So? That's because he ran defending the Iraq War at the nadir of that war's unpopularity.

He's only big government/big tax if you're a huge libertarian. He supports the type of social welfare programs that legendary conservatives like Benjamin Disraeli and Otto von Bismark developed in the first place.

I don't know. I'm not a big Cruz fan, myself. I mean, don't get me wrong, you'd have to put a gun to my head in order to get me to vote for Mitt or Jeb over him, but I've just never really particularly liked him. I like Santorum, Walker, and Huckabee (though Huckabee has some baggage I don't like). I really like Walker because not only do I like his politics, but he's a real purple state (you could even say Wisconsin is blueish) winner. Santorum might pan out to be the better choice (especially if unrest continues in the country), but we'll see.

I just think that there are other candidates with a better chance at winning the General Election with similar platforms. I'm not saying I wouldn't consider him, though. He might end up being the best candidate.
Keep finding more of these quotes. The one thing I love about Santorum is that he says what I'm actually thinking as a Traditionalist Christian, or at least something close to it. I'm sorry, but too many GOPers are too afraid to just be orthodox. They feel like they must compromise their core value just to get a vote or two. Who wants to vote for that milquetoast garbage?
I was very sad when I didn't get to vote for him in Virginia last time because some weird rule meant only Romney and Paul were on the ballot. That being said, I doubt he'd be the best candidate in the running this time.
The return of the Reagan Democrats? Only if the GOP stands up for sanity and law!

What do you expect from a generation that has nothing to save for? They don't want families, and the only reason anybody ever saved a nickel (at least in the long-term) is because of family.
If you actually looked at their results over the past couple of years, they are often more friendly to Democrats than PPP.
California was lost to the GOP forever to the Democrats when Schwarzenegger was elected, especially when he betrayed the California GOP on immigration. The California GOP was only competitive when it took a tough stand on the border, which isn't going to be the case now that the Northeast wing of the GOP took over the state party.
"Further, 73 percent of casualties during the Afghanistan war have occurred since 2009 when President Obama took office and changed the rules of engagement." Yet the media refuses to report on this. Remember when they would every death our soldiers suffered? Yeah, that was under Bush. Now, you hardly hear about the situation over there anymore.
