Letter: Young prairie mom standing behind Santorum
When people find out I’ve been “campaigning” for Sen. Rick Santorum, they’re quite shocked. Politics? You? You’re the gal who couldn’t hardly name the last four presidents!
My response is this: My passion to get Santorum into the White House has to do with much greater things than politics, things like love for Christ and country, and the futures of my adorable children.
Recently, my husband and I went to see him in Tioga. He was introduced by Scott Hennen who said there is something unique about Santorum, in addition to the fact that he’s a fabulous politician — the fact that he loves God.
There he was: Rick. Plain ol’ Rick. However, he carried an ineffable presence with him, a presence of peace, security and wisdom.
He didn’t talk or act like a politician. He talked like an American, a faithful Christian who understands the knuckle-wrenching struggles of life, and knows what it’s like to work hard and raise seven children in today’s world.
He spoke about how as president, he would preserve our freedoms and rights as Americans, downplaying the governmental micro-management of our lives, farms and industries characteristic of the Obama administration.
He said that on day one, he’d allow the Keystone Pipeline, and start removing the oppressive powerhouse of control named ObamaCare.
Did we believe him? Yes. He’s sincere, and he has the record to prove it.
My hunch? I’m just a young mom on the prairie, but perhaps I’ve got an opinion that’s worth something.
Perhaps I can see why Rush Limbaugh said, “I hope Rick Santorum makes it to the White House.” My hunch is that almighty God is behind Santorum.
I think he is giving America a last chance. He’s giving us a chance to keep babies from getting aborted; to spare our Christian institutions; to revive the manufacturing sector of our nation, and much more.
He’s giving us a chance to be a Constitution-abiding nation “under God” once again, a chance to recover the land of the free — the land that we love.
