As I daily look to God for guidance in my life, I tend to support Republican candidates who will acknowledge Him and His divine purpose, those candidates who put Him first. My last article threw support behind Rick Santorum. After researching him and finding him to be the most conservative candidate out of the GOP presidential nominee field, I see a strong candidate who is the best person who can deliver a major blow to Obama.

.

It’s not about the candidate with the most money or who is most suave at speaking. It’s about the candidate who has the strongest convictions and Rick Santorum exemplifies that as he addressed voters in Iowa after a strong second place finish behind Mitt Romney. Listen to Rick Santorum’s remarks at the video here.

“I’ve survived the challenges…by the daily grace that comes from God. For giving me His grace every day for loving me warts and all, I offer a public thanks to God,” said Santorum, as he recalled his “sacred friendship” with God.

Santorum is a man who knows where his strength comes from.  He then thanked the people of Iowa, “You, by standing up and not compromising, by standing up and being bold…leading with that burden and responsibility you have to be first, you have taken the first step of taking back this country.”

He is mindful of struggles his grandfather faced giving him and his father a future in America. Santorum later expounded on the message of struggle, independence, and hope as he asked the question if we will be a nation in the future who will lean on government for everything, or will we be a nation that respects the individual’s rights to make a living and his way on his own without interference?

Santorum recalled what his grandfather and father taught him: “Work hard, work hard, work hard…there are so many men and women right now who would love to work hard but they don’t have the opportunity,” he said.

He reminded all that there is a difference between the Republican and Democrat parties. On the Democrat side, there is the increased dependency mentality.  The Republican side believes that cutting taxes and reducing spending will make everything alright.

Santorum explained further what he wanted to do, what must be done. Yes he wants to cut taxes, but Santorum wants a balanced budget.  He wants to slash 5 trillion dollars over next 5 years, flatten the tax code, and cut the corporate tax in half because it’s the highest in the world. “We need to be competitive,” he said.

He recognizes that it is the manufacturing jobs that have built small town America. “...this administration is crushing business,” Santorum said.

He believes he can win as Mr. Santorum said, “What wins in America are bold ideas, sharp contrasts, and a plan that includes everyone…and a plan that includes people from all across the economic spectrum…a plan that says we will work together to get America to work.”

Be sure to listen to more of Rick Santorum’s ideas:

The core of Santorum’s message is about freedom.

If you want more of the same you have seen from politicians, then Rick Santorum is not for you.  Santorum is a man who speaks with conviction and passion as he said to Iowans, “...I do not speak from notes…” (although there are times that require it). This indicates to me a man who knows what he wants to articulate to the voters, wants to engage voters, and is speaking from the heart.

If you want to see a new vision unfold for America, it’s time to back a candidate with visionary ideas, a man with a humble approach, and that candidate is GOP presidential nominee Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.
