Good lord, he actually says that in the video below. He's going to create a group that certifies college professors as conservative...

He starts this madness at the 26:30

Link (craziness)


Then he goes on about giving government control of the federal reserve.
 
2012-02-19 12:13:40 PM  
So, he wants to shut down the public education system and destroy higher education as well.

Sounds like a good way to build a totalitarian state.

Why does Rick hate a free America?
 
2012-02-19 12:14:52 PM  
That sounds like a gigantic government interference into personal lives. How very Republican.
 
2012-02-19 12:15:33 PM  
Wow. Wow. Political tests for fields of knowledge. That's something right out of the Soviet play book. So, he's now like combining an Iranian Mullah and a Soviet commissar. Both of those things are so American, you know?

That's farked up big time

That's what the Baathists did. WTF Santorum?

but how can Santorum say he's a 'small government conservative' when he keeps advocating for larger government and more government intrusion into every aspect of society (and people's private lives)?

I don't get it. people vote for shiat like this? you don't have to be a genius to understand hypocrisy...and santorum reeks of bullshiat.

Santorum does not believe in small government, he just says that shiat to gather favor from the libertarians in the GOP

He believes in small government in helping people such as in providing education, making sure people aren't starving, and keeping them alive (after they are born, of course), and investing in the nation's infrastructure. He believes the government should not be involved in regulating business or stopping the wealthy from raping the rest of the nation/world. That's where he gets his claim that he believes in small government.

He is not small government in the machinery of killing people or in control of people's personal lives/information. He's very much big government when it comes to the military and controlling what you do personally. He's very much big government in wanting to control what information you are allowed to know. But, by wanting to cut social services and infrastructure development, he gets to walk around wearing the small government badge, because that's all modern Republicans are really referring to when they say "small government." They in no way, shape, or form mean they want to government to be less involved in dictating your personal beliefs and life.

Of course he does, he said so. This is the Republican idea of small government.

this is a GREAT idea! we should also make CEOs and stockbrokers sign loyalty oaths! lets make sure EVERYONE loves america! Obviously, we should also put a political officer into every corporation as well, just to be sure everyone is in compliance.
 
2012-02-19 12:51:11 PM

they are not directly influencing the children of America, controlling what they say, write, learn, and do. That argument is totally off-base.

And neither will our political officers in various corporations! they will merely monitor the CEO and board of directors for compliance with loyality oaths. oh, and they'll coordinate with Homeland Security as well...you know...for safety! After all, corporations have NOTHING to fear from the government!

Safety and security - that should be their motto. and if you have any problems or concerns that your company might be acting in an unpatriotic manner, why - I am sure that any complaints will be handled quicky and confidentialy! There is no reason to fear your political officer - he is there for YOUR safety and protection citizen!

I never cared for your odd method of teaching either, where you play TV shows for your students. It sure sounds like you are skipping out on your duties and abdicating that to TV shows.

They should report to a Committee for State Security. But abbreviated somehow, possibly in Russian.

I love the ideals of America. Equality before the law. Liberty. Justice.

That does not mean I automatically love anyone who wraps themselves in an American flag, proclaims how much THEIRS is the right way to love America and any other way is obviously hating America, and then proceeds to run on a platform of denying equality before the law, liberty, and justice (which is pretty much describes the entire group of modern day Republican candidates but especially Santorum and Gingrich).

I had a professor in my east coast liberal elitist university who was a hard core conservative. Named as an Ambassador under Ronald Reagan, a big wig in the GOP's intellectual elite (this was in the 90s, when such a thing existed*).

He used to sharpen his teeth on teenage liberals. You want to defend Clinton's* policies to him, you needed to come with a good argument. I watched this guy tear into people who couldn't defend his argument.

One of my friends wrote his final paper praising Jimmy Carter and the Camp David Accords. He did some meticulous research, backed up every single one of his arguments with citations and facts- and this was long before Wikipedia*.

He got an A+ on that paper. The professor read part of it out loud to the class, praising his research and his arguments, and then said it was one of the most infuriating things he had ever written.

You want that guy to teach college courses? Great. Give me a dozen of them. But I have a feeling that's not what Santorum means.

So you quoted me three times?
Also, I really don't care what you think of my teaching style, because I don't hold with the GOP belief that any idiot's opinion is valid.

It needs to be more American though. How about the Committee for Grumbling Blowhards? A KGB if you will.

Hey, if you're looking for conservative professors in universities, just visit the College of Business (or however they brand it) at your local university and ask them about taxes and banking regulation.

Mmmm...needs more Nehemiah Scudder. Of course, with Santorum, the next step is to stamp out the pesky Protestants, as he is a dirty Papist, but I'm sure that particular War on Religion will boil along merrily enough...

Actually, I take that back. Keep talking Rick, for reasons made clear by others in this thread.

I've had plenty of conservative professors. Rick Santorum has no evidence to back up any assertions he makes about liberals and conservatives in the educational arena, nor does he himself fit any reasonable definition of conservative.

The man is a reactionary crypto-fascist. He has no trace of the legacy of Edmund Burke or even Russell Kirk anywhere in his body.

Pretty much. The problem has been conflating anyone in the Republican Party as immediately Conservative. Even if they are chewing at the scenery-burn down the house radicals who hate the Constitution, hate their neighbors, and hate the foundation of liberties that make up our society--which, to be fair, a good number of so-called "Conservatives" really do. They hate our liberties, and hate that they have to pay lip service to a nation that allows for religious freedom to be addressed in the Constitution, and hate that they have to smile when mouthing platitudes for a bunch of rubes that they would really just rather do without.

To be fair, the media hasn't been doing us many favors in clearing that up either...

Wait, you are for real? That wasn't a joke? Well, fark you.

Who the fark are you to tell me who loves America? Who the fark are you to judge how much a person loves his or her country? Who the fark are you to think there could be a proper line of questions to even determine such a thing?

Shut the fark up, you fascist piece of shiat.
