I Can’t Stand Rick Santorum

On my post the other day about Rick Santorum, I should’ve also included this video.

Make sure you don’t vote for universal healthcare because when the government’s budget gets tight, the doctors will start euthanizing all the old people.  What?  Don’t you all know that in European countries with universal healthcare, they just kill off old people?  Wait, you’ve never heard?  Well you probably haven’t because it’s nonsense, but according to Rick Santorum, it happens all the time in the Netherlands.  Old people have to wear bracelets to tell doctors, “Please don’t euthanize me!”  Ten percent of all deaths there come from doctors killing off the elderly!  *stupid woman in background* “Oh woww……”  Talk about fear-mongering.

Remember when Sarah Palin was spreading these same sort of lies?  How can a candidate running for the highest office in our land get away with statements like this?  Where are the journalists doing fact checking, holding him to the fire?  When pressed about this issue by foreign reporters, our former senator’s spokeperson told them, “Rick is strong in his pro-life stance.  He speaks from the heart.”  Right.  No fact checking, just make things up when the facts get in the way, and remember, speak from the heart!  I can’t stand that man.  How is this guy a viable candidate for president of the United States?  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I weep for my country.

    Hi Jason. Did you see the recently made HBO movie about Sarah Palin? As a complete nonconformist to the established order, I say HBO did a great job. Similar made-for-cable movies of (in my observation) equal historical truth about political power are Boardwalk Empire, The Tudors, and The Borgias.

    The thing about McCain and Palin is they both had skin in the game; he a veteran and her at the time with a son in the U.S. Army. I theorize the oligarchs will never again give the people a presidential or vice presidential choice who may have empathy against abusing of the U.S. military as corporate empire expanders (the essay “War is a Racket” by General Smedley Butler is public domain at Wikipedia). The senior Bush was the last such person to be a flesh-and-blood veteran, and that’s complicated as I can explain if anyone’s interested. Sure Bush junior and Gore were veteran’s on paper, but a close investigation of the public record says those guys are paper veterans, not flesh-and-blood veterans. I’d prefer Vladimir Putin over the choices the oligarchs have for us. I suggest everyone write-in Ron Paul on their presidential ballot, and I have a post on my blog explaining why if anyone’s interest. Thanx Bro.

  2. Hey Pete. I don’t really watch television, and I haven’t seen many movies, but I’ll check out the films you’re recommending. I think I’ve seen news articles about the Sarah Palin movie. Wasn’t it called ‘Game Change’ or something like that? From what I’ve heard, it’s really good.

    Yup, “Game Change”. The thing about Boardwalk Empire, The Tudors, and The Borgias is they show government as organized crime except with the addition of “I am the great and powerful Wizard of Authority” illusion bought into by the ruled.
