Rick Santorum: "Vote for Ron Paul" if you want limited government.

I thought this had to be a joke, but clicked on it anyway. And sure enough, he said it. I'd think this really needs to go viral....


Uploaded by CollectiveCheckup on Mar 12, 2012

A self-declared independent voter (but seemingly geared toward Ron Paul) attended a Rick Santorum event and asked what the reasoning was for Santorum choosing to vote for big government programs like Medicare Part D, No Child Left Behind, and five debt ceiling increases (which allowed government to borrow and spend more money).

In response and obviously backed into a corner given that no answer could be portrayed as conservative, Rick Santorum told the voter to just vote for Ron Paul then.

Puerto Rico would not be a waste at all!

First of all Puerto Ricans have shed more than their share in the wars the U.S has fought and continues to do so. And a lot of us are just as fed up with endless wars as everyone else.

And second of all most of us would like to see the Nanny state that has been created disappear or highly reformed at the very least.

well he cant be everywhere..

he sent one of his sons..

Now that the media lashed out their black out on RP more then ever its on us to take over the education and information of the masses.

It starts in the neighbourhoods.
These flyers are all free to print:

There's a vote for choice of Prez

There's a vote for Prez on Drudge
Vote Ron Paul

Here is a nice video of Rick!

Here is a nice video of Rick! Sums it up.


I guess he's not a total fool


He always comes across as

He always comes across as such an arrogant asshole, I'm so glad there's virtually no chance he will secure enough delegates. I look forward to watching his concession speech.

I live on the east coast...

Most people I know would never vote for Rick Santorum. I know one person that would vote for him and that person does nothing but preach to everyone.

Two points to make here:

1. It sucks that Ron is doing so well we have trolls on here - reading some of the posts it is clear the other campaigns have staff posting. Screw you all.
2. I think this says a lot - not just about Rick being the most pompous POS ever - but the fact that he REALLY seems to have an "it doesn't matter - don't you get it - I am on the side of the vote riggers and you are not" attitude. I mean - it is not like he was asking irrelevant personal questions. Those are legitimate questions for someone claiming to be so conservative. To just blow him off - and seem so angry doing it - just tells me he knows he doesn't need to earn votes - he is getting them no matter what.

He probably

Knows it's rigged so he gets 5 additional votes for every vote for Ron Paul.

Is Rick Santorum the dumbest guy to ever run for President?

...and get this far?

seriously he's off the rails even by his own standards he has no idea what he's talking about most of the time but somehow thinks he's popular because the media and GOP keep pushing him as their stooge.


the 'media assassins'

It's a tie between the two Ricks.

Rick Santorum and Rick Perry.

Most relevant post ever

In the beginning, Santorum was polling like what... around 5% or less? Something like that? Then the random GOP/media lovefest with him began, and now he's some sort of "winner?"

If the GOP were actually still a real party, then this guy would never even have made it on a single primary ballot. Seriously. Santorum is a joke.

Go ahead, GOP. Nominate this guy or Mittens. Be my guest. But don't act surprised or blame Ron Paul when they get absolutely D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-E-D by the Obama Industrial Complex and Campaign Machine, Inc. You'll have nobody to blame but yourselves, but you'll be too stupid to realize it (just look at Charlie Webster... that man is in charge of the Maine GOP, and his head might as well be filled with sand or pebbles or diet coke or anything else that's not a brain).

it feels like watching the Truman show with Santorum

he's the only one who is oblivious to whats going on


the 'media assassins'

I dunno

Jimmy Carter was pretty dumb. I think Santorum is in the same general category, though.

Ron Paul pamphlets free download

Ron Paul brochures can be downloaded for free from the following website. They are written from an evangelical perspective and are very effective on Christians who really want to know and understand the truth. Give them a try!

It was Santorum's way of saying Buzz Off!

Santorum is not interested in the average American and does not want to talk about real issues. The difference between Santorum and Ron Paul is like night and day. Santorum is campaigning to see if the powers that be will choose him to be the interface between the people and the elite. So, yes, everyone should see this and take Santorum's arrogant and snidely delivered advice. Vote for Ron Paul!


Certainly not a compliment

I agree on the "buzz off" comment. Santorum certainly wasn't giving a compliment to Dr. Paul or agreeing with Dr. Paul's policies by saying go vote for Ron Paul. Based on the points the questioner was making, Santorum figured it out pretty quickly that he was probably a Ron Paul supporter. So he arrogantly just told him to take a hike, go vote for Ron Paul. I don't think we could legitimately use this to convince others that Santorum supports Dr. Paul in any way. Santorum has and will continue to say many things to damage his campaign. I just don't think this is one of them.

Rick Santorum is hostile to the Tea Party.

Something I noticed from the very beginning of the debates was that Santorum didn't want to associate himself with anything that had to do with the Tea Party. Any time the candidates tried to out-Tea Party each other on fiscal issues, Rick Santorum was quick to point out that he was more liberal than everyone else. It wasn't until AFTER the Iowa caucus that he tried to associate himself with the Tea Party and even then it was only marginal. Santorum despises fiscal hawkishness and the movement that most associates itself with it. (*That being said, half of the self-identified TPers are no more Tea Party than Mark Levin.)

And yet the Tea Party people are kissing his posterior!

And from what I can see/tell, it looks like the majority of the Tea Party voters have been kissing his a$$. Them and the majority of the religious right. I had hoped that this voting block would have supported Ron Paul. It seemed that Dr. Paul was the most natural candidate for that group. I knew the religious right would follow whoever their masters told them to follow. History shows that there is and always have been a good percentage of the population that are merely sheep.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to not support Ron Paul!

And I thought nobody could

And I thought nobody could surpass Perry's gaffles but I'm proven wrong. Rick has brought joy to our lives. Thanks for telling the truth. THANK YOU.

instantly epic

"Vote for Ron Paul, that's what you should do."
--Rick Santorum

What more is there to say??

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

This should be in a campaign ad

Seriously, the campaign should contact the owner of this vid and get it put into a commercial.

That alone would send this Frothy Beast back to the 5 percent swamp he artificially emerged from only days before Iowa.

Someone disagrees with you

Someone disagrees with you and you ignore. ...wow...

Now, What I would do, say, if OWS came to my rally and I was Santorum, I wouldn't have just kept giving a speech that no one could hear. I would STOP my speech, and say wow this is great! This is what America is all about! Free Speech!

And then, I, as Santorum, would have tried to use the opportunity to address their concerns. I'm not trying to give Frothy advice. But I mean, how ridiculous "elections" have become where if you disagree with me, then I ignore you and run away.

Get a backbone! Be AMERICAN!

My God's not dead; he's surely alive. And he's living on the inside roaring like a lion.

Voted down

for the language.

Let's keep it above board here... plus women generally don't like that kinda talk. We aren't exactly hitting it out of the park with the women.

Oh yes we are, Real women

Oh yes we are, Real women think; and they also support ron paul. Just that many women are sound asleep and/or brainwashed.

Don't hate the player, hate the game!!!

What are you talking about?

I see no votes down, and I see no language issues.

But thanks for playing.
