COURAGE: Men and women of courage stand with Rick Santorum!

Posted on 02/23/2012 2:36:59 AM PST by Dan.israel.2011

For me it comes down to who do I trust will lead our country with Godly courage.

That man is Rick Santorum.

The COURAGE to do right.

The COURAGE to trust the Lord.

The COURAGE to call evil what it is.

The COURAGE to recognize the spiritual battle and put on the full armor of God.

Do you have the COURAGE to stand with Rick?

Expect a lot of bile from the loser supporters FRiend.

Santorum consolidated his lead last night though biased partisans, yes I am one too, will not only disagree but disagree unpleasantly.

When we trust the Lord we expect evil will rise against us. When we put on the full armor of God we can and will prevail against evil.

The battle belongs to the Lord.

We are soldiers in HIS Army.

The battle is spiritual and Rick Santorum is the only one who gets it.

I stand with God first and foremost and I stand others who get it.

If he (the Speaker) is the nominee, yes, I will.

As for now, I primarily stand with RICK SANTORUM, out of courage and commitment, and I don't care if I am laughed at, ridiculed, threatened with an IRS audit, or nailed to a tree.

Some things you just stand up for, particularly when it is crunch time.

If Newt wins the primary he is a distant 2nd in my book and I can hold my nose and vote for him in the general election.

Mittens and PaulBOTS are more dangerous than Obama.

Nothing Alinsky in that.

I suppose these words were written in a blind rage. I read nothing about 'those who trail in a race'. The bilge was to the loser supporters

I had the the courage to admit I was a biased partisan too—can you? Nothing Alinsky in that. And what do you call those who trail in a race? Winners? Logic is our friend, FRiend.

My comment had nothing to do with biased partisan

I shall keep my peace as to what I think of Santorum, else it might come down to I have no option. But I assure you he is no saint, even though he sure likes to pretend.

Since I no longer live in the USSA, I do not so much have a dog in this hunt, but since I am from Tennessee, I have no fears.
My state will vote Republican no matter who it is.
We did not even go for Goreon the local boy.
Obozo will get only Memphis.

The evil of Obama has brought the end times closer in the eyes of many Christians and that is why Rick Santorum leads in the polls.
All three candidates and even the nut resemble each other fiscally but Rick stands out spiritually.
He is going to win.

I claim that victory in prayer.

The battle belongs to the Lord the victory is His if only we have the courage to stand and claim the victory that HE will deliver.

If HIS people, who are called by HIS name, humble ourselves, pray, seek HIS face..........

Well no offense to the participants that despise what God had His elect to write down, but I have been reminded since Obama got elected of Gideon.

Judges 7:2 And the LORD said unto Gideon, "The People that are with thee are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against Me, saying, 'Mine own hand hath saved me.'

God culled down the number to verse 7 And the LORD said unto Gideon, "By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other People go every man unto his place.

Now to have the faith of Gideon takes real courage.

No one as it stands now. My efforts will be spent working to elect conservatives to local, state and Congressional office.

Santorum comes from the Hillman school of republicanism. Being from Pittsburgh I know that means RINO, country club republicans. We NEVER get conservative republican candidates, only weak, middle left republians.

If you liked Tom Ridge, Bill Scranton, Bill Schaffer, Arlen Spector, John Heinz and local politicos Jim Roddy and Jacobs you’ll love Santorum.

My assessment of last night was that it went as I thought it would.

Last night was set up to attack and take Santorum out, and it may have. Same thing happened to Newt before Florida. I give Newt, who did superbly, credit for not joining in with Romney and his wingman Ron Paul. Of course Newt wasn’t attacked because his poll numbers are not a threat right now for Romney. If Newt rises, he will be ganged up on for another round.

But...it is what it is and Santorum probably knew it was coming. Last night did show why it is hard to run as a Congressman for President. You have a voting record because you served as a person to get things passed your President wanted. That isn’t always good for you.

As a result of last night, Romney will probably win Michigan and Arizona. If Rick is out, I hope Newt or Rick could stage a comeback, but I kind of think if Romney starts winning primaries, he will be on a roll and time for the others is running out.

And don’t forget that Ron Paul will throw any of his delegates to Mitt. I think Paul is a fake. How he could back Romney or want his son to serve with Mr Big Gubmint, is beyond me.

Why, yes! I DO have that much courage, and more!

However, I also have a brain, and I know how to use it. So I’m gonna have to go with Newt Gingrich for President.

_________________________________________

Nana, I assume that you are from the logical and decent
part of Tennessee, but you are living in ancient history.

While the Ford family launched black politics in Memphis
back in the 50s, I doubt that it means little now.
My father was a Main Street merchant, and was always cussing any and all Fords, but that was long ago
Fords are probably no longer an issue in west Tennessee, and have nothing to do with anything.

Memphis is, however, now 60 percent black, and they control everything, and from what I see and hear, have destroyed the city.
Ford or no Ford, they rule Memphis, 60 percent black.

Santorum’s statement, in defense of his liberal voting record, was “POLITICS iS A TEAM SPORT”. As I see it you are going to need a lot of courage to stand with him, because you just don’t ever know who is going to be on your team. His explanation of supporting Spector would have put a lot of athletes in jail........you know throwing the game because you made a bet against your team.

Does God have a plan to cease our deficit spending and bring government spending in line with actual revenues? Mmmm... I don't think so, and neither does Rick from what I've seen.

So no, I won't be voting for Rick.

Sure wish we had a real conservative running, but we don't. My vote's going third-party or write in this time.

Rick Santorum is perfect for America at this particular point in time. At no other time in the history of this nation have we needed a 100% ProLife leader more than we do today. Respect for human life is the MOST pressing issue in the world today. Without a leadership, that recognizes the the sanctity and dignity of the human person, at the helm, America and indeed the world, will suffer much more severely during this coming chastisement from God.

Rick Santorum said, "What I will do as president...is talk about the dangers of contraception." Now the media is taking him up on it. Unfortunately, many voters in this country are going to look at this as a referendum on contraception and Rick as poster boy for anti-contraception. Not to mention a referendum on pre-natal testing.

Rick wanted the discussion, he got it, but he's not going to like the results.
