Goldwater to the nth power

Remember when Goldwater claimed “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” during the 1964 Presidential campaign? Ladies and gentlemen, the quite-possibly next Republican candidate for President takes old Barry’s rhetoric to new levels.


“We have a duty to leave this country better than we found it,” Santorum said. “I believe that if we are unsuccessful in this election that we will have failed in that duty and it will have horrendous consequences. … It will be the end of the great experiment in the order of liberty and freedom.”

Well then. I guess I have no choice but to vote for Mr. Santorum else the United States of America will collapse into the dustbin of history, never to return.

I really really hope the Republican Party nominates this guy. Not even the American voters who put the Tea Party House in office could be insane enough to vote for a man who wants to create Margaret Atwood’s Republic of Gilead within our borders, while at the same time wanting to bomb to pieces a similar theocratic state like Iran.

How much lunacy can a party endure?


  1. The farther they track right, the more they lose the moderates they need to win. If they then attempt to appease the moderates, they’ll lose the far right. It’s a win-win!
