Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum

We all know America is not like any other culture in the world.”  He continued, “We’re all hyphenated Americans.

America is why…an idea, a set of principles and values. That’s what holds us together that’s what’s given us purpose through the centuries…it comes from our founding documents—the Declaration of Independence.” He continued and quoted “What does it profit a movement to gain the country and lose its own soul?”

Regarding the federal government, Santorum said “Obama’s New Deal: give them more power and more authority and they will take care of you.”

Greatest threat to freedom: time, the erosion of our values over time. That we will lose our revolution fervor our passion for truth
