Money talks in politics and that is especially true on the presidential campaign trail where the dollars flow like a fire hydrant covering expenses all across the country. Following the Wisconsin loss, Santorum says the donations dried up and they wanted to avoid going into deep debt to carry on.

Report from CBS News:

When Rick Santorum ended his presidential bid on Tuesday, he spoke about the illness of his three-year-old daughter, Bella, and expressed a desire to spend more time with her as a parent. But on Thursday, the former Pennsylvania senator suggested the decision largely came down instead to a simple reality: He was out of cold, hard cash.
After losing Wisconsin’s April 3 primary to rival Mitt Romney by seven points – a contest, Santorum said, that his campaign viewed as necessary to win in order to do well in his home state of Pennsylvania – his fundraising dried up.

“For the first time the campaign had a debt, the debt was from my perspective a little bit more substantial than I was comfortable with. And I’ll be honest with you, Tony, in the last week after Wisconsin we basically raised almost no money,” Santorum told Family Research Council President Tony Perkins in a radio interview, his first since announcing he was ending his bid. “We had solicitations going out and people were just emailing back saying the race is over and you gotta join the crew and there were others who would say not but it was a very, very small trickle of funds that were coming in.”

Looking ahead to the Pennsylvania primary on April 24, Santorum said, he felt like his campaign wouldn’t be able to spend even “a penny” on advertising to counter Romney’s planned multi-million dollar advertising blitz.

Essentially the Romney money-machine was intimidating enough to keep Santorum from attempting a shoestring campaign in Pennsylvania. Fearing a slaughter on the airwaves, Santorum did the next logical thing which was to bow out before the ship hits the bottom. Gingrich hit this point many weeks ago in terms of campaign debt yet he has vowed to remain in the race until Romney hits 1,144 delegates. Ron Paul is the only other candidate with the money to carry on and will also likely continue in the race until Romney hits the delegate mark.

    • I am beginning to think my Republican party has gone suicidal. Money should never have been the obstacle for getting the last remaining conservative we had through the nomination process. Surely the 90 conservative leaders who turned out from across America to CPAC to give him their support followed by the chiming in of both Rush and Dr. Dobson the next week should have been enough to get Santorum enough money to continue the good fight. Something is rotten in Denmark as my mother would have said! Being left with Romney dooms us to the next 4 years of Obamunism which could destroy America – what a tragedy!

      • @Victoria DeLacy – I don’t understand what you mean by “last remaining conservative.” How do you define conservative? Are you saying Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich aren’t conservative (or are you just ignoring them)? What criteria do you use to rule each of them as being non-conservative?

        • Conservatives don’t spend money they don’t have. That leaves Newt $ rick out. Conservatives don’t hike up fees on the taxpayers to fund forced social programs on the taxpayers. That leaves Romney out.

          Last man standing, Ron Paul

      • I can’t believe the amount of Republicans that will not vote for Romney over Obama. What I am hearing is if your definiton of a conversative candidate doesn’t win the nomination you’d rather vote liberal or not vote at all (no difference really). I’m voting ABO – anybody but Obama. I am not sure that a hard core conservative would win anyway. A moderate, but fiscal conversative, I think would do better nationwide and capture more independents. But this year it is ——-ABO.

        • Relax.

          As they say, “Democrats fall in love, Republicans fall in line.” If Romney is the nominee, all the people who don’t like him today will vote for him in November.

          Unless Ron Paul goes third-party.

        • Maybe if given the choice between a liberal and a liberal cloaked as something else we just won’t bother voting.

      • Sometimes some people see things that others don’t. Just hope it gets pointed out to us that missed it.

  1. How much did all you santorum supporters pony up for his campaign? I’m tired of his whining that Romney had more money. Perhaps Romney had more money because his supporters had confidence in his ability to win and get the job done. I don’t think he’s spending his own money. Santorum had a millionaire backing him who evidently saw the writing on the wall. The fact is, Santorum was not ready for prime time, no matter how nice a guy he is, and he would not have been ready to face the problems this country has as president. He has never run a company, has mostly been a lawyer or in elected office- no executive experience. As a conservative republican, I would have REALLY had to hold my nose to vote for santorum. I’m someone who supported Pat Toomey when he ran the first time, and santorum supported the rino specter over a good conservative like Toomey. I will never lose the bad taste in my mouth for santorum’s terrible judgement in that one.

    • the Santorum campaign had $922,000 in debt at the end of February. That debt almost assuredly increased in March.

      Way to go Rick, aka The Prince of Pork.

  2. We the people are so stupid, that we are letting money buy the White house. Our system is so corrupt and we continue playing the game. We can not complain if we are not willing to change the system; elections should be founding by tax payers contribution of ten Dollars per year for working citizen to be deducted from their income and use for political campaign; not corporation or special interest organization should be allowed to contribute any money for any political campaign period. Corruption is done by the corporations and especial interest organizations that seek political favors from the politicians that sale their office to the ones that want to fund their campaign.
    Fellow Americans, our country is being destroy by the Washington culture of corruption, its time to make real change in our electoral system to void any corruption, we the people are the only ones that can change the system, the politicians will not due it. Vote for Ron Paul the only honest candidate that we can trust.

    • Kind of like the IRS in that the more they try to simplify the more complicated it becomes. The more you try to clean up corruption the more corrupt it becomes. Real problem is we got way too much going into the pot because way too many are taking out of the pot. Just got to quit spending and start investing with keeping focused on getting the most bang for the buck.

  3. Any candidate that thinks going to war by a bankrupt country needs to be gone. And anyone who condones that line to thinking should contribute ‘their’ personal money to finance it and not money from American’s who don’t want it.

    Ron Paul 2012.. for a man who never got media attention the same as the other clowns.. have a look at HIS support.

    Where In the world is Ron Paul?
    http://politicalvelcraft.org/2012/04/12/where-in-the-world-is-ron-paul-what-john-mccains-council-on-foreign-relations-corporate-media-is-hiding-from-the-u-s-citizens/

    Try to take a minute and watch the videos.. they make better sense than what we’ve been fed.

    • Agreed, why are we policing the world when we can’t ever afford our own budget back at home? We have so many issues within our own borders that need to be solved before we go out and about telling other countries how to run themselves.

      • Heck, we could afford to POLICE the world.

        Let’s use that as an analogy:

        Police go to the scene of a crime, determine who is at fault, arrange for correction, and then go back to the station.

        Our problem is that every time we see a new trouble spot, WE MOVE IN, rent a few rooms, pay for their meals, tell them how to run their lives, AND NEVER LEAVE.

        We’re like the demanding, overbearing Uncle that nobody likes.

  4. Ron Paul has something the others never had, he has a committed and huge loyal following among the “common” people. He receives donations month after month, he only needs to let it be known what his needs are and his supporters start a money-bomb and supply it. To date he is the only GOP candidate who has not been in debt, not even moneybags Romney can claim that. RP actually conducts his campaign consistent with the policies he campaigns for and proposes to manage the country by…..Imagine that!

  5. Wake up America, Ron Paul is our only hope to restore honesty in Washington. We are in this economic mess because Washington culture of corruption and the Main Stream News Media that fail to report the truth to the American people. We elected the politicians to office to represent us the people, but they betray us and passed legislation that destroy our manufacturing our small farming, small retail stores and small business; they destroy our economic base and millions of jobs, they promoted the invasion of constitution, they are too responsible for the demise of what it use to be our America. Fellow Americans we must shake up Washington, on November we must vote for Rom Paul and not any one else, if Dr. Paul it is not nominate by the GOP we must vote for a third party. If Obama is elected again, it will be because the GOP fail to stand for America. Ron Paul is our last hope to restore America, because Americans will only be united by an honest leader.
    God bless America. I pray to our lord to give us the wisdom to work in harmony to restore our constitution and our country.

  7. Ok, it is mentioned that money corrupted the campaign. Then explain why Mr Paul’s readily available “money bomb” has left him last in the race? If he has access to the same millions as Romney and using your logic it takes money to win a candidacy, please explain why Mr. Paul’s millions did not put him in 2nd place like Rick?

    This country is not perfect. But, it is still the best system ever tried. As long as our citizens have the freedom to vote for who they believe will make the best candidate there is nothing to criticize. I have been A Rick Santorum supported from the beginning because what is important to me is important to him. Unfortunately, America spoke and those that showed up to vote said otherwise. He had a shoestring budget no where the likes of Romney or Paul. Yet, he still gave everyone a run for their money.

    Rick, more power to you in your future endeavors. I am sure you know you still have a following of people that share your values for an America where we are not afraid to call evil. “evil”. And to call good, what is “good.”

    • Ron Paul is trying to sell liberty. (It’s) like trying to sell stuff to people while they’re hanging out with their friends at the bar”. Not cool.

      With liberty come responsibility. Yeah, you make bad choices, you lose.

    • Sam

      “Then explain why Mr Paul’s readily available “money bomb” has left him last in the race?” “If he has access to the same millions as Romney and using your logic it takes money to win a candidacy, please explain why Mr. Paul’s millions did not put him in 2nd place like Rick?”

      Are you sure of that? Independent news sources say otherwise but we won’t really know until Tampa will we? Never-the-less, Ron Paul is still in the race, Newt Gingrich has filed bankruptcy and Rick Santorum is in debt and made the decision to suspend his campaign.

      Ron Paul has never had as many millions in his campaign chest as Romney. In fact to date less than half. He doesn’t have Goldman Sachs, Chase Manhattan or millionaire sponsors. So what is Ron Paul’s secret then?

      He has a huge and ever growing base of grass-roots people supporting his campaign with their small, but consistent donations. The doner list alone is evidence of his actual popularity, despite what the GOP establishment and MSM will have us all believe. You see? Individual supporters made the difference.

      Where were all the grass-roots people supporting Rick Santorum?

      • Windisea:

        To clarify, Newt’s campaign has NOT declared bankruptcy. It was the health-care think tank that he LEFT which has declared bankruptcy.

        And Dr. Paul does NOT have “access” to Romney’s financial supporters, because Ron Paul would not DO what they want.

        Only one guy is the One Percent Candidate.

        • Goethe Behr

          “To clarify, Newt’s campaign has NOT declared bankruptcy. It was the health-care think tank that he LEFT which has declared bankruptcy.”

          Thanks for the clarification, I’ll leave it that he doesn’t have adequate donations to compete and ask the same question.

          Where is Newt Gingrich’s grass-roots support?

          “And Dr. Paul does NOT have “access” to Romney’s financial supporters, because Ron Paul would not DO what they want.”

          Exactly! Ron Paul conducts the business of the campaign by the principles he expounds on. He doesn’t run up debt and he doesn’t take money from the “Moneychangers” who will later demand favors, instead he quietly, courageously “Walks the Walk” to achieve his goals.

        • Newt Gingrich: $50 per photo as campaign struggles

          Newt Gingrich is now charging $50 to take a photo with him in order to raise campaign funds, reports the National Journal. The Gingrich campaign is now $1.6 million in debt.

      • RP is selling a product that few are interested in. It’s called Liberty. You make the choices in life not the government. A tough sell for sure when the government is giving away socialism free, well on credit to be more accurate. Liberty can live forever but socialism usually carries an expiration date. Said date is rapidly approaching in the USA.

  8. obama has now a reason to smile. Santorum could have posed a contest but now Obama is likely to get an easy way into his second term. I think it also builds Santorum since he will make a come back in the next election when a strong candidate like Obama will not be there from the Democrats side. All in all i am a Kenyan but loves the American wayof doing politics. Mature even when mud is being thrown across. Long live America

    • (Obama is likely to get an easy way into his second term.)

      I’ll drink to that part of you post. Rick was doomed from the inception.

  9. Santorum did not only not have the funds. He was not organized since the beginning. Hence, not being registered in different states. At least he got out. Gotta give him that. Newt still in and in debt. Isn’t this election about the economy and the debt. What does that tell you? And, you think Obama isn’t going to have the money and organization?

    • (Isn’t this election about the economy and the debt.)

      Now that is an understatement. Both Newt & Rick now deep in debt and to think they actually attracted a following. I’ll bet there are people on this very blog that still support them and feel the could do for this country what the did in their campaign. Ran it into deep debt.

          • Only two men standing and as I posted RP’s top contributors I think it on fair to post The Mitt’s: (Just in case there may be one or two bloggers who think he in for them)

  11. Speaking of money, Santorum isn’t the only one running out of it. Is Bernanke finally doing his job, or just trying to save his neck?

    Originally submitted by JWalker
    Bernanke to Congress: Destruction closer than you think.

    Even Bernake is admitting that if congress doesn’t start cutting spending like Ron Paul has been suggesting… we’re doomed.

    CNBC Reports:

    Warning that our nation’s fiscal health has deteriorated appreciably since the onset of the financial crisis and the recession, Bernanke called upon lawmakers to confront the long term fiscal challenges sooner rather than later. If lawmakers don’t confront them, they’ll find themselves confronted by them.

    • What can they cut that doesn’t cost them their jobs in the way of votes and/or campaign funds? It’s socialism vs liberty and time and time again the voters have voted for socialism. The government takes care of us on borrowed money. It carries an expiration date and the clock is indeed ticking.

      • “Herbal Tea Partier”

        That is such a perfect name for a Romney supporter.

        Can we think of more? “PAYtriot”?

        • (Romney supporter. Can we think of more? “PAYtriot”?)

          Wonder if they ever ask, who is going to “pay”?

          All comes down to socialism vs liberty and I’m all for socialism on a pay as you go plan.

          If it’s socialism on credit I go with liberty but let’s face it, going from socialism in deep debt to liberty ain’t gunna be pretty for a good number of the American people. It means the “J” word (jobs).

    • Boy oh BOY!
      Disagree with a Ron Paul disciple and out come the name calling blogs.
      Heaven help us if the stupid americans choose anyone other than saint paul!
      Or is it saint ron? How could I ever vote for a man who evokes such manic hatred of anyone who dares to have a different view?
      This tactic wouldn’t work in the general election and would even scare away voters who are more timid and respectful of others.
      @Herbal Tea Partier, I don’t agree with the Tea Party in general but I will support anyone who dares blaspheme the most holy messiah, Ron Paul.
      All the Ron Paul supporters who disrespect other points of view had better be making preparations to move to new zealand or some other place from which thy can safely observe the true patriots dig in and dig us out of the mess that the democratic thought police got us into. Unless of course the ron paul though police have more guns than I give them credit.
      By the way…if the most divine ron really has popular support. . . why not have every ron paul supporter give ONE dollar to his campaign.
      By my count that would be at least $78 million. no? and that is not the majority that could defeat Obama but $78 million could buy HIM the election!
      except that would be buying the election with taxpayer dollars or tax evading dollars or something right?
      If you Ron Paul devotees really want him to win start raising money among yourselves!
      Oh yes. All hail the future king of america, ron.
      so you guys don’t start calling me names. but you will anyway.
      Well enjoy boys and girl. I’ll see you in a later post!

      • What a waster of good ink and paper…… Not a word about who you support or why you don’t like RP. However your post does mention $$$ but this blog is about Rick, not Ron Paul.

      • GoodOlBoy

        Yes when one jump’s into the “arena” he has to be prepared to defend his opinion with those who will disagree. Please don’t mistake conviction and passion for hatred. Most of the contributors her participate out of concern for the future good of our country and fellow Americans. It’s been my experience that the majority in support of Ron Paul take the time to include facts and references to define and clarify RP’s policies in contrast with the other candidates. Passionate yes, but when they disagree most also provide verifiable facts about that candidate. If you take some time to scroll back on this page and check some of the past topics you will find numerous and lengthy debates supported with substance, not mere name-calling.

        The entrenched status quo whose wealth and power came about via the Neo-Conservative dominance of the Republican Party are doing everything possible to denigrate and keep Ron Paul’s views from being heard and taken seriously by Republicans and the American public at large.

        Unfortunately the biggest struggle for Ron Paul and his supporters is within the Republican Party itself. The Neo-Conservative movement took the party from it’s Conservative base and if Ron Paul can’t be silenced they stand to lose their domination, advantage and “entitlements”, to us the common people. Even so, Ron Paul’s message is being pushed through the barriers and his campaign carries on because of his supporters undaunting and passionate conviction.

        Have a good day!

  12. I went to Obama’s campaign page to see what his opinions are on different policies and the page was complete rubbish. Utterly simple and filled with rhetoric that points to his administration doing nothing overall. Mitt’s campaign site has more detailed information, and although I agree with may issues in the start, I will always find a number of points that I simply cannot support.

    Being a Dr. Paul supporter, I don’t understand is why war is so popular amongst other candidates when it is very unpopular with the public. I’ve grown up my entire life hearing about war on the news; Bosnia, Chechenya, Rwanda, Angola, Iran/Iraq, Pakistan/India, Kosovo, and if there is anyone who should be put in charge of a nation in a time when war is constant, I think it should be Paul — the man who seeks no aggression towards other nations, the man who encourages solutions through diplomacy, and who seeks the correct convention by which to engage in it.

    Even the Democrats who posted as anti-war advocates in the 2008 election have a list of countries they would like to attack, and Obama seems to want to go to Iran…somehow he forgot that whole bit about the “…bring the troops home…it’ll be the first thing to do when in office…”.

    Dr. Paul is RIGHT to stand by OUR (yes, you and me) Constitution. Many politicians unfortunately disagree with several of its clauses but would not dare to attempt ammendments, so they pretend it’s not there.

    BTW!!! Thanks Billy for the stats, those were quite an eye-opener.

    Anyone want to take me up on the bet that if re-elected, the Obama admin will unprovokedly attack Iran and not attempt diplomacy. Maybe some won’t remember, but diplomacy was a major winning point he had over McCain who kept going on about “pre-conditions”

    • (I don’t understand is why war is so popular amongst other candidates when it is very unpopular with the public.)

      Seems to be the most popular answer (military/foreign policy) when a person is asked why they pick Mitt over RP. I always follow up with the question, “Out of the 125+ countries we have troops in, can you name one we are needed in?” As most of these dough heads couldn’t even name 12 countries I begin to understand the 16 trillion dollar debt.

  13. Letter just received by Iowa supporters from Rick Santorum:

    “It truly frightens me to think what’ll happen if Mitt Romney is the nominee,”

    “Republicans and conservatives will be crippled by a nominee who presents zero contrast with Barack Obama on the major issues of this election.”

  14. Watch a Romney rally — an EMPTY stadium with about a hundred sycophants only… mostly yawning.

    Then see the THOUSANDS of REAL AMERICANS and their genuineness on Ron Paul’s rallies!

    But the main media never shows this REALITY — so, are we to stand by and allow them to steal this Election away from us — when clearly the TRUE Americans have spoken?!

        • Would be about the only reason to vote for Mitt but is it enough? ? Men like Romney are responsible for the greatest losses in the way of US life and territory in the history of out nation. Just don’t think we should take that same chance again. Nope it’s someone like RP or I sit this one out.

          • “sit this one out” is the kind of thinking that will keep Obama in office. Thank you for that. Sometimes your vote is for who you do not want to win.

            • Look RP isn’t a sure thing even if he were to win it all. No doubt he can cut the trillion dollars off no problem and create a million jobs just as easy but then all the eggs are in one basket. He is betting the farm on Yankee Ingenuity. The good doctor can only do so much in removing the cause of the injury but a great deal of damage has been done. Going to be as always up to the patient for the most part. Welfare to work has been a dismal failure in the past and America has been on welfare for longer than I care to remember.

Johnson began the 2012 race running for the Republican nomination but has wound up carrying the libertarian banner and could gain ballot access in several states.”

    If the above transpires, it is a certainty that Mitt will not defeat BO (with his flip-flopping, he couldn’t defeat him anyway, now this would assure it).

    So he needs to withdraw now in favor of Ron Paul!

    Ron Paul WILL become President in 2012 — IF, Romney becomes a Patriot, and forgoes his ego, for the Good of the People!

    Mitt Romney could become one of the greatest Statesmen in US History! He’d be the Savior of our Nation — the one that generations to come would tell their children: “Look at this statue, this is Mitt Romney, he saved America”!

    Or, he can reduce himself to just a tiny footnote…what is amazing is that his fate rests in his own hands (a very rare occurrence throughout the history of the world)!

    All Romney has to do, is to take advantage of this rarest of historical moments, and make a SINGLE DECISION!!!

    Withdraw his candidacy IN FAVOR of Ron Paul, with the following grandiose and heart-wrenching patriotic speech (to save his political skin):

    “I, Mitt Romney, will sacrifice my political goals for the Good of the People. Now I understand that only Ron Paul that can save our Nation. I agree with all he stands for, therefore, I have deemed that our Nation’s salvation can only be accomplished when Ron Paul is elected as President of the United States of America. Without regret, but with joy, I do the most honorable and patriotic deed I can — I withdraw myself from this election, and give my full support to Ron Paul!”

    One honest person is needed to bring these logical conclusions to Romney’s PERSONAL ATTENTION (not the myopic sycophants surrounding him and stroking his ego by chanting wishful thinking as ‘fact’: “You gonna win Boss, you gonna win Boss….).

    Regardless how egotistical, arrogant and narcissistic Romney may be, some semblance of reasoning of what’s best for him, should still remain in his skull. The instinct for self preservation dictates that even the smallest of minds will chose the path that leads to safety, not the one leading to disaster.

    An honest realist needs to talk to Romney one-on-one — and explain the following to him, so Mitt can comprehend it:

    1) If you don’t win the nomination, than your political career is over (you’ll become just a tiny footnote in US History as a failure).

    2) If you win the nomination, and don’t defeat Obama — which is the most probable outcome (you’ll become just a tiny footnote in US History as an even LARGER failure).

    Therefore, Dear Mitt, whichever gamble you take from the above, may lead to total disaster for your political career (and probably will)!

    However, here is an action you can take, Dear Mitt, that guarantees you’ll become immortalized in the annals of US History — becoming the 21st Century Savior of America (surely this carrot of success will entice Romney’s egotism to go for it — over the probable political beatings he’d receive otherwise)!

    All one needs to do, to assure Mitt’s Historical Greatness of Sacrifice for the Good of the Nation, is to present the above to Romney’s eyes alone! I urge all able to do so, to place this document in front of him!

    Send this to Mitt Romney — as an Open Letter, e-mails, etc. — the more you send, the greater the chance he’ll get to read it!

    • BO is a shoo-in if Mitt is elected to run against him.

      So, concentrate to have Rmoney withdraw from the election in favor of Ron Paul.

      At this stage only Ron Paul can defeat BO — and no-one else!

  16. Romney and Obama are actually clones —

    “Claim scientists at Rothdale’s laboratory in Lead’s, Ireland who publicly announced yesterday that both men were actually cloned in the King’s College – Chicago University experiments of 1956. ”

    For all of those that have kept on stating, and warning the American people, that Romney = Obama — now you have this video to back you up!

    Share it — funny stuff…sadly!

    • Ron Paul to WIN — or America to End 2012

      Take your pick…there are no other options!
      —————————————————————
      Ron Paul must take Rmoney to Tampa — to expose the GOP’s perfidy — when hundreds of thousands of Real Americans will come to the Convention voluntarily, supporting Ron Paul, the ONLY REAL AMERICAN PATRIOT in this race (vs a few hundred BUSED Rmoney bullies pretending they are actual people)!

      If the Republican Convention cheats Ron Paul out of The Nomination — then, go Third Party!

      There MUST NOT be a way allowed, for Rmoney to “debate” BO one-on-one — since this will be a Clowns’ Show (two liars trying to out-lie each other…when they are one-and-the-same HUMAN TRASH)!

      Ron Paul MUST be part of the DEBATES — so, he can clearly show up THESE politically trained monkeys for what they are — The ULTIMATE Destroyers of the USA!
      ————————————————————–

      Elect Ron Paul as President, if you want to Save America — vote for anyone else, if you WANT to DESTROY the USA!

  17. What did this young girl do, to get the Dogs-of-State to pursue and knock her of her bike brutally to the ground, and then maul her into painful submission?

    Watch carefully the chronological order (FREEZE picture at the time count given below — to see why):

    1) 0:32 — one of the Dogs-of-State signals the rest that he’s seen a cyclist taking a picture of “SOMETHING THAT MUST NOT BE SEEN”! So they run in pursuit.

    2) 0:44 — she is dragged down by two Dogs-of-State

    3) 0:51 — many more “Gang-of-Brothers” arrive surrounding their victim being mauled on the ground

    4) 0:57 — see the hand taking her cell phone away from her

    5) 1:10 — she manages to free one hand

    6) 1:11 — she tries to pass it in desperation to the people outside the circle of about a dozen Dogs-of-State trampling her rights

    7) 1:12 – 2:03 — she is still screaming in pain…but no-one can help her (since the AGGRESSORS, The Dogs-of-State are ARMED, and thus can inflict pain AT WILL on the disarmed, peaceful citizens)!

    And more abuses follow!

    This is the MOST DISTURBING VIDEO I’ve seen taped on American soil!

    DISGUSTING is mild — words fail me to describe my feelings on this OUTRAGE — watching the ‘US KGB’ MAUL and ABUSE a young girl!

    Don’t know what you’ll do about it — but I’m sending this to Judge Napolitano, the ACLU, News Media outlets, and even contacting my Lawyers to look into filing a civil case against these SS Troopers (hopefully pics can be enlarged so their badge numbers can be seen)!

  18. is NOTHING conservative or relcupiban going on inWashington DC! Mandated Healthcare, with exemptions selectively given out to the highest political donors, is certainly NOT relcupiban or conservative.Take out relcupiban and replace that word with GLOBALIST and you might be on the right track.Search Anne Marie Slaughter New World Order she believes foreign policy should be shifted into the unelected, unaccountable hands of corporations, foundations, and NGOs.
