Rick Santorum – “The Servant”

Today is an exciting day in the world of blogging. 

Breaking National Blogger Ed Morrissey comes out to say : My choice: Rick Santorum  

HotAir

Hot Air is one of the leading conservative blog for breaking news and commentary covering the Republican primary, the 2012 election, politics, media, and culture.

“Why Santorum?  In my estimation, Santorum is the last consistent conservative standing, and the only one both promoting the conservative agenda and campaigning as a conservative in the race.  That doesn’t make Santorum perfect; he lacks the executive experience I’d like to see, and some of his positions in the past and present give me pause.  However, compared to the heterodoxies of his competitors in the GOP race, Santorum has a superior record on promoting conservative policies and values.

Even more than that, though, Santorum has demonstrated a level of personal integrity in this race that outshines the rest of the field.  Santorum has campaigned with blue-collar Reagan Democrats in mind, pushing for an economic plan that would revitalize manufacturing and small business.” 

Then as I am looking through social media I come across this blog. 

TimManBlog Whatever I’m Thinking 

Rick Santorum - The Servant

 Every once in awhile I read a blog post and I am truly blown away because it hits me in the heart. I only wish I had the talent to express my thoughts like this. I have no idea who TimManBlog is but I have some amazing admiration for him.

Rick Santorum — The Servant  

Upon reflection, I was struck by the fact that Santorum received only one standing ovation through the entire speech.  To be sure there was nothing in his presentation that was disliked, yet he doesn’t generate adulation the way some other candidates do.  In fact, most candidates package their stump speeches around key words and phases specifically designed to make the audience swoon: Hope! Change! No New Taxes! 9-9-9! and the like.  Santorum is different from them, and I don’t believe his difference is an inadequacy or a failing.

Thinking of the current four remaining GOP candidates I think we can now apply a single word description to each.

Romney is The Executive. Give him a job like running the Olympics or building big companies and he gets the job done. Unfortunately he is incapable of knowing which job to do.  He’s been on both sides of so many issues (abortion, cap and trade, health care mandate, global warming, gun control, etc. etc. etc.) that he obviously will need some direction as President.

Gingrich is The Visionary. He has wonderous ideas every minute of every day. However, we end up bickering as to which of his ideas are brilliant and which are idiocy.

Ron Paul is The Ideologue. He doggedly sticks to his Free Market economic policy and his Non-Interventionist foreign policy like a Swiss watch sticks to its timing.  Unfortunately he cannot conceive of any flexibility in his ideology even when confronted with practical problems such as killing Bin Laden.

That leaves Rick Santorum.

Santorum is The Servant. He is the Servant of his Country, of his Constitution, of his Family and of his Faith. He was the Servant to the people of Pennsylvania when he voted against a national right-to-work law because he would not approve of a federal law which overturned his state’s law. He’s been criticized for that vote and indeed it went against his own politics, but he would not abandon his role as Servant to the State of Pennsylvania.

People stood up for Santorum only once tonight. He is more soft-spoken than dramatic and people politely listen to him speak as if he were their neighbor next door. He is not a Napoleon by character or temperment. You will never cheer Santorum like a purple-clad Roman conquering hero; you will never faint at his feet. He will never become a despot.

Santorum will never present himself as your provider. He will expect people to pursue happiness and he will see his role as service to that pursuit by securing those natural rights we all deserve as people. In this way he will endeavor to be the Servant to Freedom.

Throughout this process we’ve seen that we live in an age of great egos. We see pundits and journalists and presidents vying with each other for our accolades. Santorum is the exact opposite, a Servant, and that difference may be what the country needs right now. Read the rest of this article Rick Santorum -The Servant

Interesting to note it is the Grassroots who are driving the Narrative about Rick Santorum. In my opinion Rick Santorum is a perfect example of “Flipping The Funnel” and electing a Civil Servant.

    Senator Santorum,
    I have yet to make up my mind between you and Newt Gingrich. Newt seems to have greater appeal with the TP movement because he talks about reforming government and the political party establishment. You do not articulate this concern which makes you appear to be satisfied with the current government processes and would just tinker around the edges of our current megalithic structure. We need wholesale government reform if we are to undo what progressives from both parties have burdened America with: too much debt and regulation.
    You need to articulate a greater vision of individual liberty and how the American government is supposed to work. In this regard, you need to address the issue of our dysfunctional government and the reforms needed to rein in Congress and the unelected bureaucracy. Americans feel helplessly trapped by the web of a ruling elite of politicians, bureaucrats and big business.
    Congress is clearly incapable of regulating itself. As a minimum, Congress needs to be reined in by a Balanced Budget Amendment with spending and tax caps, Term Limits and wholesale tax reform.
    We need to eliminate any form of income tax which penalizes productivity and innovation and is readily manipulated by politicians and unelected bureaucrats and their crony special interests. A flat consumption tax, such as the Fair Tax, legislatively tied with the repeal of the 16th Amendment, is more progressive than our current tax code and would stimulate economic/jobs growth and make American industry competitive again.
    We must reverse the current crony capitalist system if we are to restore a truly representative, decentralized democratic republic, as intended by our founders.
    Respectfully.
