How can anyone in good conscience contribute in any way to your cause when you unashamedly betrayed your principles regarding the sanctity of life without exceptions ( http://www.ontheissues.org/Archive/2011_Straw_Poll_Rick_Santorum.ht... ) and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman ( http://stevedeace.com/news/iowa-politics/santorum-is-right-romney-i... ) by deciding to back Mitt Romney in the last presidential election, after running against him for the Republican nomination in defense of those same principles? Mitt Romney during his entire political career, including the past presidential campaign, had no scruples about sending mixed messages to the American people for the sake of gaining votes and financial support, when his past record in public office clearly identified him as supporting abortion on demand and same sex unions.
You concluded your 2012 RNC speech with the following words: "In November we have a chance to vote for life and liberty, not dependency. A vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will put our country back in the hands of leaders who understand what America can and, for the sake of our children, must be to keep the dream alive."
Instead, by supporting Mitt Romney in the last election, you also, like those who voted for Barak Obama, voted and encouraged others to vote for dependency on the pro abortion and childless union choices of godless men against God's unalienable rights to life and liberty, including our most fundamental and important God-given institution of marriage between one man and one woman.
You owe God and the American people a public apology for betraying your principles and your promises to them.

Subject: “For Santorum, The Fight Goes On”
With disarmingly cheerful ferocity, he relishes combat in what he calls "a two-front civil war" within the GOP. The party is, he says, in danger of becoming "a one-legged stool." The "Eastern establishment types" want to saw off the cultural conservatism leg, concentrating on economic issues. The rising libertarian faction, exemplified by Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, wants to saw off the strong foreign policy leg. Furthermore, Santorum says, "Americans are not ready for a dramatic withdrawal of government from their lives" of the sort many tea party types advocate.
This self-described "blue-collar Republican" insists, "We are not the anti-government party." Government has a role in the creation of jobs for the many "who are not going to college."Santorum became a senator at age 36, a member of the Republican Senate leadership at 42 and an ex-senator at 48, when in 2006 he lost by 17 points in his bid for a third term. In 2011, however, this devout Catholic thought the other candidates for the nomination were perfunctory in their embrace of the social issues - principally, opposition to abortion - so he headed to all 99 Iowa counties.Each rival had a brief moment as "not Romney"; Santorum's moment came, serendipitously, on the eve of the Iowa caucuses. In the first vote tabulation he lost by just eight votes. Sixteen days later, a revised tally showed that he had defeated Romney by 34 votes, 29,839 to 29,805. He believes he might have won the nomination if the first headlines had said "Santorum wins." He won 10 more states, but his campaign essentially ended when he lost by seven points in Wisconsin, where he had hoped to prove he could win where evangelical Christians were relatively thin on the ground.Looking to 2016, Santorum rightly says Republicans "have got to work on the hopeful and optimistic side" of politics. But he wants to compel a troubling conversation the nation would rather not have. Read the full article here.
