Revised: Rick Santorum Certified the Winner in Iowa

January 19, 2012   ·   By   ·   0 Comments

Rick Santorum at Iowa Caucus party (Source; IowaPolitics.com)

As reported by The Des Moines Register, CNN and a growing number of media outlets, the Iowa caucus vote has finally been certified and Mitt Romney was NOT the winner.

Rick Santorum won by 34 votes. This is the final total:

Rick Santorum: 29,839
Mitt Romney: 29,805

Though they pooh-pooh the idea that this would have made a difference in New Hampshire, it isn’t hard to figure out that “He won!” gives a candidate tremendous momentum. It shouldn’t, but human nature is that many people want to back the perceived winner, and this gives the perceived winner an advantage and momentum.

If you’ve been buying into the propaganda being fed to us by the GOP elites and the “mainstream” media that Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney is the only Republican who can win, throw that yoke off and think about getting behind a real Republican like Rick Santorum.

Mitt Romney is nothing but a pale imitation of the poison currently occupying the White House, just a liberal with an “R” after his name.  If we are to turn our country back from the dangerous course we have been on, we need someone who will not just slow down the decay, but who will actually reverse it and repair the foundations.

The man who can do that is the one who, much to the consternation of the media and GOP elitists, really won in Iowa: Rick Santorum.

Resistance 44: A Bold New Conservative Initiative

Bob Ellis

Here are some young conservatives who aren't, unlike RINOs and other liberals, embarrassed to be identified with the traditional values that made America the greatest nation of all time. They are Resistance 44. They don't consider themselves "too sophisticated" to be seen embracing the ideals which separate us from every other nation in the world, or opposing those philosophies which would tear down all that we hold dear. This really restores some much-needed confidence for the future of our great republic.

The Obama Administration's new birth control mandate is necessary in order to ensure that the Sandra Flukes of America are free to enjoy a consequence-free sex life while simultaneously realizing their dreams of a government-subsidized college and career. What's at stake is nothing less than religious liberty guaranteed by the First Amendment. Whether one agrees with the Catholic position on birth control and abortion or not, the Church's opposition to both is rooted in religious principle, and its right to conduct its programs in accordance with this principle is protected by the First Amendment.

Like failed 1984 Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart daring reporters to follow him around in response to rumors that he was having an affair, only to have his swinging ways with Donna Rice exposed in tabloids across the nation, Obama has dared people to examine the truth about his fiscal record. So let’s take him up on it.

Obama’s unreal world

Rick Manning

Chairman Doc Hastings’s House Resources Committee released secret audio in which an Obama administration Interior Department official stunningly states, in connection to their rewrite of the 2008 Stream Buffer Rule, “this is not the real world, this is rulemaking” as a justification for not considering actual “conditions on the ground.” “This is not the real world, this is rulemaking” should be the new slogan of Obama’s Committee to Reelect the President.
