A Minirant I Posted About Santorum On Facebook

In case anyone wants to know where I stand on that. xD (Also, I still can’t hear the name Santorum without thinking of the “alternate definition…”)

I posted it in response to someone’s question about why he terrifies me.

“I’m just desperately hoping everything he says is grandstanding or lying. From the mildly irritating policies about teaching religion in science classes to the quite worrying cheerful threats to bomb Iranian weapons sites to the incredibly scary characterization of the catholic sex crimes scandal as “a basic homosexual relationship” to the downright-terrifying vows to police each and every thing Americans do in the bedroom (insisting there is no “right to privacy” under the law), including banning USE (not sale, use) of contraceptives, enacting laws against sodomy (I’m not even sure he knows what that word means), and criminalizing pornography (which would make the “war on drugs” look like a couple kids passing gum under the table).

(That was a really long sentence! And definitely not proper writing!)

I don’t think he’ll even get the nomination, because I still have a shred of hope in humanity, but what scares me is that too many people are treating him like he’s not a maniac hyped up on the thrill of power. They’re treating him like he’d be an acceptable person to put his finger on the button and his signature on our laws for the next four years.

My solace is that by the time the new pres (whoever it is) gets sworn in I’ll be 18, because if anyone like Santorum ever sat in the oval office, I would absolutely move out of the country.

He is almost everything I’m afraid all religious people are at heart, and I can’t imagine why people are scared of a Muslim takeover when this guy is standing behind a debate table without judgement or ridicule. A Christian theocracy and a Muslim theocracy will end up the exact same way: bloody and destroying themselves from within.”

And I did mean it – if that man won the election I’d seriously look into living in another country, and if he did HALF the things he says he wants to, I’d move to the fucking UK, taxes be damned.
