Dear Friends, amv"sh
I am not into politics. When I get passionate about a politician I don't hide it. But then again, when I don't like what I see, I too am vocal often getting me into trouble and getting former friends to put me on their rejection list. And just because I support someone doesn't mean that it's unconditional. The trust and support must be earned and ongoing. If at any point there is a parting of the ways, I will explain my position vociferously. But then again in the future I might be passionately supportive again.
For now, Rick Santorum has caught my attention. When he was still relatively unknown and campaigning in Iowa David HaIvri posted this on facebook.
Santorum: 'All The People Who Live In The West Bank Are Israelis' http://thinkprogress.org/security/2011/11/21/373985/santorum-west-bank-israelis/?mid=534&mobile=nc I saw the clip of Santorum and an exchange with a CNN reporter and I was excited. "Santorum even went so far as to compare Israeli annexation of the West Bank to the acquisition of Texas during the Mexican-American war: " He was quick and sharp in his responses with the reporter.
I got on his email list and Glenn Becks email list and I would like to now share with you other interviews with Santorum. In the 2nd interview, he said he is frustrated with the Press because they don't want to ask about some real issues. So he relies on independent Glenn Beck radio show to have these serious questions asked and answered. If Rick Santorum can't depend on the Press to get his ideas out there, what chance do Yesha Activists?
3 Videos of Glenn Beck interviewing Rick Santorum
Please watch the three videos on this link. The more I listened to him the more I loved what he said. He is rational and caring. On the third video his wife is interviewed and 3 of his kids make an appearance and it is clear that they are real and stand for what is good in this world. They are beautiful people within and without. They are unashamed to speak of G-d and not on an ego trip. Karen Santorum says that they are doing this because they believe it is G-d's will because otherwise you have to be crazy.
Here is another nice interview.

Subject: Rick Santorum: Fight of his life
|Dear Patriot, |
We just gave Mitt Romney the fight of his life in his home state and now we are in for a long, important battle to the Convention. But before I get to that, I just have to pause and tell you a story about my grandfather.
He was an immigrant from Italy. He became a coal miner, and he worked hard every day. To think that his grandson could rise to the top tier of the most important Presidential election in American history is something that could only happen in America.
I thought of my grandfather a lot during the early days of this campaign. I was spending long nights crisscrossing Iowa to talk with voters, driving in my own car while other candidates were taking private jets.
It's hard to be an underdog. Let me tell you, it's much more difficult to run a grassroots, shoe-leather campaign where you actually talk to voters, than to throw millions of dollars on TV.
But now, with 10 states voting in the next week, we need those millions. Will you help us?
Our campaign proved again last night that Republican voters want a work horse to take on President Obama. They see that in our campaign.
Now, we move on to Super Tuesday. In only 6 days, 10 states will vote. That means we have to raise a lot of money to compete with the millions Romney and his backers are dumping into this race. Will you add your $35 and help us fight back?
I am putting together a campaign of regular Americans who understand that now is the time to save America. These are Americans with the courage to fight the liberal left – not with moderate mushiness, but with bold ideas.
Will you join the millions of Americans who are rallying to our campaign and donate today?
We had a great fight in Michigan, but we can't let up. Now is the time. Let's do what Americans always do when faced with a challenge – we fight.
It won't be easy. But it's worth it.
Senator Rick Santorum
P.S. We can win this thing. But we need to raise more money for Super Tuesday to make it happen. Will you join us?
