True Conservatism is Dead

And Rick Santorum is to blame

How can anybody still hold the belief that the current crop of leaders within the GOP still stand for limited government? They're spending like drunken sailors, there is no accountability in government, and they keep pushing the Dobson-Falwell-Robertson agenda for a so-called Christain version of Saudi Arabia here in the good ole' USA. His latest quote:

"This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don't think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn't get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn't get involved in cultural issues. You know, people should do whatever they want." - Senator Rick Santorum

Holy Crap! Dude! I can't even get my mind around this. In my work I've met many, many very conservative people, ones that probably will never accept things like gay marriage, shacking up or other so-called "Life-Style Choices*". But underneath it all, liberal or conservative, the average America wants one thing above all else, for the federal government to leave them the F#ck alone. I think this would apply to the good folks in Pennsylvannia as well.

I don't want the government telling me what car to buy, if I can own a gun, if I have to recycle or not, that I can't build a cabin on some property cause some puddle counts as a 'wetland'. And I ESPECIALLY don't want the government to force me to cough up a marriage license to buy a pack of condoms, dirty magazie or bust down my door for (insert non-missionary-position sex act here). These comments are beyond the pale and beyond the 'values' and thinking of just about anyone I know in Pennsylvannia. Please dear citizens, end this national embarassment!
