth with below-repacement level birth rates. Santorum, like most GOP leaders, is a clown.

    • JohnEngelman

      More immigrants mean more people. More people mean more consumers and more job applicants. By the law of supply and demand this means higher profits, lower wages, and higher profits.

      Economic conservatives agree with me that immigration benefits employers at the expense of employees, and disagree that this is a problem.

      • Nathanwartooth

        Part of the reason also is that they want I pay 3rd world wages but have the security of having the company in the US. That means importing the 3rd world to the US.

    But Ricky Santorum is pro-life, anti-gay, and “conservative”. We should overlook the fact that he is a traitor with more loyalty to “immigrants” than America. Maybe elected officials should have to be fourth generation before being allowed to run for office.

    That’s a feature, not a bug.

    He continued: “If it wasn’t for immigration, our country would be
    declining in population. It’s very hard to have economic growth and a
    forward-looking country that is declining in population.”

    I’m more interested in non-governmental GDP growth per capita than I am interested in total growth for growth’s sake.

    • The__Bobster

      The government needs an ever-increasing number of people to keep their Ponzi schemes going. However, the schemes will rapidly collapse if they import unproductive people.

      • i am

        It is more than a ponzi scheme. The ponzi scheme was started to steal all white peoples wealth and property. Once that is all taken, they have no more use for the old money. They can throw it out and make us all start over with nothing. They will pay us garbage wages. The problem is they need to import more third world garbage, so we all fight each other instead of the controllers. Remember the story about the tower of babble? That is what they are doing here. Making it so people can’t communicate with each other.

    Okay, it’s official now. The Liberals became infected with a virulent infection from playing with some non-Whites, and it’s apparent that the Republicans were never vaccinated.

    Santorum:”without newcomers from abroad the United States is going to shrink”

    “It’s very hard to have economic growth in a country that is declining in population.”

    Declining growth doesn’t terrify me, but it does terrify the elite financial players who make their questionable living on the Ponzi scheme of never-ending economic aggrandizement

    An end to mass immigration and population growth means the power is shifted back to the citizen.

    Housing costs come down, taxes come down, wages go up, and opportunities abound for those who are self-reliant and ready to work. Participation in de-centralized politics increases, and political charlatans are knocked from power and cast into the political wilderness.

    Santorum’s concerns are misplaced. With a shrinking population comes positive consequences, which would outweigh the negative.

      Santorum is dead wrong. He’s either lying or stupid. Or both.

      Gains in productivity have averaged approximately 2.5% for the last century. Projected into the future, such an annual gain will double the standard of living in thirty years. No gains in population are necessary to generate this exponential growth which dwarfs the effects he predicts.

      A lot of people still need to come to the realization that if someone isn’t vocal about being pro-White, then there is a really good chance that they are going to turn on you like a wild animal. Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative, it’s all a matter of sideshow semantics if those labels don’t become synonymous with an unabashed pro-White platform. It’s Racism or Bust.

    Remember this guy during the debates? He showed his addle-brained thinking process to the entire country when he loudly lamented that Romney didn’t want to give felons the right to vote, as if he regarded the matter a civil rights issue.
    Another fine example of what the GOP regards as an important matter .

  • mobilebay

    I’ll speak slowly, Mr. Santorum. We don’t need any more people! Above all we don’t need “immigration reform (AKA amnesty). We need “immigration enforcement.” We also need to deport every illegal alien here, place a moratorium on all immigration for ten years and stop the insane birthright citizenship travesty. Do you immigration lovers ever think of the drain on our natural and social resources? Our welfare system? Our schools, hospitals and prisons? Our neighborhoods? Our culture and language? Well, think and think hard. If you want a decent world for your grandchildren, stop importing poverty and the millions of people who could care less about being Americans and will start their own little enclaves. We are fast becoming the next third world. Thanks!

    Rick Santorum speaking in the above article is the voice of national suicide; it’s the voice of White displacement. This is the way people talk right before they are utterly dispossessed and natonally – as well as racially – implode.

        You’re correct, it is a genocide. I had initially thought about using that term, but I wanted the emphasis to be upon what White Americans were doing to themselves; what was occurring at our own hands and as a result of our own choices.

        • C_C_Conrad

          I understand your point and you are quite correct, ultimately we are responsible for our own mistakes. A better understanding of the long term actions, or should I say attacks, of our enemies will help us all understand how we whites have been manipulated for generations. This is a new way to commit genocide. Revolution From Above is a good book to help us see this more clearly.

      The lot of those who survived the black death improved tremenously with the reduced population. Rents fell and wages went up. Granted the aristocracy suffered by having fewer peasants, but the lot of the individual peasants improved drastically.

    Santorum should be more concerned about the declining industrial base that has been vanishing ever since tricky Dick went to china to talk “trade relations.”…and alas,all those good paying industrial jobs that gave workers the opportunity to buy & consume all went up in smoke…whats our unemployment rate you paid for fraud & race traitor? Its been at least 20 years and more since governmental related jobs outnumbered manufacturing jobs here in America…bring back all industrial jobs that went to china since the early 70′s and then try to push your b.s.Responsible White people with good paying jobs will start having more babies.

  • Athling

    Another Republican shows his true colors. It isn’t the nation they really care about. No, its about keeping themselves in power. They are opportunists who change positions according to the latest poll. Please don’t bother running again Ricky. We know you now.

    • JohnEngelman

      The people the Republicans care about are those who own and run this country. They benefit from the low wages that a high rate of immigration achieves.

      • Athling

        Many in the corporate world see a nation as merely geographic boundaries in which to conduct business at the lowest cost. Their bottom line is the dollar. The welfare of the nation and its people is of little concern for them. Too many Republicans are like minded and will sell themselves to the highest bidder.

      • David Ashton

        How are you getting on trying to convert your fellow Democrats to oppose immigration of cheap labor?

        • JohnEngelman

          In my personal life I am not prone to discuss politics.

          This is how Paul Krugman, who is my favorite columnist, articulates the Democratic dilemma concerning immigration: “open immigration can’t coexist with a strong social safety net; if you’re going to assure health care and a decent income to everyone, you can’t make that offer global.”
          http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/26/the-curious-politics-of-immigration/

          I agree with Professor Krugman. Although I am a social democrat, social democracy has only worked in countries where nearly everyone is white. I am confident it would work with Orientals as well, but I fear that third world peoples would game the system.

          After President Johnson inaugurated the War on Poverty in 1964, welfare benefits became more generous and easier to qualify for. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of blacks quit low paying jobs, and went on welfare. They knew that the good life was out of reach, so they choose the easy life. Whites are less likely to behave that way.

          Many of those blacks supplemented their welfare checks with the gains of criminal activity, giving credence to the folk wisdom, “The Devil finds work for idle hands.” They became a useless, worthless, and dangerous underclass which continues to plague the downtown areas of our once proud cities.

          • ed91

            having paul krugman as your ‘favorite’ explains a lot.

          • JohnEngelman

            It certainly does. He is a columnist for The New York Times, an economics professor at Princeton, and in 2008 he won the Nobel Prize for Economics. Do I need to add that he is an Ashkenazi Jew?

          • David Ashton

            Can he change government policy for the better?

          • JohnEngelman

            I believe he can, if the government follows his advice. It is unfortunately true that economists, unlike chemists and physicists, cannot prove their theories with controlled, repeatable experiments. We cannot go back in time, choose a different economic policy, and measure different results.

          • David Ashton

            Your first sentence is tautological.

          • JohnEngelman

            Tautology may refer to:

            Tautology (rhetoric), using different words to say the same thing, or a series of self-reinforcing statements that cannot be disproved because they depend on the assumption that they are already correct

            Tautology (logic), a technical notion in formal logic, universal unconditioned truth, always valid.
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tautology

            ———

            How is my first sentence a tautology? If the government follows Paul Krugman’s advice, and it is bad advice, he would not change government policy for the better.

            Professor Krugman has made a point of arguing in his columns that a serious recession is not a good time for austerity. He has demonstrated to my satisfaction that austerity has made the situation in Greece worse.

            In the United States the Great Depression was not ended by austerity, but by expanded government spending and employment.

          • David Ashton

            If Krugman can change government policy, Krugman can change government policy.

    Rick Santorum claims to be anti-welfare nanny state, but by being in favor of importing millions of more low skilled poor people from 3rd world countries into the U.S, he is helping to create an even bigger welfare nanny state because most of these poor illegals from south of the border are going to leech off of the government.

    • Germanacus

      I was with you until your creationist crack. I have listened to hours and hours of debates by some of the greatest minds in science (some available on youtube) on the Creation/Evolution debate. When someone so cavalierly makes a statement like “creationist retard” it really presupposes that you either have an enormous command of scientific facts or that maybe “retard” is a label that fits yourself.

      • IstvanIN

        I know that there is a God, and that He is the supreme creator. I also believe that evolution is the work of God. So much of the Bible has been proven true, and one day I honestly feel that science and religion will converge. I also agree that calling creationists “retards” is very unfair. But the creationists with the God is a man in the clouds bit and their denial of science is a bit much.

    • Seek

      Absolutely spot on. And don’t underestimate the role of Christian fanaticism in driving this notion of America as a Third World magnet. Whether the immigration enthusiast is Mike Huckabee (Protestant) or Rick Santorum (Catholic), they are part of what Peter Brimelow calls “the treason lobby.”

      • ATBOTL

        Exactly. I grew up in an Evangelical church that was focused on third world missionary activity and accompanying multi-cult clap trap. This stuff is big among Northern and Midwestern Evangelicals. The Southern Baptist leadership is just as bad. Many of these people are also creationists who believe all sorts of absurd nonsense.

            In 1801,Samuel Slaters factory,one of the first built in America,employed over a 100 children.The oldest was ten and the youngest was four.

            Theophilus Fisk,a Connecticut publisher and Jackson Democrat is ranked as one of the major leaders of the early U.S. labor movement.Fisk denounced wealthy White campaigners for negro rights and in 1836 gave what has been described as a “fierce anti-abolitionist speech” in South Carolina.Fisk’s anger derived from his observation that White slavery had been ignored.Fisk “found that America’s slaves had ‘pale faces’ and as abolitionism grew in Boston,called for an end to indulging sympathies for Blacks in the South and for ‘immediate emancipation of the White (factory) slaves of the North.”(Roediger,p.75).

            Charles Douglass,president of the New England Association of Farmers,Mechanics and Other Working Men,described the four thousand White children and women at work in the factories of Lowell, Massachusetts in the 1860′s as “dragging out a life of slavery and wretchedness…These establishments(New Englands factories) are the present abode of wretchedness,disease and misery…”

            Ruth Holland,commenting on the participation of New England factory owners in the cause of abolition and rights for negroes in the south,observed, “it’s a little difficult to believe that northern mill owners,who were mercilessly abusing White children for profit,felt such pure moral indignation at negro slavery.

            Unknown writer epresses the bitter feelings of the early British factory workers:
            “I’m up,but weary,
            I scarce can reach the door,
            And long the way dreary–
            Oh,carry me once more,
            To help us we’ve no mother,
            To live how hard we try–
            They killed my little brother–
            Like him I’ll work and die!
            The overlooker met her,
            As to the frame she crept,
            And with the thong he beat her,
            And cursed her as she wept.
            Alas,what hours of horror
            Made up her latest day,
            In toil and pain and sorrow,
            They slowly passed away.
            That night a chariot passed her,
            While on the ground she lay;
            The daughters of her master
            An evening visit to pay,
            Their tender hearts were sighing
            As wrongs to negroes were told,
            While the White slave was dying
            Who gained their father’s gold.”

            Compare that with this.

            William Makepeace Thackeray, an Englishman visiting the South during the years before the Confederacy, had this to say (Roundabout Papers, 1862):

            “I witnessed a curious gaiety; heard amongst the black folk endless singing, shouting, and laughter; and saw on holy days black gentlemen and ladies arrayed in such splendor and comfort as freeborn workmen in our towns seldom exhibit….”

            “In a house in a Southern city you will find fifteen negroes doing the work which John the cook, the housemaid and the help, do perfectly in your own comfortable London house. And these fifteen negroes are the pick of a family of some eighty or ninety. Twenty are too sick, or too old for work, let us say; twenty too clumsy; twenty are too young, and have to be nursed and watched by ten more. This was an account given by a gentleman of Richmond of his establishment. Six European servants would have kept his house and stables well. ‘His farm,’ he said, ‘barely sufficed to maintain the negroes residing on it.’”

            White slaves in Britain were often-times children who were poor or orphanaged…they owed no debt…the term “apprenticeship” is a misnomer since the White children only manned the machines,which was not learning a skill.In Michael A Hoffmans book,They Were White and They Were Slaves devotes a chapter or two on workhouses and the Early Factory System in Britain during the Industrial revolution…thousands of White children in Great Britain were forced to work as human brooms inside chimney flues and led miserable lives and died horrid deaths.The condition of these chimney sweepers reveals more than any other form of White slavery,the attitude of the ruling class toward the most defenseless and oppressed segment of the “surplus” White poor….Sweeping chimneys was not a skill…
            Samuel Roberts,in an 1834 essay on the boys used as chimney sweeps addressed his indignation toward the upper class British females who met in their sumptuously-appointed parlors to weep with tender-hearted solicitude over the latest accounts from America of oppression to negroes,while in the next room,scarred and burned 5 year old English boys enslaved as human brooms,were being forced up the lady’s chimney without a thought for their welfare…
            “There is a race of human beings in this country,the Chimney Sweepers’ Climbing Boys…which…is more oppressed than the negroes in either the West Indian Islands,or in North America…These objects are all young and helpless.Their employment is ten-fold more horrible than that of any attaching to the negro slaves…A far greater number of them are crippled,and rendered deformed for life. A far greater proportion of them die in conseqquence of hard usage,while the horrible deaths from suffocation,burning,and other accidents,are in this case,beyond measure more numerous.And all of this at home,within our knowledge,before our eyes…in our very houses…How many of these poor infants…arive at years of maturity?…of those who die young,who knows or cares anything about them? the death of your own dogs would be more lamented…” (An address to British Females,pp.11-17).

        People are going to have to start taking what their clergymen (and women) say with a huge grain of salt. Why should one listen reverently and respectfully to a man or woman with a room temperature IQ just because he is wearing a clerical collar or robe? If what he’s saying would be pablum being said coming from behind the counter at McDonald’s, it’s pablum even when it’s coming from the pulpit.

        And, just because someone’s a good person or has good intentions doesn’t make him right. History is full of good people who were wrong. Our duty is to recognize when they’re wrong and, deftly, to oppose them.

        It really is a misapplication of Levitical law where Moses instructs the people that they are to accept as brothers the stranger who cleaves to them and observes the Law and customs of the Jews. Well, modern application would be immigrants who are law-abiding, pull their weight and ASSIMILATE into American culture and law are welcomed which is not at all what is going on with these people. Hucksterbee and his fellows would also be the first to misapply Paul’s admonition to the Roman church regarding being model citizens and twist it to the usual “Always do what the gummint says without question because God put them in charge -oh, unless it is something I disagree with in which case God gave me other specific instructions.”

        • Anon12

          You sure about that? What does that word “stranger” mean in this context? People of another RACE? I don’t think so….There are so many translations of the Bible over the years that one has to wonder abot many of those words, such as “nation”, “stranger” etc. etc. God did NOT want the races to ever mix! Those that have created a new race entirely, not a race that God Himself created in the first place…Think about it.

    Santorum is a perfect example of why the Republican party must be desroyed and discarded.

    You must admire whomever it was that so intimidated White people that our politicians will never say that we “need to increase White births”.

    How is it that advocating for White survivial is immediately deemed as hatred toward Diversity (which it should be) and akin to a Ku Klux Neo Confederate Nazism?

    Somebody who hates as only a good talumudic could has implanted their aggression deep inside our communal consciousness and rules what we are allowed to say about our own futures. Evil is visible.

    • ed91

      I fear and loathe, not admire.

  • StillModerated

    I think the fact that we send some of those people back and don’t give them the opportunity to participate here is wrong …

    I’m so glad the WhiGOP lost!

        Unfortunately this is a well-appointed Trojan Horse loaded with (Asian) liberal Democrats. They have jobs, but they are still aliens to this culture and will remain so, displacing Anglo-Euros just the same.

  • MikeofAges

    How about developing the people we have here already? My argument always is, even the white population of the United States, except for those people (i.e. the hereditary upper middle class) for whom specific arrangements have been made, has to be considered underdeveloped. No, we don’t need to bring in more people. A nation is not a business.

    • David Ashton

      “A nation is not a business.” Exactly. Even Ayn Rand realized that, but look at what has happened to her “heirs” and “successors”?

      America was supposed to be about “live, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. That all changed on January 17, 1925 when President Coolidge said, “the chief business of the American people is business.” Two years later, on October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed.

    This oaf will not be elected to anything ever again so I’m not too concerned about his views.

    Besides, he is a typical Republican and they are not our friends anyway.

      Rickroller Santorum was an accidental beneficiary of circumstances earlier this year, in that for awhile, he was the “not Romney” flavor of the day, and was able to rack up some primary wins and near-wins just on that. That is a luxury he won’t have in 2016 if he runs, because Politico speculates that counting him, there are 18 big name Republicans mulling Presidential campaigns in 2016. Which means Santorum won’t be able to be the “not-fill in the blank” candidate, and there will surely be more than one social conservative, and as far as immigration amnesty, Santorum coming out for amnesty and open borders won’t make him special, it will put him in the middle of the pack. The special candidate in the field in 2016, however big it grows, will be the one who comes out for whole hog restrictionism and has the resume and record to back it up.

      Fifty years from now, Santorum at least in Presidential terms will be remembered (if he’s remembered at all) as just another flash in the pan during primary and caucus season.

    W. Bush weighs in and tells us that immigrants “invigorate our soul.”

    Madness and Insanity! Republicans looking to prime a Jeb/Rubio ticket to do some pandering on steroids. Die, GOP, Die!!!

    • Nathanwartooth

      The democrats with their nonwhite coalition isn’t going anywhere. The Republicans on the other hand are at deaths door. They need to hurry up and die already.

      They will be able to win a minority of the senate in the future but the presidency probably never again.

      They need to either be replaced by a new political party or have people who actually represent Americas interest run for the GOP. Effectively killing the GOP and turning it into something new.

    The United States currently has a very high population growth for a nation of our size. The facts are it grew from 280 million people in 2000 to 310 million in 2010. That is 30 million people in just 10 years!!! This is an enormous amount of population to absorb in the job market and to support by public services. In 2000 California’s population was about 33 million people, so in effect the nation added close to another California in a mere 10 years!!!

    Therefore, is Rick Santorum, a man who may be running for president unaware of the US Census figures, or he just lying, thus assuming people will blindly accept his counterfactual platitudes without verifying what he is stating.

    And by the way, the most prosperous per capita nations on the earth do not have high population growth but rather a stable, well educated, homogenous population. With advances in technology a nation can even have a large industrial output without a large population.

    In my opinion, Santorum just wanted to cowardly jump on the immigration amnesty bandwagon for politically expedient purposes. He is another reason why the Republican Party is doomed.

    By the way Rick, the immigrants are not going to vote for you anyway.

  • Ozzy

    Does any one believe anything Sanitarium says? He is a lying, war mongering, neo-con.

  • Joseph U

    1. Why in the !@#$% does Father Sanctimonium think we ANY more people here?! Life seemed just fine to me when the US had 230 million and 89% were white people of an identifiable gender.

    2. Why does anyone listen to this jackass? It is like having to listen
    to Herman Cain or one of these other losers who had a week of fame.

    I do not know anyone in the city or in the country who has complained “We just don’t have enough people where I live. I’d especially like to see more people who receive welfare payments and speak a foreign language to enrich my area.” or “It’s really bringing me down. We haven’t had a bedbug infestation in my neighborhood yet. I don’t have any friends with typhoid or Chagas or TB. We must be doing something wrong.”

    This guy must have been given a similar script to the one I heard George “The Decider” Bush reading from yesterday on the news. He was rambling off something about how immigrants bring “vibrancy” or some such bs. There must be some organized push on by the One Party System to get immediate amnesty -or is it “am nasty” for all of these millions of would be welfare beneficiaries from the four dismal corners of the earth. It gets more outrageous by the hour. What is afoot here?!

    Someone needs to ask Santorum how he can claim that we need more immigrants for economic growth when the ones now coming here are disproportionately not simply non-productive but outright dependent on government handouts? In a time when we’re being told that war-wounded veterans, the American elderly and struggling students need to embrace austerity, Santorum is talking out of his a** when he says we need to embrace more non-productive people in this country.

    If you import people from Juarez and Mogadishu, you soon won’t have the country that defeated Hitler and sent a man to the moon, you’ll have one where drug dealers and war lords rule the streets.

    Another good christian conservative politician advocating for White genocide.

  • rebelcelt

    Well we can officially cross him off the list. The man has no idea of what it takes to survive as a nation. No matter how good of an economic plan you have if you do not know who you are doing it for why does it matter? I am about to go to my second job. If the money i earned went to the kids down the street what good would my job do my family? Rick would move more people into his house and talk about how his family is growing when all that is happening is he is depriving his children of their natural parental affection and support. God how have whites become so stupid.

  • Anon12

    Santorum has always been a moron much like most “conservatives” when it comes to race…..they are all on the “hispanic” bandwagon now and Whites are at the bottom of their list.
