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.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Why, yes, I think I shall!

Thank you Rick for clarifying that for me!!!

BTW, had an anybody-but-Obummer guy all riled up today because I told him I'm voting for Ron Paul in November whether his name is on the ballot or I have to write it in.

Instead of urging me to vote for Willard, he should be voting for Dr. Paul and urging others to do the same. The only wasted vote is the vote for a d-bag, especially a d-bag you don't actually like!

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.


I log in tonight and this was the first post I read. I busted my gut over this! Now you see why PA couldn't wait to get rid of this nut lol!

But the vast majority, even in PA, won't see this to remember what a clown this guy really was/is.

While on topic, I met a guy just tonight who voted Ron last election, but was supporting Santorium this election. Fortunately I had all my handouts in the car and set him straight. Yep, he's back on the Paul Express!

Just to follow up

Just to follow up on my own post...

MittRickNewt are so pathetically shallow that it takes a mere 5 minutes to convert someone over to Paul. GOP knows this to be fact. I wish I could take a 3 week leave just to mope around the streets and malls all day long, it would be a cinch to wrap this entire district!

Keep getting the word out!!!!!

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

this guys!

its enough to flyer bomb your neighbourhood, shopping mall with flyers that point out the obvious fact.
Everyone can do this even if you are not good at speaking about it a RP flyer for an open mind is a win for RP.

These flyers are all free to print:

This needs to be a 15 second

This needs to be a 15 second campaign ad.

or get it to Leno

Isn't Ron Paul on Jay Leno this week.. that should be good enough for the nightly shows to poke fun at.

nice video...

also if anyone cares to repost this video of rick santorum saying iran only wants nukes to protect themselves and they wont bomb israel then go ahead... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKed8OQqUXY ...he sais it at 5:55

Thanks for sipping straight to the important admission

I don't want to listen to warmongering, s thanks for the direct link to the exact place where he messes up. That admission goes completely against the regular story of Iran wanting a nuke so it could either bomb Israel or mail it to the US and blow up the US. Of course, he goes back into the deep end right after that, but that's a nice hole he accidently slip through.

WOOOHOOO!!! Never thought I'd say it... but I agree w/ Ricky!

Somebody PLEASE make this into a new commercial! or maybe one of those remixes that goes viral on youtube. whatever. everything. ... i mean, wow. that's just perfect. :-D

Unfortuately, this will not be marketed...

or made into an ad by any of the super pacs.

The message is clear when a rival says to go vote for ron paul if you want limited government. Yet, there will be no money and voice put behind this message.


Does Santorum ALWAYS appear

Does Santorum ALWAYS have to appear smug in every video?

If you walk blindly through life, you will run into a lot of walls.

Send to Drudge

That was awesome. I laughed out loud.

Yo Rick,!

Stop emailing me, I want limited Constitutional govt, my support is for Dr. Paul..

Working to free the hemp seed - Thanks to Congressman Paul's efforts HR 1831. Peace

Make this al viral :P

Yep, Santorum might have said it out of spite (Dunno, he has a record of saying things right off the bat without thinking i.e. comment on JFK) But it's worth saying that this guy said it like it is sometimes. then oops'ed about them later XD

(Neo-con are pulling their hair with him, if only he could be as smooth as Romney, they'd be all over him, if only Romney would be less flip floppy, they wouldn't need Santorum for the distraction, Geez, GOP - establishment, such a dilemma eh?)

Let's get this out! Retweet! Facebook! You Tube! Santorum Agrees that if you want limited government, vote for Ron Paul XD

Concerned about big government problems like no child left behind, socialized medicine, the national debt??? Santorum says vote Ron Paul.

As much as I wish he'd said it,

He didn't. He was telling the person crashing the signing to vote for Ron Paul. I agree with the guy confronting him, but I've personally never understood or endorsed the crashing of the other candidates' shindigs. Santorum was merely fed-up with being bum-rushed by Ron Paul supporters when he does a public event. So, instead of getting angry at the supporter (or offering a reason for his big government vote), he just says "Vote for Ron Paul" because he is pretty sure that guy asking the question IS a Ron Paul supporter (and he was). This is hardly what the OP states. But, use it however you like.
