Culture Challenge of the Week: The Tipping Point

Over the past few weeks, President Obama has requested a trillion-dollar increase to the debt limit, appointed another liberal to head the Domestic Policy Council, rejected the Keystone XL oil pipeline and rallied nearly 200 big-time Hollywood supporters to campaign for him.

It’s business as usual - just another month in his relentless campaign to destroy American values and prosperity.

Although Mr. Obama’s personal work ethic lags - in 2011, he strolled the links in more than 30 golf outings and played hooky from the Oval Office on more than 30 vacation days - he keeps a blistering pace when it comes to fundraising. Candidate Obama has attended campaign fundraisers, on average, every five days, raising more than $200 million in 2011 alone.

Make no mistake, Mr. Obama will be a formidable opponent this November.

We need our very best candidate if we are to defeat him.

This election is perhaps the most crucial of our lifetime. Our country has reached its moral and fiscal tipping point. Unless conservatives come together behind a strong candidate, the results of November’s election may plunge our nation headlong into an abyss of moral decadence, truncated liberty and bankrupt socialism - a place of no return.

How to Save Your Family: Support Rick Santorum- A Bold, Consistent and Principled Leader

I urge you to give your passionate support to Rick Santorum - a bold, principled leader with the courage to fight for America.

Why Rick?

He’s a persuasive voice for the truth, and he lives that truth every day. He’s also the most electable. (More on that in a moment.)

Every day - in town meetings, national debates and door-to-door campaigning - Rick gives voice to the issues we care about most - limited government, economic freedom, military defense and the sanctity of marriage and human life. And he has done so consistently over 20 years of public service.

As a principled conservative, Rick was on the right side long before it was fashionable. One reporter described him as “a tea party kind of guy before there was a tea party.”

As a lifelong advocate for families and conservative values, Rick Santorum is the real thing. I know it; I’ve had the immense honor of working with him on a project and have seen firsthand that he faces turbulent headwinds without flinching. He consistently has supported traditional marriage in the face of intimidation and threats.

I’ve known him to speak passionately for the preborn to a nearly empty Senate chamber, convinced that his words needed to be said, even if no one listened. (Because he followed his convictions, his words saved the life of an unborn child whose mother heard him speak.) And I’ve seen him boldly denounce Islamist terrorists while this administration ducked its head and spoke vaguely of “criminals,” unwilling to upset liberals with the truth.
