Last night Santorum gave a speech in Idaho and parts of it were very compelling, especially the parts where he told the truth about these entitlement programs. He said things you will never hear from the lips of Mitt Romney.

Here is a partial quote from the clip below where he is defining the problem – not just in fiscal terms, but in terms of our vanishing liberty:

And now 4 years in a row we’ve seen almost 25% in GDP spending. We’ve seen trillion dollar deficits. President Obama in 4 years is going to add over 5 trillion dollars to the national debt.

Oh it doesn’t cost us that much now because interest rates are so low. Our national debt costs us 7% of the overall budget. Imagine when interest rates double…and then triple…imagine what that does to the deficit of this country once this economy with a new president starts growing.

We are going to be in a HUGE problem.

That we are just twiddling our thumbs with this president. He’s ignoring it and he’s telling you all it doesn’t matter. In fact he’s telling you that we need government to run these huge deficits in order for us to have a strong economy.

This president is leading us down a road – it’s right out of the FDR playbook – to continue to grow government to get more and more people on government programs. More and more dependency. We have almost half of the people in this country that don’t pay taxes and almost half now receive some sort of government benefit.

We’re reaching a tipping point folks.

When those who pay are the minority and those who receive are the majority, freedom in election process is not something that people will care about. They’ll care about whether they get their piece. This is what it’s all designed to do – gradually slowly erode your freedom and increase your dependency on government.

That’s why this election is the most important election in your lifetime. This is a chance for Americans to stand up and say we will be free!
