I recommend any American FJers move to Europe if that happens. You can also come up here to Canada, but we do have Harper...

I doubt Santorum will name a Duggar. But, just to be safe, I'm not voting for him. (I know, hard decision, right?)

This does make me think... I bet you anything Josh wants to be President/thinks he might actually have a chance of being President someday. You can just see it in his smug little eyes. When you see the pictures of him in the suit with Santorum and all his favorite bigwigs...or getting up to do a little public speaking...you just know he thinks the Oval Office is out there in his future.

The Duggars are too dumb to realize their support will get them used, then thrown away by the campaign. They're politically radioactive to the mainstream, since every crazy ATI value would suddenly be brought to light during confirmation.

All of Santorum's nominees for Secretary of State, Interior, etc. have to be confirmed by the Senate. I cannot see any Duggar making it past all the smarter people in the room. That being said, I would kill to see Jim Bob grilled by the Senate. Can you imagine Jim Bob explaining why he has the experience to be Secretary of State? He has been to all of four or five countries. Plus, he is a man, so he is obviously smarter and would be much better than a woman like Hillary Clinton. Realistically, even hardcore conservative Republican politicians in Washington would be embarassed by the country bumpkin who proudly raises undereducated children.

Santorum utilized the Duggars for the little bit of publicity it brought him. Realistically, he doesn't need them anymore. All the attention is on him now. I would bet that the Duggars will be phased out by his camp. Although, I can see them following him around the country anyway because I am sure they think they are the reason he is doing so much better.

I think the Duggars will see how little he thinks of them if he gets the nomination. No way he will ever be President.

This reminds me of a radio commercial where a housewife tried to argue for a delivery truck job and argued that dropping her kids off at all their various activities gave her experience. :lol:

I don't think Santorum has any use for them beyond publicity but if he was going to give them a kickback, I can see JB as maybe secretary of education? Seeing how they both want to dismantle public schools and all?

I could see them getting some random position involving media and fundies. Nothing official and nothing real. Santorum may be frothy but he is a politician.

Santorums money comes from Foster Friess, Friess in in bed with Douggies daddy.

But lets not worry there are more than a few moderates in the republican party, they dislike Santorum as much as we do.

Or maybe he could appoint Smuggar to the Supreme Court. After all, he did talk about getting a law degree. That's almost the same thing as an actual degree and experience, right?

I would think if elected, Santorum would reward his biggest donors. Sure Jim Bob gave him a lot of free campaign workers, but he couldn't have that much money to donate. I can easily picture Jim Bob expecting some high official appointment, but he'd end up disappointed. Can't buy influence used and save the difference.

If Santorum becomes president, the following may happen.

The states may get the right to regulate birth control.

Abortion may become illegal

He will push for a personhood law

There will be a huge backlash against gay rights including marriage and adoption

He will set women's rights back at least 50 years.

The environment will suffer.

He thinks global warming is a fraud. He thinks fracking is a good thing.

He thinks that medicare should be privatized.

He supports social security privatizion

He supports more tax cuts for the rich and for corporations.

He supports massive deregulation of health, worker and consumer protection

He will attack Iran

He will send troops back to Iraq

He will defund education. He doesn't believe in early education.

He calls Obama an elitist snob for wanting to put a college degree within reach of all

I am sure that I can up with more.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
