Imagine the Fox Business channel running the entire GOP presidential primary and allowing nothing except the economy to be discussed on TV, radio or in newspapers.
Imagine the GOP presidential primary with no mention of the murder of 35 million babies under Roe v. Wade. Imagine the entire presidential primary going by with same-sex marriage as a given, with not a single word said against it by any candidate. Imagine forcing Christian pharmacists to hand out pills to induce abortion and not a single word said against it by a presidential candidate. Imagine Christian schools being forced by the government to hire atheist teachers and Jewish schools being forced to hire Muslims to teach religion, and there being no one running for president that said "no." Imagine a presidential race where nothing but money mattered, and no one even stepped forward to be critical of legalizing prostitution or drugs. Imagine a presidential race where not a critical word was said of Shariah law.
Imagine all of the above and you would have a good vision of a presidential race without Rick Santorum.

Economic conservatives, just like libertarians and far-left Marxists, do not believe that the family or religion is important to society. For economic conservatives, politics and life are just about money. The economic conservatives believe that this would be a great society with virtually no government and everyone taking their money and doing whatever they want to do with it, including buying the sexual services of poorer women and young boys. To them drugs are just another form of commerce that hurts no one. Just ask Dr. Ron Paul … drugs are harmless. Ron Paul, as a doctor, knows that the majority of liver failures in the United States have something to do with drug use, but his ideology blinds him to the harm and death done to individuals and the destruction of families by drugs and prostitution. Libertarians and economic conservatives just don't care about families; they don't care if they fail or not – and they sure don't mind gays adopting kids for cash.
Meanwhile, socialists like Barack Obama want to actively work to destroy families. Strong families stand in the way of the socialist goal of having government be father and mother to the people. Liberals believe in the central government utopian model. Remember Hillary Clinton's book, "It Takes A Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us"? The theme of the book was simple: Families don't raise good kids, governments do.
That is a summary of the two major positions in America: economic conservatives who think money is the solution to all problems and families just don't matter; and socialists who want to do away with families because they are in the way of establishing utopia on Earth.
Then there is Rick Santorum and we social conservatives.

Here is some sales talk: You can't make a sale without telling people about the product. We social conservatives can never stop abortion in America unless we have high-profile spokesmen telling Americans that babies in the womb are human beings.
Right now, Rick Santorum is our main salesman. He is the guy out front saying that human life, the family and religious liberty are important. That message is coming across loud and clear, and he is changing the minds and the lives of Americans with his message. The message Rick Santorum is delivering is more important than winning or losing, although polls show he would beat Barack Obama in November. Telling the truth about the wrong direction of America can help to change our nation, and Rick Santorum is vividly telling the truth, a truth that liberals fears.
Social conservatives should be supporting Rick Santorum not only at the polls over the next few months of the primary process, but financially as well. Santorum is now the chief salesman of social conservatives, and it is the duty of social conservatives to keep him on the road!
