Former 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate
Former US Senator from Pennsylvania

Rick Santorum

Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum


Santorum position on Civil Liberties

Santorum is, for all intents and purpose, a staunch conservative on issues relating to civil liberties. He opposes same-sex marriages and unions as he feels their motives are questionable, opining that they crave society’s acceptance of their ‘bad behavior’. He also opposes adoption for gay couples, as the presence of children in a same sex marriage is against ‘the order of nature’.

Nevertheless, his defense and advocacy of the perfect blend of the American nuclear family, imbued with conservative values, high morals and religious upbringing, tempered with the strong hand of the state, appeals to a significant number of middle class Americans.

His support of federal wiretapping legislation, the Patriot Act and other post 9/11 measures however, is viewed negatively by just as many voters.
