Last week Rick Santorum addressed the Centre County Republican Party and asked them to support him. During the course of his speech Rick actually had the gall to compare putting a Santorum bumper sticker on your car to serving your country in Iraq or Afghanistan.
And no, Rick was NOT talking about a "Support the Troops" bumper sticker, he was absolutely talking about a "Rick Santorum" bumper sticker.

doesn't it look like he's sporting a pony-tail every time he looks to his left?
That's actually Charles Johnson's ponytail. He's standing behind Santorum playing Spyro Gyra tunes on his bass to lend some hipster cred to the campaign.
It seems that Rick may have been infected by the "me-centered popular culture" that he speaks of. He now believes that we can serve our country by serving him. Isn't that the definition of self-serving?
His self-serving remarks are not MERELY completely disgusting, they are BEYOND disgusting.
it's the definition of something more distasteful, self-importance.
real Christians know their place.
No doubt about it... Santorum is making a confession when he starts off this commentary talking about being self-absorbed!
That sissy little frat boy is one of the most self-absobed fools in Congress today. I hope the citizens of PA have the good taste to send that worm packing.
And of course, the audience stood up and cheered, shouting, "Give me one! Give me one! I'll do anything for my country!"
Wow. Just - wow.
A man with absolutely no shame whatsoever. A man who compares supporting his campaign to serving in the armed forces.
How could ANYONE vote for...this?
It wasn't just what he said but HOW he said it that made me sick to my stomach.
Do Not Put a Bumper Sticker on for this
Crook and Liar...what a coward
I got inspired to make Ricky a bumpersticker too.
Not very inspired or original, I'm afraid, but then Rick Santorum isn't very inspiring or original either. Religious nuts and zealots all look about the same.
Anyway, my sticker is at: http://www.cafepress.com/santorum_drip
I made a free shop for ricky, since I didn't want to soil my main anti-gop shop: http://www.cafepress.com/notsubtle
So the guy telling me to plaster his name on my bumper is telling me not to be so self interested?
Just wanted to make sure.
I'm a veteran - honorably discharged. I enlisted and served, during a different war. I'm not a hero. When I was in I didn't volunteer for combat duty, like John Kerry did. I wasn't put in a position where I faced extenuating service, like John McCain faced. I didn't lose multiple limbs, like Max Cleland. What I did do is show up and do my duty everyday, unlike the President of the United States.
Mr. Santorum's statement doesn't surprise me. Look at history and literature. There have always been and always will be people like him.
What is far more troubling are the crowd of people who applaud this shameful nonsense.
Thank goodness there are still some people left who can see through this crap. Unfortunately being able to see through it doesn't mean that it can be stopped. History is littered with societal garbage heaps that could no longer stand the weight their own corruption.
Bravo! I wish other veterans had such moral clarity as you. I'm sure most do but you articulated my frustration with our present administration so well. Have you ever thought about politics? You should.
Bush/Cheney and their GOP yes-men in congress set a great example of selfishness.
Corrupt chickenhawks one and all!
I don't see any gray in santorum's hair and they've raised the enlistment age. Why doesn't he go out and serve?
That's truly incredible. Who are these people who applaud for this display of mental instability?
this is surreal.
it's an episode of the twilight zone, right?
Any second, a little demon will crawl out of his ear and he'll wake up, as if out of a trance, not remembering a thing.
truly a more apt example of why the excretions of a certain sexual act share his name couldn't possibly exist.
I spent 4 years in the Army. I too volunteered. I also have been to several televised shows and learned that an audience can be trained in advance to applaud when the blue light turns on. Santorum is an indefensible wingnut. The audience may have been paid to show support in front of the cameras, it is impossible to know there real motivation.
Craig, regrettably, I have little doubt those folks are true believers in Rick's B.S. The man makes me ashamed to say I'm from Pennsylvania.
If the audience was a bunch of paid flacks hired to applaud on cue, that's worse than Santorum's pathetic asskiss. What tools for The Tool.
Jesus, God Almighty, what a pathetic little self serving chickenhawk this man is. Hey Rick, if you really want to do something patriotic, why don't you go enlist?

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Where do you get this info?
This info on who served and who didn't is common knowledge, although even with the facts as they are in black and white, the GOP sheep still bray about "honor" "courage" and "service" even though these terms are just hollow words that have never and will never apply to them. If Jesus were a Democrat, Swift Boat Apostles for Truth would make ads saying that old JC made up his Crucifiction record and that all that stuff about water into wine was just just the work of a good PR department.
"He said he died on the cross, but Jesus Christ, I caught him coming out of a cave not three friggin days later.... PAID FOR BY SWIFT BOAT APOSTLES FOR TRUTH"
I think I have to womit.. This is just - stunning. I knew it was lopsided. But seeing it like that is really heart-breaking.
Thank you (even though I feel really bad right now). Dems should repeat that on every f--ing occasion. Just spewing out names until the right wing pundit interrupts them. This is a generation of criminal scumbags!
Pat Buchanan doesn't fit on this list. Despite right wing creds, he is fiercely opposed to the war in Iraq.
Congradulations for listing all the republicans that didnt serve, I could easily list the democrats that didnt serve also. The fact is that you are full of partisan bullcrap and self indulging stupidity. Why dont you get educated and debate the issues instead of say pointless political crap. It doesnt matter whether you served or didnt, regarding how well you serve your country in public service. You also forgot Bob Dole and John Warner jackass...just put political spin on everything, itll get you nowhere.
Speaking of education, you might want to check your dictionary. It's congraTulations!
The "faith-based summit" itself was sponsored by Watts (R-Okla.), Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and other top congressional Republicans, but efforts to promote it at the grassroots level were turned over to a Moon organization.
Why is the Republican Party working hand in glove with Moon front groups? The partnership stems largely from Moon's phenomenal ability to make inroads in GOP and Religious Right circles. Despite his unorthodox theological views Moon teaches that he is the new Messiah, sent by God to complete the failed mission of Jesus Moon has had little difficulty penetrating the upper echelons of American conservatism.
While a number of Republican-aligned private organizations have promoted President George W. Bush's religion funding scheme, only Moon won an official relationship with the Republican leadership to rally grassroots forces on behalf of the "faith-based" summit. This enhanced status enabled him to do grassroots political organizing and religious recruitment with the apparent blessing of Bush and his GOP allies in Congress
When I look at this specimen and nearly all other Republicans I can't believe that they got America believing that they are somehow the strong defender party. They all look like private school manicured frat boys.
Republicans are just knee-jerk military spenders and Rhetoricists (if that's a word). Defense is just a buzzword in their P.R. campaign. They know soldiering like Jeff Bezos knows writing. Just how to sell it.
On a more positive note, I'd like to add that Saxby Chambliss is an embarrasment to the flag.
With that logic his next move will be imploring a rapt audience to save the human race by giving him a blowjob.
Santorum Sodomized Me!!!
He is interfering in the marketplace. The car magnet manufacturers are going to be upset.
Mr. Santorum, may I suggest a new theme song for your re-election campaign? Try Dennis Leary's "I'm an Asshole"...
Yes, the song "Asshole" would be perfect-very funny!
Is there a transcript or anything in the video documenting that Santorum was referring to one of his campaign bumper stickers? Could he have been referring to a sticker that said something generic about supporting the troops?
When will the American people come to realize that people who trot out GOD and COUNTRY are most likely stealing and lying and cheating?
Wrapping oneself in the flag and using the name of GOD in vain should be recognized for what it is: hypocrisy of the first order.
Instead we've got to sappiest BS getting cheers and applause, while the sheep turn the Bill of Rights over to corporate shills and liars.
Wave that flag, join the military, but NEVER surrender to BS artists like Rick Santorum.
His campaign must be getting desperate if he has to implore people to put a bumper sticker on their car.
Santorum vaguely reminds me of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.
Oh, C'mon real Republicans don't enlist. That's what poor and non-white people do.
Real Republicans support the war by not enlisting. Just like cutting student aid and Pell grants improves student funding, and side stepping the constitution to do illegal things is actually acting in accordance with the constitution.
Ignorance is strength.
I need another one quick!
Have to put it on my manure spreader, the other one wouldn't stick--kept jumping off.
Watching this, I have to wonder - how stupid do you have to be to fall for this crap? How can anyone fall for this? Does he even beleive what he's saying? I know this is not new in polotics, but to see it is just... man.
ok he is an idiot but why did he not wear the whole fess parker hat instead of just the racoon tail?
Why do people continue to vaguely support "The Frothy Mixture" (Santorum) and other shameless charlatans like him?
Because they don't know any better. People are being informed in droves by the likes of FAUX News and radio drug addict Rush Limpbough . . . and on the rare occasion that an inconvenient fact intrudes upon their reality, people tend to dismiss the fact rather than re-thinking their years of video and audio "conditioning".
Republican sheep aren't "evil" . . . they're just stupid and lazy.
I notice that little Ricky here also doesn't mention that a)his "wartime President" has NEVER asked the nation to sacrifice in any specific way for his war, be it to enlist, cut back on gas, or accept a tax increase (or, worse, give up their tax cuts!). His command to a grateful nation after 9/11? Go shopping! So who's responsible for our selfish attitudes? Popular culture, is it?
...and b) that most of the troops in Iraq right now DID NOT volunteer "in a time of war" -- they were peace time reservists, many for the National Guard, who signed up to pay for college. And now, they are being retained in service long past their committment requirements via the "back door draft," because people ARE NOT enlisting to fight in this war. (The army itself admits that it is stretched to the breaking point right now.)
All things considered, though -- if I had to make a choice, I'd enlist in the army before I put a Santorum bumper sticker on my car.
Where's PA's Vets. As a life member of the VFW, DAV, and the American Legion, Vietnam era vet, I am ashame of the way these non-serving asses wrap themseleves in the flag and send someone else's kid to war.
Typical Rick "Come play with your dead brother" Santorum, if Rick Santorum is so patrotic, why does not he go fight the war?
What an ass. Vote No to PAWS and vote this buthead out of office we dont need two faced people in there we got enough of that.
Does he suddenlt sound like Clinton, or is it just me.
Maybe he's been studing the masters.
snake oil salesman.
like a slick, Amway recruiter.
or perhaps, just a plain old snake.
Whenever i feel the need to vomit,which is quite often these days,i merely take a look at Santorum's
stupid childish looking face and the puke begins to flow instantly.Now it looks like all i'll have to do is look at some conservative morons suv in front of me.Excellent.
this man is a sick puppy. imus should run the video on his morning show.
Yuck. I will have a hard timegetting my vomit off the keyboard
That moose-jawed asshole ought to change his last name to "Sanitarium." That's where the wimp/limp dick should be instead of Congress!!
No matter how stupid Santorum is, the Democrats will find a way to drop the ball and lose.
OMG! I've been reading your comments and I have to say: EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU IS A COWARD! Rick's RIGHT -- he's not asking for much. And you can't even drag your sorry yellow asses off the couch to put a BUMPER STICKER on your car?! It's people like you that make me so ashamed to travel on my American PASSPORT!
Subject: .The Bankruptcy of The United States
United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303
THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!
Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:
"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11.. Members of Congress are
official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt
entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth
hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a
coroner's report that will lead to our demise.
It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has
been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1,
Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and
insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 - Joint
Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause
dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official
capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and
Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal
Government exists today in name only.
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International
Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International
Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now
operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers.
With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the
receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the
United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an
established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America. This
act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office
of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor of the International
Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section H.R. 13955 reads in part:
"The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing
the United States."
Gold and silver were such a powerful money during the founding of the
united states of America, that the founding fathers declared that only gold
or silver coins can be "money" in America. Since gold and silver coinage
were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions, they were stored in
banks and a claim check was issued as a money substitute. People traded
their coupons as money, or "currency." Currency is not money, but a money
substitute. Redeemable currency must promise to pay a dollar equivalent in
gold or silver money. Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) make no such promises,
and are not "money." A Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of the
federal United States government, not "money?' The federal United States
government and the U.S. Congress were not and have never been authorized by
the Constitution for the united states of America to issue currency of any
kind, but only lawful money, -gold and silver coin.
It is essential that we comprehend the distinction between real money and
paper money substitute. One cannot get rich by accumulating money
substitutes, one can only get deeper into debt. We the People no longer have
any "money." Most Americans have not been paid any "money" for a very long
time, perhaps not in their entire life. Now do you comprehend why you feel
broke? Now, do you understand why you are "bankrupt," along with the rest of
Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) are unsigned checks written on a closed
account. FRNs are an inflatable paper system designed to create debt through
inflation (devaluation of currency). when ever there is an increase of the
supply of a money substitute in the economy without a corresponding increase
in the gold and silver backing, inflation occurs.
Inflation is an invisible form of taxation that irresponsible governments
inflict on their citizens. The Federal Reserve Bank who controls the supply
and movement of FRNs has everybody fooled. They have access to an unlimited
supply of FRNs, paying only for the printing costs of what they need. FRNs
are nothing more than promissory notes for U.S. Treasury securities
(T-Bills) - a promise to pay the debt to the Federal Reserve Bank.
There is a fundamental difference between "paying" and "discharging" a
debt. To pay a debt, you must pay with value or substance (i.e. gold,
silver, barter or a commodity). With FRNs, you can only discharge a debt.
You cannot pay a debt with a debt currency system. You cannot service a debt
with a currency that has no backing in value or substance. No contract in
Common law is valid unless it involves an exchange of "good & valuable
consideration." Un-payable debt transfers power and control to the sovereign
power structure that has no interest in money, law, equity or justice
because they have so much wealth already.
Their lust is for power and control. Since the inception of central
banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.
The Federal Reserve System is based on the Canon law and the principles of
sovereignty protected in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In fact,
the international bankers used a "Canon Law Trust" as their model, adding
stock and naming it a "Joint Stock Trust." The U.S. Congress had passed a
law making it illegal for any legal "person" to duplicate a "Joint Stock
Trust" in 1873. The Federal Reserve Act was legislated post-facto (to 1870),
although post-facto laws are strictly forbidden by the Constitution. [1:9:3]
The Federal Reserve System is a sovereign power structure separate and
distinct from the federal United States government. The Federal Reserve is a
maritime lender, and/or maritime insurance underwriter to the federal United
States operating exclusively under Admiralty/Maritime law. The lender or
underwriter bears the risks, and the Maritime law compelling specific
performance in paying the interest, or premiums are the same.
Assets of the debtor can also be hypothecated (to pledge something as a
security without taking possession of it.) as security by the lender or
underwriter. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that the interest on the
debt was to be paid in gold. There was no stipulation in the Federal Reserve
Act for ever paying the principle.
Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property, free
and clear of any liens or mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act (1913)
"Hypothecated" all property within the federal United States to the Board of
Governors of the Federal Reserve, -in which the Trustees (stockholders) held
legal title. The U.S. citizen (tenant, franchisee) was registered as a
"beneficiary" of the trust via his/her birth certificate. In 1933, the
federal United States hypothecated all of the present and future properties,
assets and labor of their "subjects," the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to
the Federal Reserve System.
In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal United
States corporation all the credit "money substitute" it needed. Like any
other debtor, the federal United States government had to assign collateral
and security to their creditors as a condition of the loan. Since the
federal United States didn't have any assets, they assigned the private
property of their "economic slaves", the U.S. citizens as collateral against
the un-payable federal debt. They also pledged the unincorporated federal
territories, national parks forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit
organizations, as collateral against the federal debt. All has already been
transferred as payment to the international bankers.
Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal
roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no
rights to hold allodial title to property. Once again, We the People are the
tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the
guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. We the people have exchanged one master
This has been going on for over eighty years without the "informed
knowledge" of the American people, without a voice protesting loud enough.
Now it's easy to grasp why America is fundamentally bankrupt.
Why don't more people own their properties outright?
Why are 90% of Americans mortgaged to the hilt and have little or no assets
after all debts and liabilities have been paid? Why does it feel like you
are working harder and harder and getting less and less?
We are reaping what has been sown, and the results of our harvest is a
painful bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property, precious
liberties, and a way of life. Few of our elected representatives in
Washington, D.C. have dared to tell the truth. The federal United States is
bankrupt. Our children will inherit this un-payable debt, and the tyranny to
enforce paying it.
America has become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial
credit and its reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is an
undeclared economic war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the most
corrupt order! Wake up America! Take back
There seems to be a problem with Santorum's web page, or he is trying to hide something. The search feature on his senat web page seems to work fine for most searches, but if you enter "intelligent design" you get no hits. If you enter "Darwin" you get a couple hits, some of which include the phrase "intelligent design".
If you do a google search for ("intelligent design" site:santorum.senate.gov), you get several hits.
Why does the web site find none of these? This seems less than forthcoming, and probably takes specific programing so the information cannot easily be retrieved. Why hide the information?
How is it that someone who posits a blatantly anti-gay agenda looks, speaks and acts so blanantly gay. Rickie needs to level with America and finally come out of the closet.
This clip is interesting. Watching it analytically, it seems as though Rick is
studying and trying to practice the "down home", laid back, person to person oratory techniques of Bill Clinton. The poor dumb bastard thinks he's making friends of his audience.
Rick Santorum is an embarrassment to all PA residents. He preaches hate and intolerance in the name of Jesus who taught love and re-enfranchisement of all. Unfortunately, Casey is not much better. Our country is heading backward, not forward. Until we respect all people, all lifestyles, all religions,all cultures... we are not truly a democracy. No wonder the rest of the world looks upon us negatively.
So what? We are called to vote, which is to serve our country. There are different ways of serving. And if we don't vote and get involved in the democratic process, we have no right to complain.
Where is the requirement that you had to serve in the military to be a Senator?
If you think he is doing such a poor job, why don't I see your names in the race?
Rather than citicizing maybe you should come up with ways to solve the problem!
Rather than wasting your time on a negative Website such as this, maybe you should use that yime to create a life for you and your family and your family to come!
I agree with #60 Joyce, GET OUT AND VOTE! If you don't, KEEP QUIET ABOUT IT!
i had a "george w. bush, american errorist" bumper sticker on my car. i was rear-ended, smack dab in w's face, to the tune of $1200+ in damage. the cop said, "i don't see any damage." and walked away. i guess the cop was enjoying her "freedom" to be a sadist. i live in philly, vote regularly, and need my fellow constituents to study up, step up and help me take back my country. rick santorum's political success is a testament to the fact that "the dummying down of america" has been a rousing success.
Wow, am I glad that we have all these defenders of truth, justice and the Soros, I mean American way! Yes, please give me Bob Casey, because he stands for . . . oh, that's right, no one know what he stands for. Soros, MoveOn.org and the Clintons don't have their hand up his ass yet to make his lips move and puke the company line. Casey is a joke.
As to who served, and then to include Clinton in the "honor roll" of Democrats looses all credibility. You conveniently forget Bob Dole and George HW Bush, both heroes and mdeal winners. But then again, that's the liberal way . . . bullshit, bullshit, bullshit with no sense of truth or reality.
I hope that the Democarats win, so that we can pay more taxes, have terrorists on our doorstep, see inflation take off, gas prices go to $4 a gallon, mating earthworms protected, every one feel "good" about themselves, homosexuals and radical Islamists taking control of America, and, well, you liberals get the picture. HATE AMERICAN FIRST, HATE AMERICA FIRST - the same thing you have been chanting for the past 6 years!
What would a defeat of those "horrible" Republicans mean? Well, obviously it would bring in the Democrats. This country does not deserve anything that disastrous. The Democrat's petty obstructionism and irresponsible demagoguery in wartime disqualifies them for national leadership, when a nuclear Iran and Korea, as well as terrorists loom on the horizon. Americans cannot put in power a party that accepts the proposition that global warming is a greater threat than terrorism, that thinks Wal-Mart is a plague on the poor and that wants to repeal the job-creating, economic-boosting and deficit-cutting Bush tax cuts. We cannot put in power a party that thinks death is a taxable event and that success should be punished. The Dems would also deny us access to energy reserves, offshore and in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, while thinking energy independence means building windmills and hugging caribou. Let us hope the Dems wake up Nov. 8th to find the Republicans still in power and Sen. Joe Lieberman getting a congratulatory phone call from President Bush.
I see nothing wrong w/ Senator Santorum's comment referring to the bumper sticker. As is the Liberal way, take and twist something to fit your own rhetoric. I took it as a way for people who can't serve(i.e. age, disabilities, or other reasons) to make a difference and support their country. How about the Dow setting records for 2 weeks now! After inheriting a recession from Clinton, the 9-11 attacks and Katrina the economy is moving in the right direction. It is amazing what tax cuts can do! Gov. Rendell wants to raise the sales tax to 6.5% or 7.0%. Is that in favor of the working families? National Security is first on my agenda for this reason, the object of 9/11 was to cripple our economy, which it did. If it happens again it could affect my job as well as your's! We need to be united as a country, just like we were in the 80"s under Reagan! That will never happen until the left decides to work for the people instead of their own political agendas! God Bless America!
Hey #19! It is funny how in the midst of bashing the Republicans on the war in Iraq, you failed to mention the meaningless war JFK got us into! Remember? It was called Vietnam. Yeah, really! We were there 10 years, 58,000 soldiers died and over 300,000 were wounded. Oh by the way, we didn't accomplish anything, they are still there. Shall we do the math? 5,800 troops died a year! It took a Republican to get us out of that war. Richard Nixon. Look at this! He was a Navy Lieutenant Commander in WWII! Mr. Statistics missed that one. I guess your point was that military service makes you an expert on war. By the looks of Vietnam, I don't think so.
YOU GUYS ARE "MOON-BATS". SANTORUM IS THE ONLY ONE THAT REALLY GETS IT AND YOU'RE ABOUT TO VOTE HIM OUT AND PUT A DORK LIKE CASEY IN????
Thank you for th insite. I am looking for true republican to support in 08. With the information that you have provided, it is clear if Santorum runs, I should support him.
It is clear that he will be a true conservative. Not a Dem calling himself a conservative
