Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Santorum Off the Deep End; This Guy is Scary

I'm holier than you

The more I listen to and read about Rick Santorum the more he frightens me.  He’s a religious zealot and I wonder what kind of controls he would attempt to put in place given the powers to do so.  He’s been criticizing President Obama for not being Christian-enough, not following the Bible closely enough. What in the world does any of this have to do with running the country?  Is he saying we can’t have a Jewish president? Or an agnostic?  Or someone who’s just not very interested in religion?  It sure sounds like it. And how arrogant is it that Mr. Santorum thinks he gets to judge the sincerity of someone else’s religious beliefs?

Today I see he’s suggesting that just maybe there should be a ban on prenatal medical tests because these may lead to abortions.  I guess he doesn’t care about the lives that these tests often save.

So under a President Santorum I envision an America where there are religious tests for public office holders and where women have no right to make their own decisions about medical treatment.  Like I say, a scary guy.
