Rick Suspends 2016 Campaign

On Wed., Feb. 3, 2016, Senator Santorum suspended his presidential campaign. 

I was saddened but understand.  Thank you, Rick, for fighting!  Remember, Lincoln lost many elections, too.

You were and are still my candidate.  You were so in 2012 and you were my first choice again (after some internal deliberation) in 2016.

I hope you are selected as a VP running mate in 2016.  If so, then I will once again place my pen and time at the service of your campaign.

If not, then until next time (either in 2020 or 2024), I suspend this blog The Great Eagle, too, and await for your return.

God bless you and God bless the United States of America!

Rick's Official Announcement & This Blog's Return

Last Wed., May 27, 2015, Rick Santorum announced his candidacy for the U.S. President in 2016.

He is my candidate.

I saw his announcement.  He talked about values dear to him and to the American people: family, repealing Common Core, prioritizing veterans, and security and liberty against the Islamic State.

Rick called the family the "first economy".

Rick called for ways to "maximize potential" of students by driving a "stake through Common Core".

Rick said "peace comes through strength" and asked people to join him to "help these veterans".

Rick was featured in an online magazine of the Islamic State and said, "They know who I am, and I know who they are!  ...  If I'm the next President, we will defeat them [Islamic State]".

I only have my pen to give.

As I have done in 2012, so I do now for 2016.

May God bless us all.

3 Reasons Why I Said "He's My Boy" to My Wife

Over the past month, three clear reasons emerged this past month that convinced me to support Rick Santorum:

First, he clearly supported the First Amendment and religious liberty.  Compared to the other candidates, Rick was very clear about toleration being "a two-way street".  Here's another link comparing the candidates HERE.

Second, Rick was targeted by ISIS as an enemy.  Out of all the candidates, Rick has the most experienced record in foreign policy.

Third, Rick was the only candidate to say that he would not attend the wedding a theoretical friend who was engaging in a so-called same-sex marriage.  Cruz and Rubio were not consistent with their faith tradition on this.

Recently, I turned to my wife and said of Rick, "He's my boy!" 

We supported and campaigned for him in 2012, and my conscience before God supports him in 2016.

This blog, The Great Eagle, is back!

Rick Santorum Targeted by ISIS Says More About the Man Than ISIS


Rick being targeted should tell us something more about Rick Santorum as President of the United States than about ISIS.

I looked at a couple of articles from the mainstream media that covered this.  And I noticed that the first few comments from readers expressed admiration for Rick Santorum.

This should incite admiration from not just Americans but the world over.

I Voted for Rick Santorum; Note on Rick as VP Pick

Yesterday, I voted for Rick Santorum in the primaries.  I wasn't planning to do that, until I saw a politically-savvy friend of mine do that.  And he told everyone about it.

So I did, too.

On a different note, I wanted to blog about the great good it would do for Rick to be the VP pick.  But I am off the campaign trail.

Let's just say for now that if he becomes the VP pick, I would definitely come back to the campaign trail and light some fires for a Romney-Santorum 2012 ticket.

Jan. 15, 2012 - April 10, 2012

Along with Rick Santorum, I am suspending my grassroots involvement.

Thank you everyone!

I still need to blog about meeting Rick Santorum.
