Santorum is the best choice for president

As a young and ambitious patriotic American, I fear for my country. I fear for my future and for my children's future and that one day I will spend my sunset years telling stories of when men were free. We find ourselves at a great crossroads on the road to serfdom, facing the most important election of our lifetime. We need a real leader with true American values. Rick Santorum is this man. He's deeply rooted in faith and family with both the courage and conviction to beat Barack Obama. When he speaks, he speaks from his heart. Mr. Santorum is a man with a plan whose "Made in America" model will get this nation back on track to prosperity and exceptionalism.

Additionally, he would protect the patient-doctor relationship by repealing Obamacare, a socialized medicine mandate Mitt Romney unapologetically instituted in his state and a position Newt Gingrich has taken for his entire career. Furthermore, Mr. Santorum is the most electable, a point proven by a Rasmussen poll that identified him as the only Republican candidate capable of beating President Obama. While Mr. Romney lost his run for Senate to Ted Kennedy and was unable to win a second term as governor, Mr. Santorum won in the prominent swing state of Pennsylvania.

Rick Santorum is clearly the best candidate for the presidency, and I urge Marylanders to support him when they go to the polls on April 3. As Thomas Jefferson put it, "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my children may have peace." Let the voice of the real America be heard so that the future of our country is one we may recognize.

    I found The Sun's editorial, "Beyond the website" (Nov. 23), about how well the new-and-improved Maryland Health Connection had launched to be ironic and not in a good way.

    Gruber and his liberal lies

    Nice coverage of the Jonathan Gruber hearing which amounted to, I think, about 60 words ("Obamacare adviser sorry for comments," Dec. 10). He appeared to spend most of the time denying, lying and obfuscating — true traits of liberals these days.
