Posted on 01/05/2012 9:47:31 AM PST by SeekAndFind
The young people of today love them some Ron Paul. He's like Kelly Clarkson of GOP candidates. Hell, he's so much like the pop star Kelly Clarkson, she endorsed him. However, until now, many people have attempted to just brush off this youth support as nothing but a bunch of stoners. An endorsement he received today might sting a little more though. It comes from the 19 year old nephew of Rick Santorum.
The nephew, John Garver, wrote a column over at the Daily Caller in which he says Americans should only elect his uncle if they “want another big-government politician who supports the status quo to run our country.” Ooh, that hurts.

“It is because of this inability of status quo politicians to recognize the importance of our individual liberties that I have been drawn to Ron Paul. Unlike my uncle, he does not believe that the American people are incapable of forming decisions. He believes that an individual is more powerful than any group (a notion our founding fathers also believed in).
Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate trying to win the election for a reason other than simply winning the election.”
Popular Tumblrer Stacy Lambe linked to the column saying that he knows Garver’s family and that, in the extended Santorum clan, they are the “black sheep.”
If they weren’t before, they certainly are now.
You can read the rest of Garver’s piece here.
Every family has weak genes somewhere.
Oh, well. Every family has a nutcase somewhere in it.
Not everyone who supports Ron Paul is a nutcase, but enough of them are to make a difference and those who are not are being misled.
I don’t support Santorum but this is a little inappropriate. His parents should have raised him better and he should know that the only reason he got to write this is because he is Santorum’s nephew.
Oh yeah, I've heard of this guy. His endorsement is HUGE!
Well, at least somebody in the Santorum family favors limited government.
If you look at Ron Paul’s supporters, a SIGNIFICANT number of them are actually YOUNG PEOPLE ( Santorum’s nephew being one of them ).
Go Figure. The OLDEST candidate has the MOST NUMBER of YOUNG supporters...
Anyone who writes like this isn't worth reading...
The media has nothing....What is it with digging up Cousins, Lesbian Sisters? Who doesn’t have some family that the media could drag up that would embaress them?.....
NEWSFLASH: Young person makes stupid decision. More at 11.
Cut the kid some slack...
After all he’s only 19...and he could have endorsed Obummer!
He responded to this last night at a townhall meeting. He said He has 35 nieces and nephews and 1 is just going through a phase, lol :). He said he loved his nephew too. :)
There’s no doubt at all that Gingrich put him up to this.
Guess their is a connection between senility and puerile ignorance.
Ron Paul is dead on when he speaks of domestic issues, but a total lune when he speaks of foreign affairs.
I’d take advise from a 5 year old over a teenager any day.
“He’s like Kelly Clarkson of GOP candidates”
He’s like the Levin Johnston of the Santorum Family. Levi spported Obama and voted for him while still being with Bristol.
How long till this twerp makes the media rounds like Levi did?
Cut the kid some slack...
After all hes only 19...and he could have endorsed Obummer!
He might as well endorse his O-liness?
He is unelectable, though he is right on some domestic issues.
I like your tagline.
I was a Paul voter in 08. I still like him although Paul goes further out than I do on a few things. I haven't decided yet for this year. Not Romney is as far as I'm committing.
