Rick Santorum in Manchester 5-12-15 Story #2: The Cause

What’s the use of being elected or re-elected if you don’t stand for something

President Grover Cleveland

On Tuesday Rick Santorum gave a speech at the Cornerstones NH event and if the only think you were listening for was: “Is the Former Senator and Runner up to Mitt Romney in 2012 running again?” then the only thing you really need to see is yesterday’s post.

But if you really want to know what yesterday was about you need to know Cornerstones. I interviewed Brian McCormick the emcee of the event concerning it:

Cornerstones my be a political group but it involves so many people who are making a difference for the elderly, the poor and the young along with the unborn, and more than that it’s about showing courage in a world that wants to silence people of faith

Cornerstones is all about faith and service and having the courage to stand up for both and there are plenty of young people willing to make that fight.

And think about Senator Santorum, there are plenty of groups that he could have appeared with if he wanted to create buzz for a campaign but the take a closer look at his speech, it’s about courage,

The courage to speak uncomfortable truths aloud

The courage to confront issues instead of ceding the culture

The courage to ignore the MSM and the consultant demand to ignore family and life in the hopes of appeasing them.

In short the courage to stand for more than being elected.

The giveaway was in the 2nd part of his speech.  He told a story of visiting a group of donors in NY.  Every other GOP candidate had been called to see them and they began asking questions of him.

the first was on abortion, the 2nd question was on abortion, the third was on abortion and he finally had enough, and confronted them on it

When Rick Santorum opposes abortion he means it, when he says the breakdown of the family is the single biggest issues in America he means it, when he says he’ll stand up and fight on those issues he means it.  And when he says if he runs, he will bring up those issues and fight on them.  He means it.

When it comes to Social issues Rick Santorum is going to fight for the cause because he knows you can win a debate if you let the other side speak unopposed.

That’s the story that everyone is missing.
