Here’s Rick Santorum being interviewed by Sean Hannity on Hannity’s show for his new book, Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting To An America That Works. It all starts about 50 seconds in. Enjoy the interview:


There shouldn’t be any need to introduce Rick Santorum. He was the candidate that should’ve been sent to the White House in 2012. Far too many people like to wax poetic about his support for Senator Arlen Specter, but his support gave us a conservative on the Supreme Court. That tells me that this man has principles. This is a man that even had his wife second guessing this move, but for him, the cause was far more important than what individuals thought of him.

It’s men like this that should be trumpeted. They are as important to the American cause as any. He’s not a man to shrink or hide from abortion, or gay marriage, or any issue at all. I know Rick Santorum from watching him serve in the U.S. Senate. He isn’t just a man of words. He can back them up. And he has indeed written a book. The book is called, Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting To An America That Works.

Below is the link for the book. You can even read the Introduction and a portion of the first chapter. Or, you can listen to it on audio. So click the link and learn what I already know, learn what Mark Levin knows, and learn what many conservatives know. This is the time to put the Democrats in a permanent minority. The book lays out the plan. And the rest is up to you:



Mark Levin is interviewed by Neil Cavuto on the heels of the 5-year Tea Party anniversary. Enjoy it. Hat tip Mass Tea Party:

It is with my fondest of wishes that you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah this holiday season. For my atheist friends, may the kindness and generosity of Christmas cross your doorstep.

There is no finer place on the Internet than Free Republic. It is the coup de grace of the coup de tat. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, “Free Republic has some of the finest minds I’ll ever know.” There is no better place that offers the best examples of Christmas than this great forum. There is no better example of generosity and kindness than Free Republic. There is no finer example of principles of conservative values than here. In the best of traditions, FReepers celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or the holiday season, giving more than they receive. With the continued support of this web site, Free Republic will stomp out liberalism with impunity.

This forum is made up of the best, brightest, and bravest of our fine Republic. Whether you are Jewish, Christian, Agnostic, or Atheist, you are beacons of conservatism that exhibit generosity far more than you’re given credit. You are, by your very essence, examples of the greatest America has to offer. I wish you the happiest of holidays from the bottom of my heart.

Without you waging war on liberalism, the America we know today would be a socialist Mecca. Keep fighting the battle to repeal Obamacare. Stay strong and we will win the day. So thank you for the tireless efforts, your patriotism, and enduring optimism. You are Red, White and Blue America. You are the difference makers for the United States. And you demonstrate excellence in conservatism. Thanks be to God.

For those that are away from home, our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, coastguardsmen, and merchant marines, I give my undying gratitude and wish you the merriest of Christmases, Hanukkahs, and good will towards all men. Thank you for your service to this country and your noble efforts in spreading liberty. Know that there are far more that support you than is covered in the mainstream media.

You are the brightest hope of America’s future. You are not ignorant, violent, or racist. You believe in equality for all men and women, yet know that it must not extend to a great experiment; an experiment rooted in Marxist fundamentals. To the women of Free Republic: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and thank you for being good mothers, wives, lovers, and conservatives. Without you, feminism could’ve destroyed this great country. I thank God for women like you, raising another generation of conservatives. We certainly couldn’t have come far without you.

And a special thanks to Rush Limbaugh. You have galvanized the conservative movement, enacted the “New Media,” and given hope and optimism to so many people. You ardently support Americans and give us daily doses of truths. Thank you for keeping “The Passion” alive. Merry Christmas, Rush Limbaugh.

There only two men that could’ve changed my life for the better. One was my father, the other Rush Limbaugh. These two men have had indelible impacts on my life, granting me a moral and conservative compass that guided me, and continues to guide me through life’s journey. May God bless you and shine His light upon you.

Thank you to David Limbaugh for his guidance, kindness, and unending efforts to combat the persecution against Christianity. Whether you think you deserve it or not, you make a difference. More than you know. You represent Christians well, David, and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. God bless you, sir. You’ve earned it.

A thank you goes out to Mark R. Levin for The Liberty Amendments: Restoring The American Republic, and for his daily radio program. He reminds us all that the U.S. Constitution defines conservatism. He is an undeniable genius and he will help the “citizen activists breathe life back into the Constitution.” I cannot thank the ‘Constitutional Engine of Conservatism’ enough for your love of America and your tenacious nature in supporting liberty. Thank you, sir.

A Merry Christmas goes out to all the FReeper business owners, to those that have survived the Marxist assault on America. Thank you for continuing to endure the taxes and the encroachments of liberty on your business. Thank you for suffering through smoking bans, higher taxes and government tyranny. Thank you for your donations to charitable organizations. Thank you for those Christmas bonuses. Thank you for the sixty to eighty hour work weeks in an effort to provide those goods and services at an equilibrium price. Most of all, thank you for your indefatigable entrepreneurial spirit. Without that spirit, America would still be making buggy whips.

And finally, to the “citizen activists,” a very Merry Christmas goes out to you as you begin the arduous task of restoring the American Republic. Without you, America could never have succeeded in its Founding, nor will it continue to succeed as the greatest country on Earth. There is indeed something special to be said for those that resist tyranny. Your candle burns brighter than any other – flickering against all odds of overbearing and meddling federal bureaucracy. Thank you so much. American needs your fight, your spirit and your undying devotion to this country.

Merry Christmas, FReepers! May you have a very FReeper Christmas! God bless you and your family this holiday season. If not for all of you, I would not have the inspiration to write about conservatism. I owe you more than you know, and hope God blesses each and every one of you this holiday.

If you haven’t paid enough attention, you would likely assume that there are only two elections in the entire country. The first, involving that often seen rhinoceros species Governor Chris Christie – who has been in bed with more Democrats than Ted Kennedy, and the second, involving the gubernatorial race pitting Ken Cuccinelli – a real conservative and Terry McAuliffe – an old Clinton retread whom Rush Limbaugh lovingly refers to as “the punk.”

Many conservatives are holding their breath – rightfully so in Virginia – and hoping for a victory for Cuccinelli. I couldn’t agree more. He has solid conservative credentials, and was the first to file suit against the Affordable Care Act. It’s easy to see that he is a man of action whose interest is governed in the civil society, the U.S. Constitution and in the welfare of the liberty of not only Virginians, but that of the American people.

It would be magnificent if Cuccinelli was to claim a victory tonight over McAuliffe and the GOP establishment. But it won’t be the first time that Americans have suffered defeat and returned stronger to claim victory. And it won’t be the first time for conservatives to suffer such a defeat. Reagan did it and returned to conquer both the Democrat Party and the RINOs that sought his defeat.

Our history is replete with defeats. On August 27, 1776, the American people and their cause suffered a resounding defeat the Battle of Long Island. A few short months later, General Washington took his troops across the frozen Delaware River and took the fight to the Hessians. It was a resounding victory as best referenced by Jack E. Levin’s book, George Washington: The Crossing. Thank goodness that George Washington didn’t surrender and go home. Instead, he pressed on with the fight and the American cause and its people won the day in 1781.

As a Texan, I can remember one such defeat on March 6, 1836, at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, where 182 Americans – not just Texans – held off a superior force for 34 days. On April 21, 1836, the cry of “Remember the Alamo,” was heard as Texas won its independence.

Americans don’t capitulate. We’re not France. We’re not even close – despite the attempts by the Democrat Party and the GOP establishment to manage the surrender. I would like to ask when we surrendered. Did we surrender after the Battle of Long Island? No. Did Texas surrender after the Alamo? No. Did the North surrender after the Battle of Bull Run? No. And did we surrender after Pearl Harbor? Hell, no!

The same can be said of conservatives. We didn’t surrender after Clinton was elected in 1992 and 1996. We didn’t surrender after Obama was elected in 2008 and 2012, and we certainly as hell won’t surrender if “The Punk” defeats Cucinelli. Not now! Not ever! Or in the words of “The Great One,” Mark Levin, “We’re not going anywhere!”

There is a great awakening taking place, and chance to exercise Mark Levin’s Liberty Amendments. For those that wish not to, “breathe life back into the Constitution,” I would love to ask:
