Breaking Down the GOP Candidates: Gingrich

The GOP debates and surrounding hoopla seemingly grow more trite with every passing week.

During the most recent televised debate, hosted by Google and FoxNews in Florida, the moderators continued their trend of bias by directing the majority of questions to Rick Perry and Mitt Romney, neither of whom offers any improvement over the tripe trotted out by the two parties representing the interests of corporations and bankers above all else.

If you missed my breakdown of the detestable Rick Santorum, click here.

Enter the Newt. Defying the wishes of rational Americans from coast-to-coast, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, author of the notoriously rhetorical “Contract with America“, declared his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination amid dropped jaws and rolled eyes from Anchorage to South Beach.

And how has Fig pursued his candidacy? Well, just today he somehow ensured the Tea Party lost any scant shred of legitimacy when Tea Party Nation founder (and delusional poster child) Judd Phillips incomprehensibly endorsed Gingrich.

Gingrich, in no uncertain terms, represents exactly the type of career politician we need to eradicate from the national platform. Gingrich has left more wives than war while preaching family values.

And finally, despite all of his unqualifications to hold public office in any nation outside of Latin America and Africa, Gingrich’s campaign started falling apart almost immediately.

Do we really want another socially conservative hypocrite calling for limited government while increasing spending? No. No we really, really don’t.

The good news? As of publication, Gingrich’s campaign has fallen apart, he has few funds remaining and his staff disintegrated during the summer. With luck he’ll be gone before the first snowfall.

Breaking Down the GOP Candidates

With the GOP debates increasing in frequency as the primary season approaches, it’s prudent to get a general breakdown on what each candidates general and specific views are.

I admittedly have an agenda. Once the views of the others are exposed, I feel confident voters of intellectual curiosity will recognize the rest of the GOP is nothing more than the status quo.

Starting with my least favorite candidates, I’m utterly delighted to identify Rick Santorum, a man who singlehandedly inspired a contest to create an appropriate definition for the word, “Santorum.”

Yes this former senator from Pennsylvania meets the typical criteria to run as a Republican. He’s male, he’s white, he’s not a fan of other countries or states rights. But Ricky has a bit of a nasty edge when it comes to homosexual rights.

Though he’s not solely against the idea of a same sex couple, this legend in his own mind had the clarity of thought and the strength of character to make it well known, he believes bestiality too, would destroy America.

“Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Why? Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that’s what? Children. Monogamous relationships.”

Now, say what you want about Rick’s views on homosexuality, but every society in the history of man? He’s apparently completely devoid of any educational history which spells out for Rick the benefits of polygamy.

“In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing. And when you destroy that you have a dramatic impact on the quality”

Impact on the quality. Because a 50 percent divorce rate for theoretically monogamous heterosexual marriages is the sort of sustainable quality Rick wants to maintain.

Several of Rick’s views are completely absurd but resonate with some Americans. Remember, at the esoteric level, countries are nothing more than political boundaries.

Santorum’s rhetoric includes a belief in and the restoration of, “American exceptionalism.” This is the belief American are a superior population to others.

Simply put, there’s no such thing. We’ve been taught from an early age that America is the greatest country on Earth.

Okay, why? Our education and health systems are nowhere near the greatest on Earth, our currency is rapidly devaluing, our politicians are bought and paid for by corporations and several lunatics running for president believe Iran should be confronted in their goal of becoming a nuclear power.

Rick Santorum is the worst possible candidate for the Oval Office. He is a statist, he believes in the infallibility of the federal government, he is a warmonger, bigot, and he is more of the same loathsome politician taking donations from banks and corporations. Who is Rick Santorum? He is an enemy of liberty.
