South Carolina Delegates

To the best of my knowledge,

Like in Iowa, no South Carolina Delegates have been chosen yet. All the networks are still choosing to report this information wrong when they show Gingrich with all the Delegates. According to the resolution signed by the South Carolina GOP in August 2011, the County's will have Conventions in March and April, followed by a state Convention in May to chose the actual delegates. Their system as a 50% penalty, any candidate with 50% of the primary would get 50% of the delegates but no one got 50% so the delegates should be proportional to who's still in the race at that time, and those delegates would not necessarily by bound to vote for that candidate in Florida at the national convention.

Who is unelectable? Pushing Santorum or Gingrich is a joke.

The war goes on, Newt Gingrich beating Romney in South Carolina is actually a great thing for the Ron Paul campaign. The delegates are getting split which means it'll be difficult for Romney, or anyone to get enough, which could result in a brokered convention. Santorum and Gingrich both have little money or organization to continue much farther and probably won't even be on ballot in all the states. Gingrich is missing from the ballot in 2 states and Santorum will likely be missing from 4 state ballots or 565 delegates worth. This is a two man marathon between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

Ron Paul has grassroots support in many states, so South Carolina and Florida won't hurt his campaign much at all. He will be in the race all the way to the convention and hopefully steal the nomination right from under Mr. Perma-smile when his people realize they cannot win without Paul's support.

Iowa Delegates

The Huffington Post and Fox are saying that Ron Paul is shut out of delegates with 13 going to Romney and 12 to Santorum, but the truth is NO DELEGATES have gone to anyone. The Iowa system is complicated. Here is how the delegates are selected.

Precinct caucuses will elect delegates on March 10th's county conventions, which in turn will elect (from their pools of delegate-attendees) delegates to congressional-district conventions and the June 16th state GOP convention, which will in turn elect Iowa’s delegates to the Republican National Convention.
Most importantly, perhaps, Votes for county-convention delegates aren’t too competitive on caucus night, and more attention is paid to national-delegate selection at the later convention votes.

Iowa will eventually elect delegates to the Republican Convention, but only a small percentage of the total 2,286 or 1.2%. And even these are “unbound” delegates, which means they can change their allegiance when they get Tampa in August.

To the best of my knowledge and research, this is how the Iowa system works. I know I wanted to get to the bottom of it, I'm sure some of you did as well.

Can Rick Santorum be President?

Rick Santorum would support a Constitutional Amendment on Marriage which would invalidate currently legal Gay Marriages.

Is this going to win in a general election?

Rick Santorum says he's a fiscal conservative, but is he?

Just a few notes about Santorum.

Sen. Santorum voted for the bridge to nowhere.

In 2003 he voted to extend Medicare drug benefits to seniors, a vote that conservatives have come to characterize as irresponsible. Santorum admitted to making a mistake on Medicare during a ”Fox News Sunday” appearance.

Santorum a lawyer, didn't even live in the district, or the state he was elected from. He lied about his residency. How's that for honesty?

Rick Santorum claims to be a Strong Pro-Life advocate but he personally endorsed Arlan Spector in 2004. Is Spector a Strong Pro-life advocate?


  • Voted NO on restricting UN funding for population control policies. 
  • Voted NO on defining unborn child as eligible for SCHIP. 
  • Voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions.   
  • Voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines.  
  • Voted NO on barring HHS grants to organizations that perform abortions.  
  • Voted NO on prohibiting minors crossing state lines for abortion 

Arlen Spector also helped get ObamaCare passed.

Even for rape and incest and even for saving the mother’s life. None of them justify abortion in Rick Santorum’s opinion.

Santorum’s views are unapologetically black-and-white. He advocates that any doctor performing an abortion under any circumstances should be criminally charged.

Unless it happens to be Rick Santorum’s wife, and she might have died if not for her 20-week-old fetus being “partial birth” aborted.

In October, 1996, his wife Karen had a second trimester abortion. They don’t like to describe it that way. In his 2004 interview with Terry Gross, Santorum characterizes the fetus, who must be treated as an autonomous person, as a practically a gunslinging threat, whom the mother must murder in self-defense. Karen has had to justify her decision to save her own life by explaining that if she died her other children would have lost a mother.
