Santorum wins

by on February 9, 2012

Ok, somehow I’m now on Rick Santorum’s email list. Did his people buy my contact info from the state election office? He speaks the language of Conservatives well. I wish him the best!

(from Santorum’s newsletter)

Dear Patriot:

What a night! We did it again! We shocked the moderate establishment and pulled off what the media elites said was impossible by winning three HUGE contests that we were told we couldn’t win.

I’m exhausted, but I’m so elated. Before I try and get some sleep, I had to sit down and write you this letter.

As I watched the returns come in tonight, my thoughts kept turning to Ronald Reagan in 1976 when he ran against the moderate President Gerald Ford. In the beginning of that campaign, he lost the first EIGHT primaries. The media and the establishment made fun of his campaign; they said he had no shot, and told him to get out of the race. But then, Reagan got on a roll, winning in North Carolina and a slew of states after that. The conservative base rallied to him, despite all odds. He went all the way to Convention.

Just like Ronald Reagan said at the Republican Convention in 1976, Conservatives must stand for something – even if our party establishment hesitates. Reagan said that we must have a “banner of bold, unmistakable colors, with no pale pastel shades”.
