Stupid Liberal Quote of the Day…

Today the quote comes from a fan of massively intrusive government, socialist Rick Santorum:

“And that’s sort of where we are in today’s world, unfortunately. The idea is that the state doesn’t have rights to limit individuals’ wants and passions. I disagree with that. I think we absolutely have rights because there are consequences to letting people live out whatever wants or passions they desire. And we’re seeing it in our society.”

 

He has a problem with the idea that “the state doesn’t have rights to limit individuals’ wants and passions.”  Notice he doesn’t say the state has a right to limit how you act on your wants and passions (which it does if said wants and passions hurt another person)…but he actually said the state can legislate your wants and passions.  Your thoughts and feelings.  What you usually think of when you hear the terms “Thought Crimes” or “Big Brother” are nothing compared to what Santorum wants.  Not even entitled to the sanctity of your own mind.  Nope, the government can legislate that too.

 

I’m sorry, you idiot, but you’re running for the nomination of the Republican Party which is supposedly the party of conservatives.  And true conservatism means you can live out any want or desire or whim you have so long as it does not harm another.  You can be as miserly, as sexual bizarre, as charitable or as boring as you want and as long as you do not directly hurt another person you can.  Because, unlike you Mr. Santorum, we believe in liberty, not a Christian version of Sharia.

    Ack!!! Loved the link you sent me. I feel like we keep going from scary to scarier! Holy cow!!! I really haven’t paid attention to Rick Santorum in the least little bit because I thought he was such a non-issue. I hope he goes back to being a non-issue!
    And with Michelle gone now, I’m curious if there are any candidates left that you can stomach?

    • For the last month Romney has been saying all the right things and has been using the justification of “I did the best I could with the very liberal legislature that I had.” He ain’t Reagan, but I can support him. And if we make sure the House stays Republican and get not only the Senate to Republican control but get some more Tea Party blood in there he would definitely go with the prevailing wind.
