I found this post on CNN.com via Cafferty File it is a short and to the point blog post about Rick Santorum doing himself in all of a sudden, and Mitt Romney jumping on it in the blink of an eye. Every point is absolutely true but when I read it, the only thought going through my head was, what do you mean Suddenly? Santorum's has been ruining himself since birth. This campaign is just the climax of a hilarious story of egotism meeting fate.

His entire platform, the complete campaign package is geared against women and the LGBT community. I am convinced as a gay man myself that he is completely against women entirely. This is my point right here, the 'L' in LGBT stands for Lesbian, so with the article posted above and all the attacks he has made against the LGBT he shows that ALL WOMEN Lesbian or Hetero have no value to him, just something he may control. Telling a woman what to do with her body is a definite exercised dictation. Who is this DWEEB to tell anyone what to do, he looks as if he hasn't even hit puberty yet and is obviously demonstrating a very strong case of little man syndrome.
Lets take a look at some of his work towards the LGBT Community. Hold on... Wait...
PAUSE... TIME OUT... so as I do my blogs I search for supporting articles that I can share with you... I typed in a search box what I was looking for, something specific I read via twitter recently and I came across this article... which touches on what I said earlier, you are reading this in real time.... no editing done with any of my posts. HIS OWN CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL PRIDES THEMSELVES ON DIVERSITY, THE ALUMNI OF THIS SCHOOL ARE ABSOLUTELY ANTI SANTORUM AND HAVE EVEN CREATED A
“Carmel Catholic Alumni Against Rick Santorum” Facebook page
See the full article here, its quite amusing.
So he was the cast out student that thought he was better than the rest.
Okay, now lets get back to his anti-LGBT campaigning he has been taking on. He stands behind his Catholic upbringing, again please read the "full article" above and you will see that in a poll done by NY TIMES and CBS 44% of Catholics believe that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry, 31% believe they should be allowed Civil Unions, and only 22% believe they should have no type of legal recognition at all. Literally 3/4 of the Catholic population in the United States do not believe what Rick Santorum preaches. He should be running for President he should be running for a position in the high church of Catholicism.
Doing this he's already shooting himself in the foot. Rick Santorum is a joke.
Here are a few things Rick Santorum has said about the LGBT community. Take a moment and read this article via The Eastern Echo. I try to encourage as much as possible for my readers to get involved via twitter and the other organizations that are posted in the "Get Involved" section on every page of the blog found in the side bars.
Now that you have the information, I just want to say WE AS A PEOPLE need to fight this kind of candidate at all costs. He will not stop at just Women's Rights and LGBT Rights. If you support one and not the other that is fine too, you really should open your eyes and mind more, but to each their own. Regardless to which you support or both... you need to fight this guy from making it to the main election in November. As most know who follow my blog I support Ron Paul the whole way, Romney and Gingrich are their own issues. Romney is the anti-gay Obama, and Gingrich when it comes to gay rights feels that gays will ruin the sanctity of marriage even though he divorced his first wife who was sick with cancer and dying at the time and then divorced his second because she wouldn't agree to an "open marriage" and has had the same problem with his current marriage and wanting it to be open. Yet, to him, two people of the same sex committing themselves solely to one another based on love and integrity is going to ruin what marriage is about. Ron Paul seems to be left out of all commentary via talk radio and a lot of the coverage following the presidential candidacy race, mainly because he can hold strong numbers, the youth of America supports him, he has libertarian views, he believes in federalism and privatizing everything. The general reports after all the debates in which he participates in state that Ron Paul is the only candidate with any substance in his views and responses... though its clear the moderators, who are partial to the three mentioned above, seem to leave him out and ask his opinion on specific topics. At the end of the day, I support Ron Paul because he believes in true Democracy, for the people by the people. Personally as democratic you think I would be I am not. I do believe that democrats can (not always) have a inclination to give money out to unnecessary causes and spend frivolously, again not always but can. BEING A TRUE REPUBLICAN is to be FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE and nothing more. Separate church and state, follow the concept of democracy while guiding our economy fiscally in the right direction. Bills and measures that are going to cost us money and do nothing for us at the same time are putting us further in the hole and we will no longer be our own country but the "territory" of another power. Ex: Obamacare, it takes up 1/5-1/6 of our economy and what does it do for us? I haven't seen anything from it.
Okay this rant was a little scatter-brained but at the end of the day I told you this was done in real time all the way down to the supporting articles, read them and you will see the organization of thought and point that I may have lacked. I'm marking this paragraph as end of the relative subject. If you continue reading there is a message to my current readers who are probably surprised by the new post....
Sorry I have not posted in quite a while, I have been taking time to work out a few things in my own personal situation that needed attending. Also, I have been rethinking the direction of this blog and what I'm trying to convey to everyone and what information I want to put on the table. I feel focusing on only local gay rights although that will be the primary topic found throughout my posts past, present and future... I decided I'm going to expand a little more. Any new information with Prop 8 and the appeals until same-sex marriage is legalized and recognized will be posted immediately and even though I have been silent I have been checking every day for substantial news, not just something that will leave you wondering, "Well, WHEN IS THIS ALL GOING TO HAPPEN?" Also, I will be focusing more on general HUMAN RIGHTS. Including women, minorities, lgbt, and so on. Because there is so much anguish behind this subject in the country to date it will be hard for me to keep you posted. I will be posting short posts directing you towards articles found on the web. A lot of information can be found by signing up for twitter and following the article sources you will find a follow button on almost every article page you read. Twitter is not just for seeing your friends every thoughts and lame ass pictures that have nothing to do with anything important. It is also a way to filter what news and information you would like to read on a daily basis. So I encourage each and everyone of you to sign up for twitter and follow me and those you find in articles. You can follow me by clicking the following link then clicking follow http://www.twitter.com/jonscottwntstop.
Thank you guys for following and please know you will be seeing a different stream of information in form of short paragraphs leading you to outside articles, and trust I will be stating my opinion if that is the type of blog post you enjoy.
I'll never stop.

Found this article at SDGLN.com thought you might want to read it, so you know what's going on with the court hearings on Thursday, Dec. 8th. The 9th Circuit are not making their decision as of yet as to whether or not they are going to solidify the ruling of then District Judge Vaughn Walker. This is however one of the final steps towards marriage equality. Since there are remote viewing of a delayed broadcasting of the trial you can follow the trial via Twitter by following @AFER. I have followed @AFER for every hearing I wasn't able to view be it that I was working or what have you, and I can honestly say, they will update (almost literally) sentence for sentence, word for word, step by step of the trial.
If you would like to learn more about how to get involved with your rights and the rights of millions, please see the upper right corner of the blog where you will find a table labeled "Get Involved". Godspeed.

SAN FRANCISCO – The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals this week will hear two major motions in the Proposition 8 case, setting the stage for rulings by year’s end or in early in 2012.
A three-judge panel will hear oral arguments on:
-- Motion by the pro-marriage supporters to release the Prop 8 trial video
-- Motion by the anti-marriage proponents’ to throw out the case because the judge did not disclose that he is gay
The hearing, which starts at 2:30 pm PT Thursday, Dec. 8, is expected to last two hours.
On Aug. 4, 2010, federal district Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, but anti-marriage foes appealed that decision to the Ninth Circuit. Since then, anti-gay groups have tied up in court Judge Walker’s historical decision ruling that Prop 8 was unconstitutional on several legal principles.
The high-powered legal team led by Ted Olson and David Boies, representing the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), successfully argued why Prop 8 was unconstitutional and discriminatory toward gay and lesbian couples who wish to marry.
“Our case for marriage equality is back on the fast track and we are poised for dramatic progress in the coming months,” said Adam Umhoefer, AFER’s senior project director.
“We have one final step before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirms the historic Federal District Court decision which found marriage discrimination unconstitutional,” he said. “I am confident that the Ninth Circuit will swiftly confirm the personal freedom of every American.”
AFER offered a preview of what will happen on Thursday.
Release the tapes
In the first hour, Olson will argue that the public has a First Amendment right to see video footage of the historic Prop 8 trial. The District Court has already ruled that the American people have a vested interest in transparent court proceedings, but the Prop 8 proponents appealed that decision. They are trying to keep the video under lock and key because they don’t want anyone to know that they failed in court, where reason and facts matter.
Also arguing that the tapes should be released is a media coalition comprised of The Associated Press, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, FOX News, NBC News, the Hearst Corp., Dow Jones & Co., and others.
Motion to vacate
In the second hour, Boies will address the proponents’ motion asking that our District Court victory be vacated because the judge who heard the case is gay and in a long-term relationship. The anti-marriage forces are trying everything they can to get the case thrown out because they know that reason and truth are on our side.
This tactic was universally condemned in the media and it took only a day for Chief Judge James Ware to rule against the homophobic motion. We are confident that the appeals court will affirm that being gay has no bearing on a judge’s impartiality, just as courts have historically done with cases involving race, gender and religion.
Hearing to be broadcast
The court has allowed a delayed broadcast of the hearing and has set up remote viewing locations in Pasadena, Calif.; Portland, Ore., and Seattle. You can also follow AFER's live updates from the courthouse on Twitter.
